As I try to adopt a healthier lifestyle, I frequently turn to whole foods blogs as means to inspire creativity in the kitchen. In the recent years, whole foods bloggers have shown that healthy foods does not have to be tasteless or mundane. With that in mind, I love exploring whole foods blogs for tasty finds. Here are a few of my favorites.
When it comes to preparing whole natural foods in ways that even a novice cook could tackle, the creator behind Happyolks, Kelsey, is a pro. I particularly like the homie feel to this blog and how it leaves you eagerly waiting for the next recipe post. Happyolks is one of the many whole foods blogs that is worth checking out. Stop by happyolks.com to view Kelsy's recipes.
2. Edible Perspective
Although, this blog primarily features gluten-free and vegan recipes, you would never know it by the enticing food photography that accompanies each recipe. The voice behind the blog, Ashley, does a great job at thinking outside of the box when it comes to highlighting the ingredients in her recipes. From unique main courses like butternut squash and black bean enchiladas to creative nut butters like s'mores almond butter, this blog has it all. For more recipe ideas go to edibleperspective.com.
3. Love and Lemons
Love and Lemons is a great whole foods blog that is run by a husband and wife team. The site features great recipes using fresh and colorful produce at the peak of their season. I love how their bright and simple photography draws the reader's attention to the key ingredients used in each recipe. Some great eye catching dishes include cauliflower mac and cheese and matcha coconut latte. Visit Love and Lemons at loveandlemons.com.
4. Cookie and Kate
What's not to love about Cookie and Kate; a whole foods blog named after the creator Kate and her beloved dog, Cookie. When I am looking for easy and flavorful vegetarian dishes, Cookie and Kate is a go to site. Kate's focus on using a mix of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to create delicious vegetarian dishes in new and innovative ways is truly inspiring even for a non-vegetarian like myself. A couple of my favorite dishes by Kate is her sweet potato and black bean tacos with avocado-pepita dip and chai coconut ice cream. Checkout Cookie and Kate at cookieandkate.com.

However, the blog also features a great selection of meals like overnight chia oats with apple cinnamon puree and strawberry compote, avocado salsa quinoa salad, and so much.
