A few weeks ago we posted a question on Facebook asking where you get your recipe inspiration. It was fun digging through the blogs that are new to us. Below is a handful of ideas that you sent in.
But we’d still like to know – where do you get your best recipes? What blogs make you want to get in the kitchen? Leave a note below and let us know about it.
Here’s a little inspiration sent in from the last time we asked:
What keeps this food blog going, is to prove, that any food choice, is not about giving up something, it is about finding something better.
Stalkerville is the new home for chowstalker and dessertstalker which are gluten-free, real food recipe sharing sites based on paleo principles. We combined the sites and re-launched them on a new domain to provide a platform for additional galleries, like gardenstalker that are interesting to those living a happy and healthy paleo-inspired lifestyle.
Good health, nutrition, energy, stress managing skills, ideal weight and effective exercise….it’s a common list of concerns for someone striving towards a healthy lifestyle. If you’re here, you are likely amongst those of us who aim to achieve those characteristics. But, if you’re anything like me or the women I have worked with, you also find yourself swimming upstream, against a list of priorities, roles and responsibilities that somehow take over your best intentions.
Oh She Glows
For the past 5 years, I’ve shared mouth-watering, energizing recipes that I eat on a daily basis as well as oodles of drool-worthy photographs. My goal is to inspire others to embrace more plant-based foods in their diet without feeling deprived. And yes, my recipes are great for meat-eaters and picky kids too. Most of my recipes are gluten-free and many are allergy-friendly.
My New Roots
A lot of people want to know “what I am” – vegetarian, vegan, raw foodist, fruitarian, macrobiotic…guess what? I am a person who eats!
My food philosophy is this: I hate labels. They stink. They force a person to define themselves with very rigid terms, and beat themselves up if they suddenly eat something that doesn’t fit that definition. I know I never want to have to label what “kind” of diet I subscribe to. Being dogmatic about anything, for me, just doesn’t work. Being flexible does.
I eat almost entirely organic food. My diet consists mainly (like, 99%) of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. I probably eat an egg once every couple weeks if the mood strikes me, and sometimes I will enjoy some goat or sheep dairy in very small amounts. You’ll even catch me nibbling on a freshly caught fish once or twice a year at our summerhouse (if I know where it came from, who caught it, and that it was killed humanely, I’m game. Why not? There is nothing like a fish straight out of the ocean!)
The only label I’ll slap on myself is “whole-food-lover”. Nothing makes me feel better, think better, and look better than whole foods! And the big bonus? I never count calories or worry about my weight because I know that if I eat this way, my body will be in a perfect state of balance and health, naturally.
Tell us, where do you get your best recipes? Leave a note below and we’ll share it with the Plan to Eat community.
