Cooking for a family sometimes means coming up short in the “idea department.” Between food sensitivities, childhood obesity, anti-inflammatory diets and the idea that at least ONE meatless day per week is good for  humans AND the plant… Who can keep up???  And while you’re at it, check out the links on nutrition, creating a healthy environment and other ways to build value.


Here are a few blogs and sites I like for inspiration.


  • All Recipes: Searchable database with “personal recipe box” for saving, noting changes, etc. Also creates shopping lists!
  • Serious Eats: Good food, an online community, recipes, blogs and… fun.
  • The author calls this a “recipe journal.” I call it breathtakingly beautiful. (And the recipes focus on healthy, natural ingredients.)
  • Nutrition – Information about ‘what we eat and why’ continues to change. Here’s a place to check what you know.
  • The Paleo Mom is a scientist turned stay-at-home Mom.  She has a great web site along with books explaining the science behind the “paleo” diet and how to make modifications for various auto-immune illnesses.
  • 4-H – Take a closer look at 4-H and their new interactive website, for kids, adults, volunteers and staff.
  • Healthy Child is inspiring a movement that inspires parents to protect young children from harmful chemicals.
