1 - Gluten-Free on a Shoestring
Gluten-Free on a Shoestring is for families wanting to cook gluten-free without breaking the bank. The blog is run by Nicole Hunn. She says "Gluten-Free on a Shoestring helps make feeding your family a gluten-free diet enjoyable — and affordable." The intention of the blog is to skip making separate dishes – one with gluten and one gluten-free – because it's too expensive to feed your whole family gluten-free and instead whip up drool-worthy dishes having the neighbors begging for an invitation.
Nicole started the blog in 2009 after having been laid off as a lawyer working in New York. She chose to focus on the blog since her son had celiac disease, and the family was struggling to find affordable foods and easy recipes that the whole family could enjoy.
Nicole has since written five cookbooks. The website is an excellent resource with a recipe index, baking secrets to make that perfect gluten-free loaf, shopping and pantry guides, a gluten-free flour guide, and the 101 of a gluten-free diet. The professional pictures will have you stop whatever you're doing and bake yourself a gluten-free cake pronto. In short, a blog worth checking out if you're after affordable, simple recipes that keep your stomach happy!
2 - Elana's Pantry
Elana Amsterdam is the New York Times Bestselling author behind Elana's Pantry. She founded the blog in 2006 as your go-to place for easy, low-carb, gluten-free, and grain-free recipes.

Angela Liddon started Oh She Glows in 2008, with the intention to write about her recovery from an eating disorder, her journey back to health, and the amazing transformations possible through food. She started the blog while working as a researcher – a job she didn't enjoy nearly as much as writing for the blog. In the beginning, she put out 3 posts a day(!), and the blog quickly grew a dedicated readership all over the world.

A few years later, she was approached by a publisher – and in 2014 her first cookbook The Oh She Glows Cookbook was released and became a New York Times Bestseller.

4 - Living Healthy with Chocolate
Adriana Harlan is the woman behind the apron of Living Healthy with Chocolate. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she has charmed her audience with her accent.
Adriana moved to Hawaii in college to pursue her passion: surfing.

Since the doctors couldn't find a solution, she decided to take her health into her own hands. Her background in biology helped her research the origins of health issues and inflammation in the body. As a consequence, she took up a paleo diet in 2010.
In 2014, she had managed to get rid of all her health issues thanks to the dietary changes. Adriana decided to quit her full-time job as an oceanographer to teach people about the health gains from following a clean diet.
Her website is a great place to find healthy, gluten-free recipes that can further be filtered by labels like vegan, egg-free, dairy-free, and paleo.
