Friday Five: 5 Food Blogs I Read

Today I'll be linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?, and Mar from Mar On The Run for their Friday Five Link up! Every Friday, these lovely ladies host a huge link-up with a different theme.  It's a perfect link-up for a lazy blogger like me.

This week we're chatting about blogs we read, and I decided to tell you about my favorite Food blogs. Sure, I mostly read running blogs, but there is no way I could narrow it down to just five. Plus I have developed legit friendships with running bloggers and I don't want to leave any of my friends out! These food blogs I'm going to tell you about are my go-to blogs for great, mostly healthy recipes! 

Iowa Girl Eats

This might be my absolute favorite food blog. Every recipe I have ever made from Kristin has turned out perfectly and tasted delicious. Plus the recipes are reasonably easy which is always a plus in my book. Kristin is also gluten free now, so if you are GF, I highly recommend you check her out! 

Budget Bytes

This is a blog I've been using for recipes for a long time now. Another favorite for easy cooking, I love how Beth lists approximate costs of each recipe. Clearly based on the blog title, these are recipes that don't break the bank and I appreciate that! 

How Sweet It Is

I'm not going to lie, part of the reason I love this blog is because of the photography.  Jessica is talented in the food photography department and it really draws me in. While some of her recipes might not be "healthy" or easy, every one I've ever made has been delicious. 

Running on Veggies

It doesn't hurt that she is Kara Goucher's food guru, but Lottie is one of my new favorites. Even though I'm not a vegetarian, I do prefer a plant based diet which is what Lottie focuses on with her recipes. As a bit of a warning, some ingredients are atypical and might require a visit to Whole Foods or some place like that, but I can guarantee it will be worth it!

Thug Kitchen

With a new cookbook, this blog is not updated frequently, but it was pretty much made for me: Delicious recipes with  "shits" and "fucks" thrown around like yours truly. I haven't gotten the cookbook yet, but I've heard it is amazing. 

Now it's your turn! Tell me your favorite Food Blog!
