Nutrition Blog Network
Bloggers: Registered Dietitians (RDs). FYI: A registered dietitian is a food and nutrition expert who has met the minimum academic and professional requirements to qualify for the credential "RD." In addition to RD credentialing, many states have regulatory laws for dietitians and nutrition practitioners. State requirements frequently are met through the same education and training required to become an RD. (Source: Eatright.org)
Blogging since: 2010
Theme: Nutrition information from a collection of more than 400 blogs written by RDs (only issue is that the sponsor is a food media relations firm, Weber Shandwick).
From the blog: "The goal is to provide a trusted destination for reliable, science-based nutrition information."

Blogger: Lori Lange, a former elementary school teacher who traded the classroom for the kitchen when she founded RecipeGirl.com in 2006.
Blogging since: 2006
Location: San Diego
Theme: 2,600 original and adapted recipes, all of which are not necessarily healthy (although, she does have categories for vegan recipes, weight watchers, low carb and low fat). What I like is her definitive guide to food blogging, found here.
From the blog: "Only RecipeGirl enters the recipes (her favorites). Users aren't allowed to submit recipes on their own (sorry), but you certainly can email Lori to tell her about something fabulous that you think she should know about. So you won't find 25 apple pie recipes and 18 versions of chicken parmesan. ? Just the best ones (as viewed by RecipeGirl and her readers) are posted."

Blogger: Kelly Mulcair, a registered nutritionist and recovering lawyer with a background in corporate and media law.
Blogging since: 2011
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Theme: Using whole ingredients that have been minimally processed and refined.
From the blog: "I focus on natural foods because they deliver the greatest concentration of nutrients for our bodies—vitamins, minerals, fiber, enzymes and antioxidants. These same foods also tend to be easier for our bodies to break down, digest and metabolize. For me, it's about keeping things as close to nature as possible while still delivering amazing flavor."
