My Top 5 Healthy Food Blogs

57 reviews / 4.9 average

For the last week, I've been hopping planes and carting around more than one painfully expensive suitcase with all my life packed up in it. And by all my life, I mean 23 T-shirts, 10 flip flops, and 2 pairs of shorts because appropriate, well-fitting shorts are insanely hard to find. Which could have something to do with this. Maybe.

While I'm trying to figure my new Filipino life out, I'm going to be introducing you to My Top 5 Healthy Food Blogs. I'm super excited to share these peeps with you, because honestly, they (and their healthy blogs) are amazing.

Check out their sites, follow them on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, and be happy about eating their fresh, healthy recipes! I will be sweating myself silly and eating fistfuls of leftover M&M's in between battles with my suitcase that has affectionately been named “The Big Kahuna”. But you'll be comfortable and healthy and that'll be really good.

I cannot end this post without giving you Alex and Sonja's recipe for Balsamic Strawberries with Greek Yogurt because it's pure healthy genius. It sounds weird, I know it sounds weird, but it's to die for.

When they made it for us last summer, I privately panicked. I'm more of a sugar and butter and flour girl. But then something amazing happened: I legitimately felt like I was eating dessert.

But it's yogurt and fruit. But it's dessert.

Balsamic Strawberries with Greek Yogurt


Balsamic Strawberries with Greek Yogurt - a favorite recipe of one of my favorite healthy food blogs, A Couple Cooks. A great healthy dessert!


  • 2 cups strawberries (1 pint)
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar
  • 15 ounces Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • A few mint leaves
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. For the berries: Wash the strawberries and slice them. In a small bowl, mix the berries with 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar. Let sit (macerate!) for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Prior to serving, add a few grinds of fresh pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt and about 2 tablespoons honey, or more or less to taste.
  3. Chiffonade a bit of fresh mint.
  4. To serve, place a dollop of the yogurt in a bowl. Top with berries and mint.

Follow, tweet, like, and make all their yummy food because they're awesome! All 5 of 'em!

Meanwhile, I'll be using my pocket dictionary to order 6 plates of mango peach pies from Jollibee (the Filipino equivalent to McDonald's), cause that's how they roll here. I'm think I'm going to get along just fine.

    healthy and yummy at the same time, nothing can beat that! Still, I miss your recipes. Everytime I check Foodgawker, I keep hoping to see a new recipe post from you. 🙂 By the way, I think I saw you and your husband at Ayala last Sunday. If I wasn’t mistaken, you were in a blue top and denim pants wearing sunglasses?
