So, without further ado, here are the top nine healthy living bloggers you need to be following if you want to live your best life.

Whether you’re looking to lose weight or just live healthier, there’s a blogger for you:

1. Go Dairy Free >

Alisa Fleming, Founder and Chief Editor of GoDairyFree.org, has created the go-to resource for those looking to follow a healthy, dairy-free lifestyle. By providing an endless amount of valuable resources, from in-depth grocery guides and tips for eating out, to recipe lists and lactose intolerance tips, Alisa and her team of contributors provide readers with a foolproof foundation for living dairy free.

dairy freeFormally launched in 2005, Alisa wanted to, “share all of the information from my personal milk-free journey. Back then, online help for dairy-free living was difficult to find. I scoured studies, bought various books that touched on the topic, and started experimenting in the kitchen.” Years later, GoDairyFree.org has grown to provide over 3 million unique visitors per year with new recipes, product reviews, news and FAQ’s surrounding non-dairy living.

GoDairyFree.org goes above and beyond to, “cover the entire world of dairy-free living. This often includes vegans, gluten-free, lactose intolerance and multiple food allergies (soy, nuts, etc.) So, expect to see something for everyone on Go Dairy Free!” Alisa’s knowledge has expanded into a successful book release, titled Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, and Casein-Free Living. “I have been in awe at its success and the many kind emails from readers!”

If you’re looking for the leading blogger for information on a dairy-free diet, you need to check out GoDairyFree.org. Alisa and her team are in your corner to provide you with the information necessary to live a  dairy-free life!

2. Domesticate Me

When Serena, the blog’s founding foodie, announced to friends and family back in 2009 that she was heading to culinary school in Paris, they were shocked to say the least. That’s because at the time, the “domestically challenged” Serena was hardly the culinary connoisseur. “The only dish I’d successfully ‘cooked’ was a burnt grilled cheese,” the blogger admits to her readers.
“I honestly had zero desire to become a chef. I simply wanted to master some domestic skills, practice my French, and maybe find the perfect red lipstick—all while figuring out what to do with my life,” she confesses.

Fast forward two years, and the former kitchen klutz had stuck it out long enough to graduate from the esteemed Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris, and to discover her true passion: All things food. In the years that followed, Serena put her perfectly honed skills to work serving as a private chef, a culinary instructor, a freelance food blogger, a recipe developer and even a “nutritional spirit guide.”

And while she has enjoyed all of her adventures both in and out of the kitchen, Serena says that being a healthy living blogger has been her most rewarding undertaking to date. Lucky for us, because her laid back approach to cooking trickles down into every delicious recipe she posts.

“I truly believe that cooking should be accessible, experimental and most importantly, fun. Yes, culinary mishaps are bound to happen, but they’re par for the course (and they make for excellent stories at cocktail parties), so try to relax a little bit. If I can domesticate me, you can definitely domesticate you,” she says.

From Farro Salad with Butternut Squash, Walnuts and Cranberries, to Summer Cauliflower Rice Bowls with Bacon and Pesto, Serena’s got an easy-to-follow recipe for every meal occasion and palate. And the best part is, all of her recipes use nutritious, wholesome ingredients. So you can feel good about what you’re putting in your body.

3. Every Day Maven

For Seattle resident Alyssa, cooking is about so much more than food; it’s about bringing people together.

“One of my favorite childhood memories is having family dinner most nights at 6 p.m. sharp. It was taken really seriously, and we were all expected to be there–no excuses. If you were with a friend, there was always enough and my parents’ attitude was, ‘Don’t miss dinner, just bring your friend,’” the blogger shares in the “About” section of her blog.

Alyssa talks about how, as the years progressed, the dinner crowd continued to expand, and with each addition to the table came even more joy.

“I am a mom to two amazing boys–one in first grade and one toddler. One of my dreams is to have a huge oval farmhouse table that easily seats 12 to 15 to recreate this for my boys.”

With her blog, Alyssa has created a virtual dinner table, full of delicious comfort foods (think Fresh Tomato Pizza with Crushed Fennel and Goat Cheese and Italian Sausage Meatball Soup with Cabbage and White Beans), and certainly tons of joy for her readers. Her recipes aren’t complicated. They aren’t packed with processed foods and preservatives. And they’re void of artificial ingredients. Which means they’re great for anyone looking to live healthy or lose those extra pounds.

Plus, she keeps most of her recipes gluten-free to accommodate her older son’s gluten sensitivity. Many are also dairy-free since, as she says, “dairy hates me.” She’s made the site extra user-friendly by including little green allergy icons above each recipe so readers can quickly assess whether they can enjoy the meal or should move on to another. She’s also got a great recipes filter, that enables easy searching for everything from “30 minute meals” to “kid-friendly meals.”

As if the delicious recipes weren’t reason enough to check out Alyssa’s awesome blog, she’s also got a whole host of lifestyle articles, too. So if you need to know which cosmetics or kid care products are chemical-free, this blogger has got you covered there, too.

4. Picky Eater Blog 

Although healthy eating has been a way of life for blogger Anjali since childhood, she says her “whole wheat” world was thrown out of whack when she married a “white bread” guy.

Raised in what she describes as “the healthy-eating, organic-obsessed, farmer’s market-driven culture of the San Francisco Bay Area,” the board certified health coach, wife, mother and healthy food lover grew up munching on fresh fruits, veggies and nutritious, home-cooked meals. “I was raised to be ‘picky’ about what I put into my body and to eat junk food in moderation.”

Her husband, on the other hand, grew up in what she calls the “deep-dish pizza-loving suburbs of Chicago,” where he enjoyed a childhood full of ice cream and French fries.

The discrepancy in palates caused the Michigan resident some serious distress in the kitchen… to say the least. “When most people get married, they worry about things like money or in-laws. But when we got married, the question was: ‘What would the picky eater and her fast food husband eat for dinner?’”

Luckily, Anjali figured out a sensible solution. Her strategy? To cook healthy versions of the foods her husband likes best. “I started making healthier swaps in my husband’s diet, ‘sneaking’ in the good stuff without him noticing.”

Fast forward a few years, and it’s safe to say that strategy has worked well for the couple. “Slowly but surely, he began to identify different flavors like cumin, ginger and garlic, and he even started asking for vegetables in his dishes! He said it was because he learned that healthy food could taste good, which meant the world to me.”

Good news for Anjali, and good news for you, too. Because whether you prefer healthy, fresh ingredients, or you’re more of a fast food junkie, you can be confident that every recipe has been approved by someone with a similar preference. “My husband has been a great ‘guinea pig’ for testing out my recipes–and between his picky palate and my picky food preferences, I can pretty much guarantee that all of the recipes you will find here are delicious!”
Featuring palate-pleasers like Lemon Ginger Vegetable Stir Fry and French Toast Bread Pudding, Anjali’s blog is something of a hybrid between her and her husband; a place where
healthy meets hearty.

The cherry on top (of the delicious, guilt-free cake)? the blogger also offers healthy living tips, recipes for kids and babies, and so much more.

5. The Healthy Apple

To say that blogger Amie Valpone eats, sleeps and breathes healthy living is a serious understatement.

The Certified Holistic Health Counselor is a Functional Medicine Nutrition and Wellness expert, a healthy living columnist and a motivational speaker. Oh, and did we mention that she’s the best-selling author of Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body?

“It’s my passion to help struggling women and men find balance in their lives and with their health,” the blogger writes on her site.

That passion grew out of a personal experience that landed Amie in the hospital battling a serious, potentially fatal condition.

“I looked at the morphine dripping into my arm as I laid there half alive and promised myself that if I survived, I’d dedicate the rest of my life to inspiring others to get to the root cause of their health issues,” she says to her readers.

And that’s exactly what she did. After struggling through her illness and a host of other chronic conditions, Amie spent several years working with Functional/Integrative doctors and hands-on healers studying, learning, teaching and figuring out how to achieve optimum health.

“I created a plan for myself, which is what I currently use to help my clients get their health back, and healed myself in a way that no one thought of throughout my 10 year journey after visiting with hundreds of the best doctors in the world.”

Aimee’s take-charge approach to personal health is evident in every single post on her healthy living blog. From delicious recipes (10 Minute Fajitas, anyone?) to lifestyle tips, home remedies and playlists, Amie’s got suggestions to feed everything from your body to your mind and soul. So whether you’re looking to find a healthy appetizer recipe for your next get together, you just want to know which beauty products are void of nasty chemicals or you need help mastering meditation, The Healthy Apple blog has got you covered.

6. Low Carb Life

One look at Lynn Terry’s blog, and we were completely hooked. That’s because one of the first things we read was “Life is too short to be stuck in the kitchen all day!” We’ve always believed that the best diet is the one you’ll actually stick to. Time-consuming recipes with hard to find ingredients don’t lend themselves well to the “stick-to-it-ness” required to live healthy or lose weight. And it sounds like Lynn couldn’t agree more.

“I’m big on the Keep It Simple (KISS) concept, so you’ll find tons of easy, low carb ideas on my blog. No complicated recipes or weird products. I’m big on ‘real food’ and love anything with three ingredients or less,” she writes in the “Meet Lynn” section of her blog.

But that’s not the only thing we have in common with Lynn. The 40-something-year-old blogger understands what it’s like to struggle with her weight.

“Call it age, call it life, call it whatever you want–but I mysteriously started putting on weight in my 30s. I’m now in my early 40s… and I’m battling those same issues everyone else does with weight and health.”

And although Nutrisystem takes a balanced approach to nutrition, which includes eating good carbs in portions that make sense, we can appreciate Lynn’s commitment to the low carb diet… because it works for her. And we can definitely appreciate the hundreds of nutrient-packed recipes the blogger features on her site.

From low carb brownies and biscuits to full meals like chicken parm and stuffed mushrooms, her dishes are so filling and so delicious, we promise you won’t even miss the carby stuff.

But Lynn’s blog is about more than just recipes. It’s also got tons of tips to help keep her readers happy and healthy.

“This blog is where I share all my weird eating habits, my fun travel adventures, how I maintain the low-carb diet with a high-travel lifestyle, and everything I learn along the way. Including what to eat, where to eat, what to do when there’s nothing to eat but bread (lol) and all the funny stuff that happens in between…”

Lynn also provides tips for maintaining the low carb lifestyle outside of the home. “I eat out a lot, including fast food and take-out, and restaurants around the world. Follow along to discover creative substitutions and simple meal ideas.”

7. Low Carb Yum >

For Lisa MarcAurele, healthy, sugar-free, low carb eating is about so much more than losing weight; it’s about being genuinely healthy while enjoying the food you eat.

low carb“Healthy low carb eating has done much more for me than just keep the extra pounds off. My cholesterol levels and blood pressure are always better when I keep my carbs in check. I also rarely get sick, so I believe staying away from sugar has boosted my immune system,” the blogger shares in the “About” section of her blog.

As a full-time engineer with a busy family life, Lisa takes readers through quick and easy, sugar-free, low carb recipes that look (and taste) delicious. Lisa shares that some prior health conditions led her to the healthy, low carb lifestyle she lives today:

“I turned to low carb eating in 2001, shortly after having my thyroid irradiated for Graves disease. Prior to the treatment, I was used to eating anything I wanted since my metabolism was unusually high with an overactive thyroid gland. The radioactive iodine treatment caused my thyroid to become inactive and as a result, I gained 15 pounds in just a few weeks because I did not change my eating habits. Desperate to get back to my normal weight, I went on a restricted carb diet and quickly lost the extra weight. I continued watching my carb intake and my weight remained stable.”

Through easy-to-follow cooking steps and food photography that’ll make your mouth water, Lisa shows that healthy food doesn’t have to be riddled with sugar and processed ingredients to be tasty. With her blog, anyone can become a low carb, sugar-free chef with a book of recipes that will surely impress family and friends.

So, if you need to find some outstanding sugar-free, low carb recipes for your diet, give the blogger Low Carb Yum a read. And be sure to check out Lisa’s dessert recipes, she has got you covered there, too!

“I had an online magazine as a teenager, so I thought this blog would be a perfect way to return to my passion of creating online content, keep track of my recipes, and hopefully help others in the process. Wholesome Yum started in 2015 and has been my passion ever since.”

Maya’s food philosophy for Wholesome Yum is all about low carb and gluten-free recipes with simple, natural ingredients. The majority are keto-friendly, paleo inspired, with options for those on other diets like nut-free or vegetarian.

This is how my whole family eats, including my young children. What we put into our bodies plays such a huge role in our well-being.”

With easy-to-follow recipes that feature 10 ingredients or less, and with food photography that’ll make you want to get into the kitchen ASAP, Maya shows that healthy meals can be as simple or imaginative as you want. “I believe that almost any recipe can be converted into a healthier version and enjoy the challenge of doing so.
