My favorite vegetarian blogs and cookbooks

For the past four-plus years I’ve been maintaining this blog in my own little corner of the highly-populated blog universe. I remember back in 2008 a nutrition client of mine who wrote her own food blog was the one who inspired me to start mine, and I never looked back. Since then, my blogging has significantly been impacted by others people’s blogs. I love getting glimpses into others’ kitchen, creative recipe approaches, and cooking tips. As vegan and vegetarian diets are gaining in popularity, so are blogs that focus on plant-based recipes. And thank goodness! I am never at a loss for things to cook.

This month, for the Food Network’s Healthy Eats blog, I posted about my favorite vegan and vegetarian blogs and invite you to check them out.

And while I’m more of a blog reader than a cookbook reader when it comes to finding new recipes, I do have a few favorite vegan and vegetarian cookbooks to share as well, which you can find here.

I’m just getting back after a long weekend in Philly for the Academy’s Food and Nutrition Conference whirlwind. Back to regular cooking soon! I hope!

    Even though I’m not vegetarian, Kristen @ Oh My Veggies is one of my all-time fave blogs. I just *get* her food & love her approach to flavors, etc.

    Great seeing you *finally* this weekend!!

    Thanks again for the mention, Janel! I’m going to be writing about one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks next week–Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. Do you have that one? It’s one of my go-to cookbooks, especially in fall and winter. I’ve never made a recipe in there that we didn’t love!

    I’ve never heard of that book but I just got my first crockpot and I have no idea what to make in it. All of the recipes I find are for meaty stew! Have any good veg crockpot recipes?
