Food Blogs

 

Green Kitchen Stories – I have followed this blog for many years now, mostly for the amazing photos! A great variety of recipes too.

 

My New Roots – Another blog that I have followed for a long time. Sarah cooks extravagant plant based dishes.

 

My Darling Lemon Thyme – I came across Emma’s website when I was looking for ways I wanted my own food blog to look like. I since bought both her cook books and they are my most used ones ever!

Cashew-Kitchen – A blog who’s owner I connected with over on Instagram many years ago. Agnes now writes in Swedish but is an incredible photographer so her blog is worth visiting for that alone!

 

101 Cook Books – Heidi’s blog has been around for decades, and rightly so! She shares both creative and more simple recipes. All vegetarian.

Non-Diet Podcasts

 

Everybody Podcast – A podcast counteracting the pervasive myths and misconceptions about food, dieting and body image with hard science and engaging storytelling.

 

Positive Nutrition Podcast – A podcast with Paige Smathers RD covering a range of weight neutral and nutrition topics with guests.

Food Psych with Christy Harrison – A podcast about intuitive eating, Health at Every Size, and body liberation.

On Being with Krista Tippett – My personal favourite podcast for conversations that dive deep into our human experience. Very diverse with spirituality and humanity at the forefront.

Fat Activism / Mindful Eating / HAES etc.
