Our Favorite Better-For-You Blogs

There are many reasons to love the internet. It keeps loved ones connected, it allows us to discover far away lands and learn new things from the comfort of our keyboards, and if you’re anything like us, it makes it easier to access the latest and greatest content from your favorite bloggers.

Whether you’re into water sports, party planning tips, yummy (and healthy) recipes, living with food allergies, decorating advice or any and everything in between; there’s likely a blog–or seven–covering your intended topic area. While perusing the world wide web, we’ve come across some blogs that are as sweet as candy and helpful to boot! There are so many bloggers that are parents and healthy living advocates that we love! This is a list of our favorite bloggers who help us live better-for-us lives!

Fork and Beans

Our favorite better for you bloggers

At Surf Sweets we pride ourselves on offering candy that is free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, and the top 10 allergens. We do this because we believe in providing yummy snack options that everyone can enjoy. Cara, of Fork and Beans, is also dedicated to supplying wholesome and delicious options to individuals living with dietary restrictions. Cara says it best in her own words, “Fork and Beans is a site where people with dietary restrictions will not only feel normal, but find that eating without certain ingredients can still be good“. With recipes like Lemony Hummus Crab Dip, we think shes succeeded in making allergen friendly food fun!


Tracy Bush is a renaissance woman. An author, blogger, food allergy consultant, self-professed “kitchen geek“ and more, she brings a sense of humor and extensive food knowledge to her ever updated blog roll. If you’re in need of allergy friendly food product reviews, recipes and advice, Tracy is your gal!
