Now that the days are getting colder and greyer, it’s our chance to bring joy and happiness back through colorful and tasty meals. As the seasons change, so do the options on farmer’s markets and in the produce isle – but I can assure you, there’s always plenty of amazing meal options throughout any time of the year.


I’ve really gotten into that cozy and grounding feeling when I was strolling through some of my favorite food blogs the other day. What I found was so incredibly beautiful and delicious that I wanted to share it with you guys!

The beautiful Kristy of Keepin’ It Kind doesn’t just provide stunning photographs, but her ideas and recipes are really mouth-watering. Especially when you “eat a rainbow”, you can make sure to get so many different nutrients and flavors! This is why I choose this winter bowl recipe here.

Rice stuffed squash

Our lovely friends over at peaceful dumpling not only have the cutest URL and logo, but have simple and insightful articles. I really like this savory squash dish because it’s incredibly healthy and filling! Check it out here.

Black Bean Pizza

What could be sweeter than a sweet potato soul? Jenné is the genius behind this amazing website and project, putting out delightful and heart-warming videos as well as delicious and healthy recipes. And because ‘tis the season: even more squash on our tables! But you wouldn’t suspect it on a pizza crust, especially if it’s made out of black beans. You can find it here.

Balsamic Grilled Pears

Heather from the YumUniverse brings along quite a unique energy – her colorful and rich website provides countless helpful information and invites you to celebrate a plant-inspired lifestyle with her.

Vegan Pumpkin Cashew Pudding

The lovely and inspiring Gena from the full helping never ceases to amaze us. Not only is her approach toward nutrition and self-nourishment so kind and very holistic, but her story is also similar to ours: She fell in love with raw foods and they changed her life a few years back. By finding her true essence, she found a way to nourish herself in the best ways she could on every level and ended up eating a highly nutritious, delicious and also convenient vegan diet. Her love for raw food hasn’t ended until that day, and even though she mostly posts cooked vegan goodness, she uses a lot of ideas from the raw food cuisine. Check out her tasty pudding here.

Pumpkin Cookies

6. No-Bake Pumpkin Butter Thumbprint Cookies

Last but definitely not least, I wanted to show you this rich and flavorful snack / dessert idea made by Renée. Her blog will frolic for food is already well-known for stunning photography, healthy plant-based recipes with a twist, and so much more. Check out her delicious cookies here.
