For those of you who appreciate true nutrition, science and the beauty of unprocessed foods, Nutrition Stripped is the blog for you. The author, McKel, shares her passion for clean living with 100% vegan and gluten free recipes. Rather then “skinny recipes,” McKel, a registered dietitian, hones in on health. Don’t let this deter you though. Her smoothie bowls are to die for, and her creativity and ability to incorporate everyday and obscure ingredients reaches far beyond kale salad. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful photos?

Gourmet comfort food made with love in a tiny 42 square-foot NYC kitchen. What am I so smitten with? The breadth of recipe categories (quiche, stew, Jewish, Russian, wedding cake, the list goes on and on).
