Default Healthy Food Blogs?

I'm looking for some ideas to mix up our normal food choices and thought it'd be nice to bookmark some food blogs. Most of the ones I found so far concentrate on some seriously scary looking desserts. I'm just looking for recipes that incorporate a lot of veggies and are tasty, any suggestions?????

Its not a food blog, but I've had great luck with Cooking Light magazine. they always include the nutritional information with their recipes. On their website you can search for recipes or for articles (I know they recently had some on how to include more veggies in your diet)

I really only read food blogs for the recipes so I can't vouch for the interest on another level. I mostly skip over the commentary

My new favorite - Peas and Thank You

Others I go to quite often:
Oh She Glows
Kath Eats Real Food
MediterAsian.com
101 Cookbooks (she is more complicated whole foods and not necessarily low-cal)
Kalyn's Kitchen

Oh and I agree about Cooking Light. Also Vegetarian Times has good recipes on their site.

Have fun!

I've recently discovered Skinny Taste. It's a pretty cool food blog. Each recipe comes with calorie count and macronutrient info as well. I also subscribe to Healthy Eating Blog, which is a general healthy eating blog by Health magazine.

Also, if you want to incorporate more veggies I recommend looking for vegan/vegetarian food blogs. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with any, otherwise I would recommend them to you.

ETA: I've just googled some vegetarian food blogs, they all look tasty awesome!
Vegan Yum Yum
Leslie Eats
Veggie Belly
Herbivoracious
Fat Free Vegan Kitchen

Lastly, the Food Network website has a healthy section: Healthy Eating

Yum, yum!

I like getting recipes from Cooking Light or Eating Well on their sites. I like some of the blogs already mentioned too - Kath Eats Real Food, Skinny Taste, Kalyn's Kitchen, and Oh She Glows.

I also like Danica's Daily - She does follow WW but I've followed the site even when not on WW just for some meal/snack ideas, and she posts nutritional info not just WW points when she shares a recipe.

Thanks everyone for all the ideas! I'm also looking for recipes and don't really care much about the talking part of the blog. I thought blogs would be a good ideas because they're continually posting new ideas but I'll definitely check out those magazines too.

Thanks so much and keep the ideas coming!
