No sad desk lunches on Salad Pride's Instagram feed!

Each week, Earth Eats shares a comprehensive list of links to food media outlets, including but not limited to filmbooksphoto blogswebsitesvideo series, and podcasts.

We at Earth Eats try to eat our recommended daily dose of greens, if not from our own gardens than from the local farmers market. Our motto is you can never have too much fresh produce!

For this week’s installment in our food media series, we’ve listed food blog champions of the green goods. Not just green, though, for these recipes use just about every fruit, vegetable and legume you’ve ever heard named. Click your way through these links for fresh ideas.

Salad Pride

The blogger behind Salad Pride follows one rule: one new salad, every day. David Bez began preparing salads daily at the office with the mindset of eating healthier. Now he hopes to convince readers that salad can be a main dish, not just something for the side. No sad desk lunches here!

Golubka Kitchen

Born and raised in Russia, Anya Kassoff creates vegetable- and fruit-based dishes perfect for any meal of the day. You’ll be serving fresh, wholesome fruits and veggies for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert after viewing these vibrant, nourishing recipes.

Love & Lemons

Husband and wife team Jeanine and Jack of Love & Lemons share mostly vegetarian-vegan recipes, but their main goal is to show the versatility of vegetables through creative, colorful cooking. Sort recipes by season, meal type or ingredient. The couple loves travel, too; ingredients like nori and edamame, common in Japan, offer new flavors to your vegetable routine.

The Year in Food

Kimberly Hasselbrink, a San Francisco-based photographer whose blog was a Saveur finalist, celebrates the colors of the season with recipes that highlight gorgeous fruits and vegetables. Color studies of ingredients are unique inspirations on the blog, but check out her gorgeous Instagram for more ideas on colorful eating.

Green Kitchen Stories

Winners of Saveur’s Best Food Blog Awards, David, Luise and Elsa know their veggies. Recipes integrate superfoods with ingredients more common to any home cook. They showcase whole foods, good fats, fruits and plenty of vegetables. Come for the endless recipes, stay for the incredible food photography.

Sarah Ostaszewski
