When I’m deciding on new things to cook or figuring out what I should be buying, one of the first places I look is Pinterest. The food photography on there is amazing and enough to make anyone’s stomach rumble. The recipes behind the pictures are normally linked but sometimes I just like to look.
Another procrastination source for me is YouTube videos and recently I have watched tons of ‘What I ate today’ style videos. My favourites are from Niomi Smart, purely because her plant-based diet is interesting to learn about and seeing how amazing she looks is enough inspiration for anyone. Also check out Lily Melrose- she follows a vegan diet and as per usual, is very opinionated about it.
Probably an obvious one but; food blogs. I love reading the blogs written by people that follow diets I don’t know much about, such as Deliciously Ella who has a seemingly very restrictive diet but then never fails to come up with amazing creations. I don’t personally cut out even half the things she does but looking at lots of different blogs means that I can to combine ideas from them all and translate it into something I would actually follow myself. Another person that gets a mention every time I talk about food is Madeleine Shaw. I could listen to her voice all day and I find her lifestyle so inspiring. As with most of the food bloggers in the media spotlight, the recipes these two put out often contain rather obscure/ expensive ingredients so it’s always worth checking out alternatives before running off to a health foods store.
