Other “Real Food” Blogs

There are millions of blogs out there so last month I asked my facebook fans what other “real food” blogs they follow (and possibly even write themselves). Some of these blogs aren’t solely about real food, but they’re obviously doing something right to be inspiring others. So without further ado…here’s the list! And feel free to share any others in the comments below.

  1. This is real foods and then some. Not only eliminating processed foods but including and learning to prepare real foods in a traditonal way.

  2. Quite a few of those are not what you would count as real food. Lots of white sugar and white flour, etc.

  3. I’ve looked around at some of these other blogs but I think yours is the best, by far Lisa! Thanks for all of your research and info!! The only one I think you should list here also is Food Babe’s blog.

  4. As a doctor, and having worked as a certified personal trainer, nutritional consultant, and dancer, eating a healthy, balanced diet should be easy for me, right?

    Sadly, it’s not.

    In fact, not long after starting residency early in 2013, despite the health advice I was giving my patients almost every day, my own physical condition was starting to unravel. I knew better, but my diet consisted of crammed down food cart grease-bombs and cupcakes left unguarded at the nurses’ station. I hadn’t exercised in months. My previously roomy scrubs were shrinking by the day! Like for many of you, demands on my time, energy, and schedule had made “living healthy” seem almost impossible. I HAD to make a change!

    Unraveled Eats documents my attempt to overcome these obstacles and get back to eating what we all should–just simple, nutritious, unprocessed (and delicious!) food. It consists of photos and discussion of the choices I make each day. I hope my successes and failures, as well as tips and tricks I’ll share along the way, will encourage us all to live fuller, happier, and healthier lives–NO MATTER WHAT! Feel free to visit!

  5. 100 days of real food inspired my husband and me to switch to eating real food, and it’s been SO great! After following a few other blogs about the same content, I decided to start my own. It’s called Bowl of Delicious! and it’s theme is “real food for busy people.” Both my husband and I have very demanding jobs and have discovered a lot of tricks to eating/cooking real food even with a hectic lifestyle.

    I hope my blog can help other people make healthier choices amidst busy schedules. Please come by and visit at http://www.bowlofdelicious.com :-)

  6. I’ve just started my real food project-sharing menus, grocery lists, and recipes from my family kitchen. Many of my recipes are already real-food based, but now i am eliminating all highly processed foods.

  7. Thank you for the list, what a fantastic resource!

    With my family’s switch to real, unprocessed food I have lost 65 pounds and have never felt better! I had so many people asking what I was doing that I started my blog to talk about it: http://www.thatswhatieat.com

    Stop on by for recipes and weight loss tips using real food!

  8. Wow! Thanks for this awesome list! I’m always looking for brilliant recipe ideas for inspiration, if nothing else. This is great!

    My sons have a motley crew of food allergies and intolerances, and I blog about our experiences. Part of that is recipes; we are dairy, soy, wheat, egg, peanut and fructose free, so all of my recipes are pretty much real food with an allergy-free twist. If anyone needs those sort of recipes, please check out my blog: http://www.cradlerockingmama.com.

    Thanks again for this list!

  9. blackgirlsguidetoweightloss.com is awesome. she talks about emotional eating and even has a clean eating bootcamp. not to mention she teaches you how to eat clean on the cheap.

  10. I have a real food blog. I’ve been around for about 4 years. My blog is http://WholesomeMommy.com I am a blog about a REAL FAMILY {a busy one!} that cooks REAL FOOD {from scratch} and I keep it REAL SIMPLE {cause who has time for recipes with 15 ingredients that you have to go hunt for in some specialty shop?}.

  11. What a great post, I have so many new blogs to check out :D I’m over at http://omnomally.com.
    This coming year I’m setting up for lots of kitchen gardening, preserving, fermented foods and therefore lots more blog posts. So excited to see what everyone else is doing now and I have lots more blogs to subscribe to it seems!

  12. I love your site and what you promote! My blog focuses on real food, WHY to eat real food, as well as random posts about gardening and raising livestock (I keep chickens). But convincing parents to feed their kids real food is becoming more and more of my central mission. I would love to be added to this list, and would consider it a great honor!

  13. Lisa [With Style and Grace]

    I was just talking to Melissa from Fresh 20 and she mentioned you & your site – I can’t believe this is the first time I’m finding out about you. I love what you’re about and definitely following you now. Happy Monday!

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      So glad you left a comment…I just checked out your site and your pictures are GORGEOUS! I am following you on facebook now so I can keep up with your blog.

  14. What a great list! I will have to limit myself so that I don’t spend all night reading every blog. We, too, have our own blog, at mainstreethomestead.blogspot.com. We’re eating mostly Real, gardening, brewing, preserving, living on a budget, and raising two little babes.

  15. What a great list – thank you for putting all of these folks together on one page! I also blog about real food at Maoomba.com. As someone with numerous food sensitivities, my focus in on real foods that are naturally gluten and dairy free. I’d love to be added to your list. Thanks!

  16. Hi ya Lisa thanks so much for your blog I love it. I’ve slowly been working my way through your 100 day challenge. I’ve noticed that you buy your organic foods through stores is there a local community source you could tap into? I live in Idaho and there are several farmer share programs, where you buy a share say Monday morning and get a basket Saturday, you don’t necessarily know what you’re going to get buy it is 50/50 fruits and veggies there is an organic option for 10 more so an organic basket is $25 it usually is quite a good size (not sure if this one is available in your area but it might be worth checking out http://www.BountifulBaskets.org) also how about checking out local farmers groups? I know there are several here that you can buy a seasonal share, just some ideas. Thanks again for your blog it is so helpful!!!!!

    1. 100 Days of Real Food

      Yes, we have tried out a C.S.A. program through a local farm and we also go to our farmers’ market every single Saturday (bright and early!). I agree local is a great choice!

    2. I recently re discovered Bountiful baskets in our area and am amazed every week what you can get for what you pay, organic produce, breads, coconut oil, etc…they keep adding to their list of things available. I’m glad we moved to an area that has one. And anyone is welcome to start their own pick up location, though I’m not that ambitious just yet!

  17. I blog gluten, dairy, and soy free! We’re working our way (slowly, at times) toward more and more real food. I admittedly still use sugar in baking more often than not, things like that… but a work in progress is better than nothing, no?? :)

  18. Not to toot my own horn, but in my blog http://chattavore.com, I try to post mostly real food recipes. I do occasionly include processed foods if they are absolutely necessary for authenticity. I also review local restaurants, so it’s a locavore sort of thing too :)

  19. Great list of food blogs, they are ones I haven’t heard of before and will be checking these out. Like others I’m going to unashamedly give my blog a bit of a plug; its a gluten free blog, that provides information, recipes, restaurant reviews, and also looks at the link between autism and gf and caesin free diet. I love using fresh foods, to create, delicious gf meals. You know when you have created a good gf meal, when you get so many compliments and people don’t even know the food is gluten free! My blog is http://www.mishapsandmayhemofaglutenfreelife@blogspot.com

    I hope any new readers, coeliac, gluten intolerant or people who just want to make a lifestyle change, will find this blog helpful.

    I also have to give JJ and http://www.84thand3rd.com, a plug, she produces some amazing recipes and is also very willing to help others, particularly those starting out in the food blogging word.

    Another great blog is http://www.ledelicieux.com, she has a great range of vegatarian recipes. A blog to check out.

    Thanks again for the list and hope that people enjoy reading my blog, particularly coeliacs and gluten intolerant people. Also I hope you enjoy the other blogs I have mentioned.

    I have lots of reading ahead of me checking out these blogs!

  20. Wanted to add, she doesn’t use any “cream-of” soups in her recipes, so that instantly makes it more “real food” accessible.

  21. Thanks for posting all these additional resources. Now I also have much to read and catch up on to be in the know on the subject of Real Food. Another blog I particularly enjoy is A Year of Slow Cooking – http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

    It is not 100% completely “real” food, but mostly it is (or is easily adaptable) – and tells you how to make yoghurt in your crockpot. She has been doing this for almost 4 years, and I believe has a couple of cookbooks in print as well.

  22. This is a great list. I have to agree with some of the other mentions in the comments. Naturally Knocked Up is about fertility, but based on real foods. Donielle is a great resource. Another resourceful lady is JoAnna at Actual Organics. I do blog about real food, once I get back into the swing of blogging regularly. Great list and great addons in the comments!

  23. Oh, my goodness! What a fantastic list! I read several of these already, but it’s great to know of a few more.

    Here’s also a shameless plug for my own blog – Nourishing Joy. At it’s heart, it’s a real food blog, but I also write about sustainable living, natural homemaking, joyful parenting, and the like. :)

    Thanks again, both for your great blog and a great post!

  24. You HAVE to add DianasaurDishes.com she cooks amazing healthy food from scratch on a tight budget and teaches free classes to people like me on how to cook real food from the food bank and save money on food. I never even knew I could afford real food until I took her class. this is a great list I’m excited to find more food bloggers to follow.

  25. Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for including my site on your list!!! I am so honored! It really made my whole weekend! I am so excited about having new people to help get healthier and happier!!! Your blog here looks SO AMAZING — I want to read it “cover to cover” so to speak!! Your girls are darling, and you look like such a nice family! Oh, and to add to your wonderful collection is an awesome dessert site: http://www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com She is a doll, super talented and creative!! I know you’ll love it!

  26. THIS IS SO WONDERFUL. I do so much searching on the web for my weekly meal plan lineup. I get frustrated by how many recipes are included in posts that have processed foods, unrefined sugar and other ingredients which the body does not appreciate. This list gives me so many great sites to visit and learn about. Thanks so much. Love what you do as a blogger but also a Mom.

  27. Great list! But I can’t imagine The Healthy Foodie (thehealthyfoodie.net) not being on here. All her recipes are super healthy, most definitely “real food” and the recipes are delicious! She’s like a real food wizard.

  28. An excellent site is thepoorganiclife.com – A refreshing and funny take on how to eat whole foods on a budget, and beautiful posts on giving. Plus, Katrina is hilarious and down to earth!

  29. Another great blog, although she doesn’t blog every day, is 365 Days of Kale (http://www.365daysofkale.com/ ) Diana Dyer is a nutritionist who decided to change her diet to real foods after three bouts of cancer. She writes about nutrition, her organic farm (she and her husband grow about 60 varieties of garlic which she sells at the local market), and has some fabulous recipes – the garlic sweet potato kale soup is to die for!

  30. Thanks Lisa, you are my fave – but I also love reading Heavenly Homemakers as well as deliciously organic. Can’t wait to check out the rest of these on this list!

  31. Word of Wisdom Living by Skip Hellewell is fantastic and is where I got my start on this better, whole foods journey. I highly recommend it.

  32. I love Simple Bites & Simple Organic. I’m excited to check out the other blogs over the weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  33. I read another blog called “The Elliot Homestead”. It isn’t just real food but other homemade products as well. I love it!

  34. I post at http://lcrfood.blogspot.com/ about cooking for my toddler who has severe egg and nut allergies (and moderate allergies to most seeds). I try to use mostly real food, but if anyone has any experience with severe allergies or advice on eating well-balanced diets without eggs and nuts I would love the input!

  35. Great list thanks… There there is another too, although it is not just about food, when it talks food (at least once a week) it is always about REAL FOOD. SeeYourToes.com (shameless plug)

  36. Great list! I’m surprised Heavenly Homemakers didn’t get mentioned. And my FAVORITE real food blog, with several AMAZING ebooks is Modern Alternative Mama.
