Focus Training’s Top 15 Health Food Blogs

One of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle is diet. No matter how many hours you spend pushing your clients in the gym, if their diet isn’t right, neither of you will see the desired results.

But as we all know, educating people about the types of food they should be eating, and how they should be preparing them, is no mean feat. Especially considering health advice seems to change daily.

You only need to think back to the latest news headlines about food; one-minute chocolate is bad - the next minute it has health benefits, and the same happens to all other food types too.

It’s exhausting!

As a personal trainer, keeping up with the latest trends and developments is all part of providing your clients with the best possible service.

Teaching your clients that eating healthy doesn’t have to be a chore is key in keeping them motivated. One way to do this is to provide them with high-quality recipes they can easily make themselves. So explore our top 15 health blogs below if you’re in need of some inspiration!

1. The Fit Fork

Jennifer loves healthy food, and this clearly shines through in her blog The Fit Fork. As someone who also works out, you can be sure Jennifer has all the advice needed to strike a balance between eating and exercising well.

On this blog, there is no boring healthy food. Instead, there are recipes filled with tantalising flavours that are going to make you wonder why anyone opted for less healthy alternatives in the first place.

Our favourites include this tasty tuna, lemon and avocado on toast, and we also have a fondness for her skinny cocktail alternative - the Skinny Blackberry Nectarine Margarita Smoothie.

2. Apple Of My Eye

If you’re looking for a blog filled with Californian optimism, then the Apple Of My Eye blog is the perfect place to discover an array of healthy recipes and lifestyle posts.

We like this one because it really captures the balance well between tasty treats and dishes that are good for you.

So check out this post for Rainbow Quinoa Power Salad, and for an occasional cheat meal, we recommend the Double Decker Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars.

3. Be Truly Nourished

Another blog brimming with healthy food tips is the Be Truly Nourished blog. Filled with recipes and handy hints on how to live a healthier lifestyle, we really appreciate what this blog brings to the table.

We especially like the post on making salsa, largely because we know a good salsa can pack a large variety of flavours whilst still remaining healthy! And we also enjoy the science element it brings in the Nutrition Decoded section too.
