Both Bianca and I have endless lists of blogs that we read regularly and that inspire us daily. Check them out and share the love!
#1: How Sweet Eats. Jessica is hilarious. And the girl is on fire. Her cookbook, “Seriously Delish,” was released on Tuesday. She’s currently on a whirlwind book tour. Oh, and she’s also doing this all while pregnant. She’s a rockstar. Her blog is not a vegan blog, but many of the recipes can easily be altered. Oh, and did I mention she lives near me and every time I’m at our shared favorite grocery store I look for her because I just need to meet her and be her friend? I’m a creep. I hope she reads this.

#2: Skinnytaste. This is the blog that taught me that healthy food doesn’t have to just be salad and carrots. Again, not a vegan blog, but you can certainly make substitutions. Gina takes delicious recipes and lightens them up. Everything is good but her baked goods recipes are incredible. And if you use a Crock-Pot, she has tons of easy recipes for that!
Recommended post: Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies (Seriously, better than regular.)
#3: Cookie and Kate. These recipes, guys. These recipes are to die for. Every last one of them. They’re all vegetarian and most can easily be made vegan. I have never had a recipe from this blog turn out badly. Kate is the chef, while Cookie is the pup that catches the crumbs. You have to go meet her right now.

#4: Half Baked Harvest. Just look at the photography here, okay? I’m dying. Tieghan has been cooking since she was 15 and now cooks for a house full of siblings.

#5: Penny Pincher Fashion. Let’s move away from food for a bit and talk about fashion. I love clothes. But more than that, I love a good deal. You know those affordable fashion features in magazines where they say a $100 pair of jeans is “cheap.” Please. Do you know how many cardigans I could get on clearance at Target for that?! Enter Kimberly. She understands real affordability. Every day, she updates a list of current sales so you can always get the best deal. Plus, she once wrote a blog post just for me about affordable fall boots when I had almost given up on finding the perfect pair after months on the hunt. What more do you need?
