I am eternally grateful to the internet, as it has allowed me to discover new recipes and share my own experiments online. Without other food bloggers, my dietary transitions over the years would have been far more difficult.
Now that I am following a raw food diet, it’s wonderful to hear about other people’s experiences with raw food and learn delicious recipes, tips and tricks. Here are, in no particular order, a few of the sites I’ve been visiting regularly over the last few weeks:
Rawmazing. When I discovered this site, I couldn’t believe all of the delicious raw recipes available – for free! There’s an extensive list of droolworthy meals here, with gorgeous photos to match.
Choosing Raw. I’ve been following this blog for awhile now, and have already featured a number of Gena’s recipes on The Copycat Cook. Gena is a clinical nutritionist who recently decided to upgrade her education so she can enter medical school. So inspiring!
Almost Vegan. This is another site that’s long been a favourite in my Google Reader. Last fall, Amber temporarily moved to Oklahoma City to become certified as a raw food chef, and earlier this year she won the title of Hot Raw Chef for her irresistible raw caramel brownie recipe. Plus, she’s writing a cookbook!
Sketch-free Vegan Eating. I really admire this blog’s creativity and ingenuity with food. It’s written by twin sisters, whose ingredient combinations are ones that would never occur to me! The gals behind this blog also run the food sharing site Health Freak Food, which is a must-visit site full of photos and recipes for amazing, healthy food.
Pure2Raw. Also written by twins, this blog includes recipes, health information and it chronicles their fitness experiments. Plus, they operate a gluten-free and vegan bakery, which has some awesome-looking goodies.
What other blogs or websites are great resources for raw food?
This post is part of a month-long series about exploring the raw food lifestyle. With the help of holistic nutritionist Jennifer Trecartin, I’m doing a 28-day raw food healing challenge to improve my Crohn’s disease. At the end of the month, I hope to transition off my medication, which I have been taking since I was 18.
