When I first started my own journey towards healthier living, I found several websites and blogs that have inspired me. I have curated a list of blogs with great recipes, and also websites with fantastically written science-based and evidenced articles about health and nutrition. I’ve also included what workout guides I’ve used and would recommend if you’re looking to get more active!
I’ll be continuously adding more resources here as I go along!
Started by Dr Hazel Wallace, a medical doctor working in the NHS, the team at The Food Medic shares a variety of well-researched and evidenced articles about all aspects of health, as well as great recipes. The aim of The Food Medic is to bridge the gap between traditional medical advice and the latest thoughts and developments in nutrition and other areas of lifestyle. I love The Food Medic because of their educational articles that are all firmly rooted in science, but explained in a very understandable manner! I’ve tried a few of their recipes and they’re great too!
Sadia Badiei is a certified dietitian from Canada, currently working in the Netherlands. Sadia’s blog is full of great healthy and nourishing plant-based, vegan recipes! She writes well-evidenced nutrition articles as well. Her YouTube channel has plenty of videos breaking down different nutrition concepts and great meal prep ideas! Her channel and blog have been SO useful in my journey towards better health!
Some of my favourite recipes come from Dana at the Minimalist Baker! This blog is one of my go-tos when I’m in need of great recipes. They have many recipes that are super easy to make; all of them are 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare. Lots of meal-prep ideas here!
For my workouts, I am currently using Natacha’s CUT guide. I love Natacha’s workouts because there’s a great variation in the moves she uses in her guides, so that keeps it fun and interesting! You get to see great results too and you feel yourself getting stronger weekly. Her YouTube channel is full of really interesting videos about fitness, fitness experiments, and she also researches deeply into different health and fitness developments and trends, and breaks them down for you (which I really enjoy learning about too). I love her HOME guide which I use while I’m travelling – all you need are resistance bands, no weights required!
