Conscientious Eater A recipe blog written by Faith, an expat in China. Great workout-fueling recipe ideas. She came up with Madison’s very favorite oat milk recipe!

Food Politics (Marion Nestle) One of the premier U.S. food policy scholars around, Nestle’s work is essential to anyone who cares about food, health, and the environment. She reviews one book each week, and still posts regularly on other topics, so there is always plenty to learn from her blog! (And her books are fantastic too.)

Minimalist Baker (Dana Schultz) Some of the best-tasting and most efficient-to-make vegan and GF/whole grain recipes on the internet, IMHO. Madison’s go-to for WFPB baking recipes. Also advice for the beginning blogger/food photographer.

My Plant-Based Family (Holly Yzquierdo) Great meal planning ideas, very practical! Grocery shopping advice, ideas for cooking ahead, and all the ins-and-outs of feeding a family with a plant-based lifestyle.

No Meat Athlete (Matt Frazier) On being a distance running athlete and eating a whole foods, plant-based diet. Great ideas for oil-free recipes, workout-fueling recipes, and important health information for WFPB athletes.

Running on Real Food (Deryn) Great meal prep ideas, recipes, and advice for eating vegan as an athlete.
