I’ve been pretty busy lately, so I’ve only really had time to read other blogs, rather than keep up with my own. That being said (God, I hate it when I say that), I’d like to take this time to share with you some of the amazing blogs I follow daily. The women behind these blogs are the ultimate health advocates and I for one would be lost without them. So here they are, in no particular order:
PBFingers – ‘Peanut Butter Fingers began in September 2009 as a way to share recipes, exercise tips and random musings with my friends and family and has since grown into a blog that I update three times daily to document my life, fueled by (mostly) healthy food and fitness.
I love creating healthy meals and experimenting with new foods and flavors. I try to live a healthy, balanced life but also enjoy my favorite indulgences (like a peanut butter finger or two… or five ). This blog is constantly updated with my “healthified” versions of indulgent meals, sweaty workouts and quick and simple recipes.
Along with a focus on living an active and healthy life, my blog follows my daily adventures with my husband Ryan and our insane dog, Sadie.’
Peace, Love & Oats – This blog is written by the fabulous Katie, who lives a gluten-free life. Not only does she work her butt off to keep up with her love of running, but she’s also a law student. Wow! ‘I’ve started getting into trying out new recipes and sharing them with my friends. I thought starting this blog would be a great opportunity to share both the recipes I’ve been trying out, as well as the workouts and exercises that I do with my friends, and anyone else who finds my story interesting!’
Live & Love to Eat – ‘My blog will mostly focus on food instead of my personal life. I might mention personal events or friends/family, but that really isn’t what this blog is here for. I want to share my knowledge, ideas, and experiences that involve food, exercise, and living well. I am a registered dietitian but by no means am I the food police. I love to indulge in chocolate, frozen yogurt, and other forms of “junk” food on a regular basis.Everything in moderation!’
Chocolate Covered Katie – ‘This isn’t just any dessert blog: it’s the healthy-dessert blog! The recipes featured here are healthier versions of your favorite naughty treats: Cookie Dough Milkshakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, Brownie Batter Pancakes…
What will you find on this website?
Naughty treats that have been given a healthy spanking! My aim isn’t for people to say, “This is good… for ahealthy dessert.” I want them to say, “This is good. Period.”
For the actual recipes, see: CC Diet Recipes.
This site is for anyone who wants to be healthy but refuses to give up eating delicious desserts in the name of health. Happiness and health go hand-in-hand, and how can you be happy if you’re not eating what you truly desire? My favorite food is chocolate, and I eat it at least once a day. I’ve never been happier. Or healthier.’
Any Lucky Penny – This blog really makes me want to travel! ‘Most of my posts will be about baking/ food, interior design ideas, traveling, photography, and songs of the day. Well I hope you all enjoy my blog! I am excited to have my first blog and I hope you all enjoy it!’ Adriana, the author, has a serious eye for interior decorating and usually gives me some good ideas for my future home!
How Sweet It Is – ‘I’m Jessica and this is where I share my stuff. You will find a balance of healthy recipes, comfort food and indulgent desserts. I am madly, passionately, inexplicably in love with food. Bacon makes me beam. Chocolate makes me shout from the rooftops with joy. Vegetables and I are the best of frenemies. My perfect world would include none of them.
I have an unnatural obsession with James Taylor’s music. Contrary to popular belief, the name of this blog has nothing to do with the plethora of butter and sugar we’ve got going on – but because the song “How Sweet It Is” is constantly streaming in my mind. Sometimes it’s loud.’
Spoonful of Sugar Free – Alex is a sugar-free blogger who actually has an allergic reaction if she ingests this delicious, sweet substance. She loves to blog about living a sugar-free life, as well as sharing recipes that are good for you and delicious!
I find new blogs to read every day and find myself learning something new from each and every one of them. So thanks ladies for inspiring me to keep going. Keep it up!
My Healthy Tip of the Day: Eat breakfast. I can’t stress this enough!
