To stay inspired to create new recipes and experiment with ingredients in a different way I also draw inspiration from other foodies. These five blogs have inspired me endlessly and I want to introduce you to them. All of them use vegetables and whole foods as the stars of their recipes which I love.
Introducing Sadia, a qualified dietician and Canadian living in Holland. Her Youtube videos are so inspiring and range from meal prep, kitchen hacks and how to set a morning routine. Her recipes are easy to follow, wholesome, vegan and the styling and props are just jaw-dropping. Her blog is full of free downloads, recipes, and resources. Follow her on Instagram and Youtube. My favourite recipe so far is this chickpea salad filling that is amazing on a sandwich or on crackers. Seriously inspired by her!!
I have such a soft spot for Ella, she lives in London and became a gluten-free vegan in 2012 after becoming ill from an autoimmune disease. She managed to completely heal and started her blog as a way to document her journey. She and her husband have since opened a restaurant and launched a range of products including; granolas, freezer meals and snacks to make eating veggies and wholesome food more accessible. She has an app, a wonderful podcast about everything health-related, wrote 6 recipe books and shares loads of free recipes on her website and Youtube channel. My favourite recipe is this Sri lankan curry, I also use it in my basic cooking course.
Minimalist baker Is a mega food blog created by Dana Shultz from America.
The recipes she shares require 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare and are suitable for most diets. She covers so many interesting topics and shares recipes every day on social media. I really like the quick videos on how to DIY your own vanilla, different kinds of milk from seeds and nuts, dressings and sauces. Follow her on Instagram and Youtube. I really want to try this apple carrot snack cake
A feast for the eyes vegetarian blog created by duo Luise Vindahl and David Frenkiel from Sweden. They have produced five recipe books and also have 2 apps that have very good ratings. Their use of vegetables in recipes are genius and most recipes are gluten-free. Follow them on Instagram.I have tried the potato picnic bread and thought it was so clever. When I made it a second time I added the sweetcorn and grated cheese for a children’s cooking class.
A wonderful blog and recipe book created by Mandy Sacher, Child Nutritionist in Australia to help families eat better. Learn how to make frosting with cashew nuts, or biscuits with black beans and how to include vegetables in almost any recipes. Her recipes are gluten and dairy-free. Follow her on Instagram. My personal favourite is the black bean brownies that I have made a gazillion times.
Hope you check them out, let me know who is your favourite foodies.
