I don’t know the exact numbers, but something like a gazillion of you have asked me for a list of my favorite healthy food and science websites.
Back in the day I used to keep a running blogroll, but it took too much work to maintain and there are politics (and lots of email spam) involved in having a whole page of Summer Tomato dedicated to promoting other sites, so I decided to do away with it.
But questions keep coming from people wanting to know where I find all the stories for my Friday link love posts, my preferred alternative to a permanent blogroll. The unfortunate answer is that I subscribe to an extraordinary number of blogs (you’d probably cry if you saw what I go through every Thursday), and there are too many sites and I edit the list too often for it to be useful for most of you.
That said, I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t have my favorites.
Sadly one of those favorites, the news feed at Food52 (formerly Food News Journal), recently decided to hang up the towel and stopped sending out their daily food links. It was an amazing resource and I’m totally heartbroken. But as a result I’m also now looking for a few more excellent food and health news feeds to supplement my weekly reading, and I need your help.
Below I’ve shared my favorite sites and resources, in no particular order, that I rely on regularly for top-quality content. Though I subscribe to many more than are listed here (and I still get a lot of content from Twitter, Digg, etc.), these are the ones that consistently provide share-worthy content on the web and I would never post on Friday without flipping through them first. I respect these sites tremendously and am looking for more publications of this caliber to add to my collection.
If you think there’s anything I can’t live without, please leave it in the comments and I’ll check it out. Thanks in advance for your help!
