Healthy Eating: My Favorite Healthy Food Blogs To Read for New Year's Inspiration and Motivation

Sigh, it’s January and that salad is definitely a sight for sore eyes. Or should I say puffy, tired eyes…you catch my drift.

This time of year there’s definitely a reoccurring message floating around with everyone I talk to…I overindulged during the holidays, I didn’t work out enough, I just don’t feel ‘good’. I too am feeling all of those things and have committed myself to cleaning up my diet and getting myself back on track. And I have to say, I’m pretty excited about it…(the power of positive thinking can be a good thing!).

Thankfully, there are so many sources of inspiration out there on the internet to help us buckle down and want to incorporate healthy eating habits back into our lives again. I am always surfing the blogs looking for new ideas, recipes and motivation from others to keep me going, because let’s be honest, it’s not easy to break bad holiday habits.

Here are some of my favorite healthy food blogs that I turn to when I need a little boost. Is your favorite on here? Please share who inspires you when you need it most!
