Last month, I talked a bit about the in’s and out’s of making big dietary changes, including the emotional component of a switch.
Changing your diet can be tough. Maybe you’re going paleo, vegan, gluten-free, or whole food. Maybe you’re doing it for health reasons, for ethical reasons, or because you just need to mix it up. Regardless of the how and why, dietary changes are challenging.
I listed out a few of my favorite tips and reminders for making changes with ease, like focusing on what you can have, not what you can’t. I also wrote that you should read tons of cookbooks and blogs to ‘re-learn’ how to cook.
So, in the spirit of discovering new and wonderful cooking blogs, here are four of my favorite gluten-free recipe blogs. I love looking through these blogs when I’m short on dinner inspiration. Each of these blogs stands out from the crowd through beautiful photography and creative takes on classic dishes.
A well-written and beautifully photographed cooking and lifestyle blog, Gluten Free Girl is one of my favorites. Shauna has a tremendous summary of recipes that is organized by season and category, as well as numerous videos about cooking gluten-free. I really love her summary on what it’s like to go gluten-free. Oh, and the blog has given birth to three beautiful books.
While Angela isn’t gluten-free, many of her vegan recipes are, making Oh She Glows an awesome resource. I absolutely love her pumpkin pie recipe, as well as her date bars recipe. I really love her My Vegan Pantry post – I wish my pantry was that well organized (one day…). Each of Angela’s recipes are easily searchable and clearly labeled by categories like gluten-free or soy-free. She also has a book coming out soon – I’m excited!
If you like to look at pretty food (who doesn’t?!) than you will love Tartlette. Helene’s blog features many gluten-free recipes, but what I love most about Tartlette is that she’s a professional photographer who wrote the book (literally) on food photography – it’s called Plate to Pixel. She used to be a pastry chef at a French restaurant, so her recipes are definitely a cut above. If you’re looking for a fancy gluten-free dish to impress dinner guests… this is probably the blog! Also – she has a (FREE!) e-book called Demystifying Macarons, if you’re interested in trying your hand at real French macarons.
I’m new to this blog but really excited about it. Elana’s recipes are organized by different food sensitives (paleo, dairy-free, and – of course – gluten-free). She has an awesome list of FAQs about ingredients and lifestyle suggestions. She has three cookbooks, one of which is a New York Times best seller.
If you’re gluten-free, what’s your favorite resource for recipes? Or if you have another special need (like paleo or vegan or soy-free), what blogs or cookbooks do you love?

I don’t have any specific dietary restrictions but I do love “Oh She Glows” because all of her recipes look soooooo good, and taste delicious too!
