hello lovelies! a few weeks ago i got a great question pop up in my inbox from ashley of gilded house. i thought you all might be interested in my answer, so i’m turning our inbox covo into a post for you all. let’s call it an inbox inquiry!
“I love your blog and read it everyday so when I had questions in regards to simple, healthy eating I thought about you. I’m kind of ignorant when it comes to food…I can follow a recipe but I’m not creative in the kitchen. So, when it comes to healthy eating…I feel overwhelmed. Do you recommend any recipe books/blogs/websites that speak to easy, organic, healthy eating? I would appreciate any help with this!“
hi ashley! thanks for the great question, i would love to share my go-to resources with you! here they are:
the kitchenist: written by a lovely gal named ele, this blog has a fresh from the farmers market feel and one beautifully photographed recipe after another.
roost blog: another blog full of eye candy and delicious recipes, one you’re sure to love!
the pioneer woman: a truly extensive library of online recipes from ree drummond.
kath eats: kath logs everything she eats and several recipes. i use her meals as inspiration when i need a quick idea for a health dinner.
simple vegetarian pleasures: with stained pages and doggie-eared corners, this is definitely my favorite cookbook. at first i was disappointed at the lack of pictures, but everything i’ve ever made from it has been absolutely amazing.
simply in season: with meals categorized by which veggies are in season, i find this the most helpful cookbook i own. it makes the task of buying and cooking seasonally a cinch!
everyday food: i also subscribe to martha stewart’s everyday food. i always find several new recipes to try every month, and also find most of them easy to adapt to a vegetarian diet.
so this is where you come in! do you have any advice? what are you favorite cookbooks, blogs and/or websites for easy, organic cooking? please share with us in the comment section!
