Last week, I told you to stop thinking so hard about what to make for dinner and suggested that you find a food blog or two to make those decisions for you. But there are so many food blogs out there, how are you supposed to know which ones to read? I’ve done a lot of wading through a ton of sites to figure out which ones I like best (I was literally subscribed to 25 food blogs at one point!). I’ve narrowed it down to my top 5 food blogs, and here they are! All of these sites are packed full of healthy and delicious recipes that even a beginner home-cook could whip up!
This site is great if you are someone (like me) who truly loves food. The recipes are unique and exciting and everything I’ve made has been super tasty! Gina’s sarcastic and dry sense of humor also makes it a fun one to read. If you aren’t an adventurous eater, this one might push your boundaries a little. That said, most of the recipes are still pretty quick and easy to make.
Check out her Seared Salmon with Tomato Corn Salsa for a bright and summery dinner! Quick, easy, delicious! What more could you want?
While this blog goes a little more extreme that I do dietarily (gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly), I still love the focus on whole foods and the collection of weekly dinner plans. Some of these recipes can be a bit more involved and have a longer list of ingredients, so I save them for the weekend when I have more time to spend in the kitchen, but the results are always worth the effort!
The Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with Chicken and Caramelized Onions is one of my go to fall recipes. So creamy and luxurious without all the calories of traditional pasta and alfredo sauce!
This blog has a huge selection of diverse recipes (I love the Lebanese options!). With nutrition facts and customizable recipes, this site is perfect if you’re counting calories and/or need to cook for a bigger crowd. (The fact that the author lives in my hometown (GR represent!) has not biased my opinion at all!)
I adore the Slow Cooker Lebanese Lentil Soup! It’s so easy to throw everything in my crockpot before I leave for work and the finished soup is absolutely beautiful to look at satisfying to eat.
Not only are there a ton of delicious recipes on this site, but a bunch of them have videos to help you see how to make each dish! They are super helpful if you’re still building your confidence in the kitchen! This should be your top site if you have any food allergies because there is a special dietary menu that will help you find the recipes you can use. This site goes beyond food and provides a great selection of workout videos as well!
This may be my favorite Lemon Bar recipe. It’s quick and easy and they don’t taste anywhere near as healthy as they are!
This blog was extremely influential in getting me on track with healthier eating habits. I still reference it multiple times a week to plan my meals. I haven’t found a single recipe I haven’t liked and most of them are easy enough to throw together on a weeknight when I’m crunched for time. There is also has a huge collection of weekly dinner plans!
My favorite recipe (so far) is the Skinny Chicken Enchiladas. I grew up on my mom’s homemade Mexican food, but these give Mom a run for her money!
With so many great blogs out there, I’m sure I’m missing out on some great ones. What are your favorite food blogs? Comment below so I can check them out too!
