Required skimming: nouveau healthy dining

Eat less, mostly plants

My New Roots Run by a “holistic nutritionist,” this blog posts inventive recipes, designed to impart a mostly plant-based kind of eating. There are a few health-ified classics, like these no-sugar-added raw brownies. (They don’t taste like brownies, but they’re delicious.)

My Life Runs On Food Writer Sanura Weathers wants to put the well balanced meal back on the table. It’s a decidedly home cooks sort of blog. Weathers isn’t an expert, but her eating ideas are well researched and personal.

101 Cookbooks Stunning photography; unprocessed ingredients. Anyone wanting to eat better should start with this site’s series on how to build a whole food pantry. (Or start with the poppy seed oatmeal cookies.)

Mince & Type The blog bills itself as the “place where design and food meet.” The reading experience is so immersive that, between the curried lentil dip and baked basil chard falafel, you’ll barely notice that you’re eating your vegetables.
