Our 5 Favourite Organic Food Blogs You Should Follow

September 8, 2021

Before we take a look at our favourite organic food blogs, let’s first understand what “organic” actually means. While regulations may vary from country to country, organic products are generally grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In the case of organic meat, dairy products and eggs, animals are usually fed only organic and GMO-free feed without antibiotics or hormones, and must be kept in appropriate living conditions, such as access to the outdoors.

What are the health benefits of organic food?

Eating organic food can have a positive impact on your mental and emotional health. Because organic foods have undergone minimal processing, they are usually fresher and therefore contain more nutritions and antioxidants. Organic food also contains fewer pesticides, preservatives and chemicals that can be harmful to your health.

In recent years, documentaries and stories of people who have improved their health through organic eating have inspired generations. Still, it’s often not easy to know where to start. Whether you want to learn how to cook healthy food at home quickly and/or on a budget, or you’re just curious about new recipes, we’ve rounded up our 5 favourite organic blogs for organic cooking at home.

1. The Minimalist Baker

Fancy quick, simple and healthy dishes that don’t require special ingredients or expensive equipment? Then this food blog is just right for you. All recipes at Minimalist Baker require 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, and 30 minutes max to prepare. Many of the recipes are plant-based, but the blog is not exclusively vegan, so all eaters are welcome to expect various sweet and savory dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We especially love the filter tool which makes it super easy to search for recipes by diet (e.g. vegan, gluten-free), cuisine (Italian inspired, Thai inspired), ingredients, and more. And once you’ve selected a recipe, you can also adjust the portion size, and the recipe’s measurements will automatically be adjusted as well. Amazing!
