Five Favorites Friday: Blogs

I thought having a Friday favorites would be fun!  I love it when people post favorite things.  It makes people aware of products, recipes, blogs, and it helps you get to know the blogger a little better.

What do you look for in a blog?

There are several things I look for:
· Clear pictures
· Consistent posting
· Knowledgeable on what they are blogging about (nutrition, exercise, photography...)
· Meal ideas
· A thorough about me page (I'm so nosy... it's one of the first pages I go to when I find a new blog)
· Similiar interests (paleo, kids, fitness, meal planning...)

These are the five blogs I read on a daily basis.  I love them for different reasons.

In no particular order:

1-  Kath Eats Real Food

2-  Clean Food Creative Fitness

3-  Primal Toad

4-  PaleOMG

5-  Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats

What are your five favorite blogs?
I'll let you know what my five favorites will be every Thursday.

Great idea for listing favorites, Kristen! I read a couple of those, but not all. I agree that it's fun to see what other people like to do/use/read/etc. It can open your eyes to new and different things! :) I linked to a post where I did this with Trader Joe's items a few months back.

Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness said...

Aww thanks so much for including me! I'm quite honored to be in the presence of Kath Eats, PaleOMG, and Your Blog! Three of my favorites :)

I like PaleoOMG but find her recipes too convoluted and complicated. I need really simple things.

I found an interesting take on the " 2 ingredient pancake"..same thing, only baked so less messy :

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

I agree with you! Her recipes can use way too many ingredients. Whenever I do make something of hers it is always amazing. Plus she is hilarious. I'll have to check out that pancake! Totally my thing :)

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

@Danielle @ Clean Food Creative FitnessYou are too sweet! I love your blog because you always make me think. Plus you have amazing recipes :)

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

Sweet and Savory Eats said...

Thanks so much for the shout out Kristen!!! I was completely shocked when I scrolled down and saw my blog! And you better believe that I read yours EVERYDAY as well! Thanks again!

I read some of your favorites too. I did a post with my favorite Paleo sites which is my #1 ranked post. I love finding new sites that help with my health journey. Top 5 list are some of my favorite to read because it lets me discover new sites!

I think this is a great idea for finding new blogs, thanks! I just randomly scroll through my reader each day, but I like Kath, Angela (ohsheglows), Healthy Diva Eats, Cotter Crunch, My Funny Little Life, Beautiful Struggle, Laura Lives Life, Allie's Life, Wayfaring Chocolate, yours of course, and more. I'll try to publish a similar post with LINKS!

Kerry @ Totes My Oats said...

Great idea for sharing great blogs out there!

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

@Mom on the Run Just checked out that post! Awesome! I'm so excited to read some of them :)

Brittany @ DulceVie said...

Thanks for sharing this :) I love finding new blogs to read! I totally agree with you about what you look for in a good blog. Having clear pictures is very important to me.

What a great idea! I definitely look for clear photography and good meal ideas too! It's what I strive to be more like.

Not sure of their exact URL (you can google) but I like :
- Paleoesque
- Healthy Tipping Point
- Carrots n' Cake
- Ingredients of a Fit Chick
- Paleo in Pdx
- Civilized Caveman (check out his banana bread...the newest one).
- PB fingers
- Yours :)

And more, but you will get annoyed by this novel...
