Recently I talked about how to find ideas for meal planning, so you don’t get stuck in a rut. I had a reader ask if I’d share some of the blogs I use to find meal ideas.
I thought that was a great idea, so here goes!
Raising Healthy Eaters ~ Love this one. She doesn’t always post recipes, and you may have to dig around a bit, but she’s got some GREAT healthy recipes on this site.
Poor Girl Eats Well ~ The tagline says it all… How to Eat Ridiculously Well on a Minuscule Budget. Tons of fantastic recipes, and easy on the budget.
100 Days of Real Food ~ If you’re looking for great ideas for all the meals of your day that are healthy and “real” food (defined by this site as foods with less than 5 ingredients).. this is the jackpot. If you have school age kids her lunch posts are fantastic as well!
Good Life Eats ~ You can find just about any recipe you want on this site… huge archive of delicious recipes.
AllRecipes.com ~ This is one of my go to recipe resources. I love that almost all of the recipes have reviews and you can see what other people did/didn’t like about them and make changes accordingly. I get a LOT of my recipes from this site.
Recipes Girl ~ Another older site with a huge archive of delicious (and gorgeous) recipes.
For the Love of Cooking ~ A wide variety of recipes, from Greek to Camping.
Cooking With My Kid ~ This site has an extensive archive of kid (and grown up) friendly foods. I love to cook with my kiddo so I love how she incorporates cooking with the kids in all the recipes.
This Week for Dinner ~ An extensive archive of recipes, well organized by dish (main course, side dishes, sweet things etc). I recently made the Chickpea burgers from this site and they were delicious! I’m so glad I just remembered them because they’ll be perfect for sending in Hanna’s lunch box.
Good Cheap Eats ~ Extensive recipe archive, as well as link ups that will help you find even more great recipes.
I also use a few company websites to get some ideas for meals as well… these do not come as healthy as I’m trying to cook these days, but they are always good for ideas.
BettyCrocker.com ~ tons and tons of recipes. Go ahead and grab their email newsletter… they send out great recipes in it.
iVillage Food ~ their site can be a little difficult to navigate, but the newsletters are awesome. They send fantastic recipes in them. I save them in a folder in gmail and they’re always there when I need some ideas.
Well that should get you started… and I’ll leave you with one more tip.
Find a food blog that caters to the kind of food you like to eat.
Then… check out their “blogroll” or list of other bloggers they love.
Then check out the comments section of the blog, and click through on the name links in the comments.
This is how I found all these fantastic sites… just clicking around and looking for new blogs to follow.
