Blogs are all the rage these days. The fact that people get paid to write about their lives or just post pictures of the recipes they cook is honestly amazing. I don’t really understand how all that works but I’m certainly impressed by it. Hey, even this is being published on a blog. I personally find it pretty cool that all the news that’s fit to print is no longer just in the NYTimes. There’s a lot to print that we can post on the internet that a captive audience will read and be inspired by.
Alright, alright, we admit that not all of these three blogs have much (or anything at all) to do with nutrition. But, in an effort to maintain a balance between work and play, we’ve decided to highlight a few blogs that inspire us, give us wanderlust and help keep us on track on the days all we want to do is sit on the couch and eat chocolate. Hey, a balanced diet is only one part of holistic wellness, right?
1. Crepes of Wrath
Not only is this author hysterical (even the title of the blog is great), but all her pictures are really gorgeous. She also lives a very desirable life that includes great food and drink, usually in moderation. Two things about her blog I like best is that not all of her recipes are truly recipes (she has a great roadmap to charcuterie boards) and the blog is curated in such a way that I really enjoy seeing how each recipe fits into her life. She also is a big proponent of bringing leftovers to lunch so go grab your ingredients and begin cooking!
2. Nutrition Stripped
This blog is amazing. The author is an RD who, like us, approaches wellness in a holistic way. Her recipes are simple and the blog is full of other important information, like seasonal produce guides, healthy travel recipes and basic nutrition information explaining the importance of each macronutrient. Given the variety of the topics covered on the blog, we think it’s a great resource for recipes but also for helpful holistic wellness tips.
3. Our Open Road
Okay so this blog has absolutely nothing to do with nutrition. But, it is inspirational. We love that this family lives so minimally and focuses on the important things in life like family and friends. They truly are inspiring and their pictures are incredible! Holistic wellness is so much more than just what you eat, that we wanted to highlight a blog that focuses on appreciating what you have and loving what you do.
4. Love and Lemons
Okay this blog is actually a food blog, but we love that every recipe is an easy yet innovative approach to preparing food. Bonus: most of the recipes are vegan and gluten free, or give adjustments to make them as such. It’s a blog with, again, beautiful photos of recipes you will want to make for dinner tonight because you happen to have all the ingredients on hand and it won’t take you hours to make. It’s really a foodie blog with a healthy spin, which is something we love and appreciate.
