Food porn that's good for you

Eight sites showcasing healthy plates more irresistible than the season's most decadent offerings.

Between platters of cocktail party canapés and piles of bright, buttery cookies, there's nowhere to hide from indulgent food this month. But, thankfully, there are distractions. Some of the most tantalizing foodie feeds across social media and the world wide web are brimming with healthy meal inspiration. Here, eight sources worth following—and ogling. May they remind us that good-for-you food can be just as photogenic, sophisticated, and downright tasty as the other stuff this season.

Spanish translation? Cinnamon and vanilla. Our takeaway? Basque expat Aran Goyoaga is a master of all things sweet and well-spiced (she also happens to be totally gluten-free). Click through to her blog to search glistening pie crusts, rough-chopped crunchy winter salads, and color-splashed quinoa bowls by season, main ingredient, or course.

It’s not everyday that a food blogger cops to starting to eat meat again while contemplating the fate of their site. But Carey Nershi makes it all look so damn good, from DIY cocktail syrups to global fusion dishes using ingredients from her Burlington, Vermont homebase.

If photographer/stylist/cook Gentl's cult-beloved blog The Hungry Ghost is a high brow visual journal, her Instagram snaps are the gourmet Cliff’s Notes. From Roman sardines on parchment to video snippets of chanterelles being prepped for the stove, there’s always something jaw-droppingly artisanal to obsess over.

Try This: Tofu, Two Ways

Hubby-wife duo Sara and Will Forte shun spare plates and serving sanctions in favor of whole grains, healthy fats, and natural sugar alternatives. Nutty-but-still-fluffy pancakes, soba noodle bowls, and beet burgers have never looked better.

Playful Cooking site founder Kankana Saxena hooks followers with deceptively simple-looking overhead shots. Her lunch prep alone (ruby red-veined kale! pumpkin squash bursting with seeds!) will keep you clicking through to the big payoff: a smattering of south east Asian-flavored dishes.

Try This: Roasted Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Vivacious vegan cooking. Equally stunning outdoor photos. A healthy smattering of pet and #ThrowbackThursday images. Nutritionist Angela Liddon puts out recipes that you’d never guess were totally devoid of meat and dairy.

If sun-drenched snaps of peak-ripeness produce, mussel and champagne interludes, and leopard smoking slipper selfies are what you consider a good time, then Gourmette NYC's feed is a must. (Yes, Laura Loesch-Quintin is an open — and judicious — advocate of bread-and-butter and shoe porn shots, but pound-for-pound, she posts more CSA-friendly cooking tips than we've seen anywhere else. And she's got great shoes.)

She travels. She cooks. She shoots stunning dinner parties and plates for the likes of Kinfolk magazine. Brooklyn-based photographer Nicole Franzen spent 14 years cooking throughout the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean before taking her skills behind the camera. She's shot for every place you want to eat: namely, pubs like Bon Appetit and Conde Nast Traveller and brands from Morris Kitchen to Breslin at the Ace Hotel New York.
