This is the recipe site of Heidi Swanson, the author of Super Natural Cooking and Super Natural Every Day. Her recipes are all vegetarian, and I like that they rely heavily on veggies for flavor instead of sauces or condiments. I’ve made this Raw Tuscan Kale Salad from her site several times before; it’s a good dish to bring to a picnic!
This is the website of Cynthia Lair, author of Feeding the Whole Family. Cynthia was my Whole Foods Cooking instructor at Bastyr University. This site is great because every recipe has a video that goes along with it, just in case you need a demonstration!
This website has creative vegan and gluten-free recipes, along with really beautiful photography. It also has a lot of raw recipes, but they are not all uncooked. I have a lot of stone fruit right now, so I’m going to try these Roasted Plum and Rosemary Popsicles tonight!
This is the website of Becky Selengut, author of a cookbook by the same name as her site. Becky is also a culinary instructor at Bastyr (I see a theme here). If you’re intimidated by cooking or shopping for fish, get thee to this website. Becky has videos on all sorts of cooking techniques for seafood; they go step by step and are entertaining!
Green Kitchen Stories
This vegetarian website is authored by a married couple. They are coming out with their first cookbook in 2013. Perhaps you could try these Cinnamon Roasted Vegetables if you’re interested in adding healthy spices to your diet.
My Global Kitchens
This is the website of my friend Marilyn Weissman. She is a well-traveled lady who creates recipes inspired by her international travel. For an easy breakfast check out her simple Frittata recipe.
My New Roots
This vegetarian recipe blog (I’m not vegetarian, I just like vegetables!) is authored by Sarah Britton, a holistic nutritionist and chef. This is another great resource for recipes that are centered around fresh veggies. Since we’re knee-deep in squash season, maybe you could try her Summer Stuffed Patty Pans.
Post Punk Kitchen
This vegan website is authored by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, a punky chef who was born and raised in Brooklyn (my former city of residence). While her website does have a lot of dessert-focused baked goods, it also has a whole host of healthy main dishes and homemade condiments.
This gluten-free blog has a number of creative recipes that either use alternative grains or are totally grain-free. The author of this site also has some instructive videos for her recipes like this one for cabbage salad.
