When The All-Day Energy Diet hit bookstore shelves mid-2014, it was already a certifiable bestseller. Within the first month of release the book shot to the top 10 of the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal book lists. Before I knew it, I was on The Dr. Oz Show, Underground Wellness, and The Bulletproof Podcast.  I knew the book delivered an important message about health, but seeing the response made me realize how vital it was.

Since the book release, I’ve had thousands of readers reach out. They love the book, but they want more. More recipes, to be exact. The All-Day Energy Diet comes with a delicious 7-Day eating plan. But that’s obviously just a start. Healthy eating isn’t a one-week venture. It’s the pursuit of a lifetime. And healthy, simple, delicious recipes are a essential part of making true health a reality.

With this in mind, I wanted to introduce some websites that are already making amazing, All-Day Energy Diet Approved recipes. Today we celebrate 9 of the best healthy food blogs on the web. Welcome to the 2015 All-Day Energy Diet Awards.

The All-Day Energy Diet delivers unparalleled tips on how to regain that child-like energy you once had.  With clarity and simplicity, the book helps you  understand how nutrition is connected to your energy. It explains why your energy is constantly sapped, why life feels overwhelming and exhausting,  and how to retool your diet so you can start living the life you deserve.

The basic eating principles of the All-Day Energy Diet include:

  • 80% Raw
  • Gluten-Free
  • No Sugar
  • No Dairy
  • No Processed Foods

Below you will find 9 food blogs with thousands of recipes that adhere largely to these principles. I’ve selected them for their simplicity, their creativity, and their overall dedication to healthy eating.

Each site has prepared something special for you today, too. They’ve rounded up their top recipes of 2014. Meals and snacks so healthy and delicious, you’ll be eating like a king until 2016.

1. Healthy, Happy Life

One of the most popular vegan blogs on the internet, Kathy Patalsky’s Healthy.Happy.Life is full of vibrant plant-based recipes. With lively photos and creative combinations, Healthy.Happy.Life contains thousands of recipes and ideas that make it easy to get more greens, eat more raw, and enjoy vegan food daily.



2. The Blender Babes

While working for a blender company, Tarashaun Hausner loved the healthy recipes but realized she needed a way to make them more interesting. So she started the Blender Babes, a site where you can learn to make quick, simple, whole food recipes while being tutored by one of her bikini clad “babes.” Her site is more than video tutorials. It’s a great resource for real food recipes which can be quickly whipped up in a blender. She’s got hundreds of smoothies, soups, and healthy desserts so you’ll never have to drink the same green smoothie twice.

She unlocks unfamiliar cooking techniques, ingredients, and flavor combinations, weaving clear instructions and explanations together with her own memories of her childhood in India. Second, Vijita has started her own low-carb diet regime. So many of her recipes aren’t just full of vegetables, they’re also conscientiously low-carb, gluten-free, and vegetarian.
