How to blog for healthy eating starts with your own beliefs and your own kitchen habits. What you put into your mouth and the way you prepare it can really have an impact on your health. It’s easy to slip into a pattern of eating unhealthy food because it’s so easy to just turn on the television or flip through a magazine to find something delicious that we can eat. We are surrounded by tasty foods that claim to be low in fat, but they really aren’t any healthier than the unhealthy options that are out there.
When you blog for healthy eating, it’s important to remember what you’re promoting. The same goes for those who market other people’s healthy recipes. Just because a recipe claims it is “gluten free” or “low calorie” doesn’t mean that it isn’t loaded with sugar, saturated fat and other unhealthy ingredients. It may sound hard to believe when you look at the label, but many labels on food products are not accurate and don’t tell you everything that you need to know.
The first step to turning your blog into a place where people are exposed to healthy recipes is to find recipes that are interesting to you and interesting to others. You should be able to think about a product and create a recipe based on what you love and what you find tasty as well. There is no point in creating healthy recipes that you don’t think are delicious.
The second step to turning your blog into a place where people are exposed to healthy recipes is to identify blogs that are related to your topic. You may already have many blogs dedicated to other plant-based recipes, such as vegetarian cooking, vegan cooking, fruit and vegetable recipes, and even cookbooks like the Cookbook of Living Foods. Find some of these blogs and incorporate their recipes into your own blog. This will allow you to reach a much larger audience. You can also join groups that are focused on healthy living.
You may be able to identify another blog that is similar to your own in focus or topic and link to them both. Then, add a comment on their blog linking to your healthy food recipe blog and include a link to your site as well. You should do this once every couple of days. The more comments you give the more likely someone will see your blog and add it to their list of healthy food blogs.
If you don’t feel comfortable writing about real food then you can always hire a writer who can write about your interest. Many professional chefs have blogs that they update regularly with information about new recipes and new trends in vegetarian cooking. If you decide to go this route then remember to check their credentials. Most people who are truly qualified to write about real food will be vegetarians (with no animal products in their diet).
