I have a morning schedule that I stick to pretty religiously. I wake up early, workout, eat breakfast, and then catch up on my favorite form of reading: food blogs. It may not seem like a super fun thing to do, read food blogs that is, but it is truly enjoyable. The blogs often feature new recipes, workout tips, comical anecdotes, and spectacular photography. Since I am the author of my own food blog, I find inspiration from these other blogs, ways to adapt recipes to college life, and healthy living tips. These are not your grandma’s blogs, many are written by young adults, fresh out of college. The way I see it, these blog authors are the big brothers and big sisters that I have never had. They are a means to prepare for the future without having to first undergo the torture of learning a life lesson, which is how life goes more often than not. It is time to change all preconceived notions regarding food and health blogs with my top five recommended blogs.
