Healthy Eating Foodie Community

Ever wonder what I look like sometimes when I blog? This is it. I'm in the "cottage" part of our home (the basement), by the fire, with my cat. Work MacBook Air on lap. A pretty typical photo, I'd say.

While I don't have any recipe to showcase at the moment, I thought I'd take a moment to showcase some of the blogs that I frequent, that I've found helpful along the way - and some that are just plain awesome and deserve a visit.

Not all are dairy, soy and sugar free, but all are healthy, eye-catching and/or inspiring! I've connected with a few really great people over Twitter (you know who you are) and they've already given me the push to keep going (even beyond what I've already improved...)with both the healthy eating goals and with the blogging. 

I may not have the largest audience, but I hope those that visit (my numbers tell me people actually do!) find this helpful, or at least entertaining. :) Connect with me on Twitter (@changingkitchen), start commenting on my posts and most of all: send me food ideas - or your fave recipes, gadgets, anything really! I use most ideas that people give me, so don't feel shunned if I haven't blogged about it. I am not blogging every single meal we eat, but I am going to try my best to keep this updated with something as much as I possibly can. I considered giving it up for awhile, but something has me going again (thank God!). Perhaps it was that I finally had a break from the busy 6 months (or year) that I've had planning our wedding, planning our month in Asia, moving into our first home and starting a new job - you know...nothing major. ;)

Well I've taken a break. I've had a breather. Now I'm back. So bring it. The ideas, the blogs, the banter.

Below are some of the blogs that I frequent often, or I follow on Twitter. Now you have their link and their twitter names, so find them! Some of them are pretty darn rad, if you ask me.

  7. Love this! Thanks so much for including me in your round up, lady, even if I'm not necessarily producing the same kinds of dishes as you and your other inspirational bloggers!

    Love that we were friends long before our food blogs ever came to be, love that *your* food blog inspired *my* food blog, and love that this is just another reason why we need to spend more time eating, creating, and learning together...
