Daily Distraction: Pinterest Food Boards
Posted by Katie Ostoich on March 26, 2012 at 12:41 PM
I love Pinterest. I could spend hours browsing all the beautiful pictures and staring at crafty things I will never be talented enough to actually make. One of my favorite practical uses of Pinterest (you mean pinning pictures of Louboutins to my “wish list” isn’t practical?) is food and recipe boards. Anything you could ever want or need a recipe for, you will find. Vegan? No problem. Gluten free? Absolutely! Healthy? So easy!
Here are 10 great boards that provide hours of delicious distraction!
1. Recipes to Tryby EatLiveRun
Jenna of the blog EatLiveRun not only serves up great recipes from her own site, but she delivers almost 1,000 pins of mouthwatering meal and dessert ideas. While not everything is healthy (dessert is her favorite meal of the day…) she believes you can have your cake and eat it too – in moderation.
2. Healthy Foodsby Ves151
You’ll find plenty of delicious healthy food inspiration on this board. In addition to power-packed meals and snacks, it includes out-of-the-box ideas for low-calorie desserts like this sweet and tasty alternative to traditional cheesecake.
4.Food That's Healthyby How Does She
No wonder this Pinterest board has so many followers! It’s packed full of colorful photos, nutritional charts, and lip-smacking lists. We were particularly intrigued by these homemade fruit roll-ups made with strawberries and cinnamon.
5.Healthy Food that Looks Goodby Angela Palmer
The mouthwatering images found here certainly live up to the name of this board, Healthy Food that Looks Good! In fact, this fluffy chocolate-y muffin is made with oats and Greek yogurt, clocking in at only 58 calories.
6.Healthy Foodby Barb Kelly
Smoothies, salads, soups—this Pinterest board offers it all. We’re totally copping this great idea for a green monster smoothie that blends strawberries, blueberries, peaches, fresh spinach, banana, and more.
7.Looks Deliciousby Susan Sweet
It’s true: Everything on this Pinterest board looks downright delicious—and nourishing too! This vegetarian curry is a great meal option, but you’ll be missing out if you don’t peruse the other food pins, including homemade lemon doughnuts and warm chicken salad.
8.Fresh Smoothiesby MyHealthyOC
An entire Pinterest board dedicated to healthy smoothies? Yes, please! This board is plastered with colorful images of delicious and nutritious smoothies, including this bright purple blackberry version that we plan on making right away.
9.Health & Fitnessby Samantha Eccles
This board has so much more than just scrumptious-looking recipes. It’s rich with cool eating tips, workout ideas, and other healthy inspirational pins that made us instant followers.
10.Recipes – Weight Watchersby Brandi Hoffman
Even if you’re not on the Weight Watchers plan, you’ll still benefit from following this Pinterest board. It gathers some of the best Weight Watchers meal and snack ideas into one place, including this low-cal pumpkin and cream bread that’s likely being repinned (again) right now!
