Keeping Healthy, Getting StylishKeeping healthy getting stylish

‘Healthy living for lovers of clothes and cake’ - Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish is the creation of blogger and health coach Laura who started writing online as a way to keep track of her own health and weight. A regular in the top 10 lists, her honest and down to earth posts about everything from exercise to eating well on a budget are both inspirational and reassuring for those who don’t naturally gravitate towards green juice and yoga.

What we love...
The clean design, the budget tips and the inclusive approach.

What Keeping Healthy, Getting Stylish says...
''Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish follows my adventures in food, fitness and fashion, sharing whole food based recipes, product reviews and my personal accounts of pursuing a healthy happy life. Blog posts are a mix of recipes, my personal experiences and helpful posts on a range of issues and themes around healthy living, often chosen as topics based on feedback from the health coaching clients I support each day. I am passionate about promoting a positive body image and a balanced approach to health and fitness.''

The fastest growing health site since 2011, Greatist operates out of New York but the expertly written articles on health, fitness and happiness more than translate to a global audience. Reaching 4.5million health and fitness fans a month, Greatist has built a community of like-minded "clever, curious and passionate" people who already know how to use a kettle bell and aren’t afraid of kale.

What we love...
The new daily recipes and workouts to keep you motivated, the friendly and fun tone and the constant stream of well-researched and relevant content.

What Greatist says...
''Greatist is a health site unlike any other. We pride ourselves on creating some of the best content on the web, making sure everything we publish is accurate, informative, relatable, and fun. Not only is every fact cited by a scientific study and every article approved by our network of experts (chosen based on their prestigious degrees and professional experience), but everything is also written with a healthier perspective that appeals to everyone from novices to health nuts.''

Deliciously Ella

After being diagnosed with a rare illness, Ella Woodward started researching ways to ease her symptoms naturally, giving up meat, dairy, sugar, gluten and processed foods. As a result, she started recording her new healthy way of life online via beautiful images of her recipe creations and an accessible insight into her food philosophy. In addition Ella provides readers with reviews and videos to help them ‘clean up’ their own diets.

What we love…
The big, beautiful images, Ella’s food philosophy and the diverse and delicious sounding recipes.

What Deliciously Ella says…
''More than anything, Deliciously Ella is about promoting a healthy way of life and a positive attitude towards food. It’s about encouraging a new mindset towards cooking, one that is absolutely not about diet or deprivation, but about embracing pure, unprocessed ingredients and creating wonderfully delicious ways to eat all your favourite foods without compromising your health. It shows that eating well need not be boring or time consuming, but instead opens up a whole new world of goodness.''
