Let me be honest, I absolutely love FOOD!!! I love making it and eating it. I love trying new recipes and I always come back to make the ones my family enjoy.
For a long time I had this idea in my head that I needed to start creating my own recipes for my website and that I had to get a new camera to start taking like a million photos of these new recipes and how I make them. Every time I thought about creating new recipes for my blog, I would feel my chest tense up and I would have a mini panic attack because I just didn't want to do it. Not because I couldn't or because I was too lazy to do it, I just felt that I would rather spend my precious time doing other things that to me, are more important than writing a brand new recipe for a Green Smoothie.
Let's get serious for a moment. There are like a million green smoothie recipes all over the internet and I am sure there are some bad ones, but I also know that there are some AMAZING ones, so why should I go and re-invent the wheel? This mama ain't got no time for that ;-)
This brings me to the incredible revelation I had: I would not be writing my own recipes for this blog, but I would rather share all my favourite recipes from my favourite recipe writers, bloggers, cookbook authors, family and friends.
Tried and tested - from my family to yours! And I promise to never post a recipe that I have not personally made and do not absolutely love.
Life is all about balance, so I will share foods that will create balance in yours. Some healthy options, but also some naughty foods that you most definitely can enjoy on occasion. I want to inspire you to start cooking, and LOVING it! No looooong ingredient lists. The quicker and easier - the better!
So, let's get you off to a good start. Here are 6 of my favourite food blogs. I make most of my family recipes from these sites and I will be sharing my favourite recipes from each in the weeks to come, so please subscribe to my newsletter to stay up to date. I also have a couple of surprises in store for my subscribers, so don't forget to subscribe :-) (Subscription box is at the end of this post).
My Top 6 favourite food blogs:
I just LOVE these blogs but I just have to mention 4 more, just incase you want more inspiration:
- The Pioneer Woman - Another one of my favourite blogs and her recipes are always winners with my family
- Against All Grain - Paleo recipes. All her recipes are free of gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugars.
- Sprouted Kitchen - Not only is this site stunning to look at, but the food is simple, delicious and filled with fresh, whole foods.
- Half baked harvest - A good combination of healthy foods and comfort foods. Her photos will make you run to your kitchen to start cooking... and I mean RUN!
