For many of us, healthy eating can seem like more trouble than it’s worth. Whole, organic and generally ‘healthy’ foods tend to cost more, the recipes seem less convenient and, in the end, is it even really that delicious?
Well, these food bloggers have made it their mission to take healthy eating to a whole new level.
With innovative recipes (that are, in fact, delicious), concrete advice and step-by-step meal prepping posts, these healthy food blogs are ideal for anyone wanting to change their eating habits and live a healthier, more holistic lifestyle without breaking the bank or taking up too much time.
But these bloggers are doing more than changing the food game. They are also making considerable income off of their full time blogging businesses.
We’ll go over how each of these healthy food blogs got started, how much the creators are making and, how they are making their money and, most importantly, how you can too!

Organize Yourself Skinny
Tammy shares that her own journey with weight loss motivated her to create her healthy eating based blog.
She explains how in college she had a flexible schedule that allowed her to be active. She recounts eating pasta at midnight without the worries of gaining weight.
However after she began working full-time, things started to shift.
“I put on 10 -15 pounds the first year of working full-time,” she says.
After becoming a mom her weight loss efforts became even more difficult, noting that she was attempting to balance her work life and home life on little to no sleep.
However, after coming across an online journal, she was able to see firsthand how her lifestyle was affecting her life and was ready for a change.
She knew this change would have to be slow and steady and that it wouldn’t happen overnight.
“I learned from past experiences that taking drastic measures or looking for quick fix gimmicks would only lead to failure in the long run.”
Out of this realization came a newfound motivation and, eventually, her blog on healthy eating.
What is ‘Organize Yourself Skinny?’
Organize Yourself Skinny is a healthy eating blog and a place for basic weight loss tips, meal prepping 101 and healthy recipes.
In addition to blog posts, Tammy also offer an e-course.
The Organize Yourself Skinny e-course is designed to help users get motivated about exercise, feel energized and focused and, ultimately, take control of their lives.
The e-course is made up of three modules:
- Laying the Foundation:
- The Mental Side of Weight
- Accountability Systems

While Tammy has obviously seen success in her blog and monetizing efforts, she is always willing to admit there is room to improve.
One area where she intends to spend more time is promotion.
While she’s proud of her e-book she notes that she’s unhappy with only making $737 off of it in one month, especially considering all the time and energy she put into it.
“The problem isn’t with the ebook,” she says. “It’s with my promotion.”
So how does she plan on remedying this?
With a set marketing strategy and more attention to her email list.
“I’m thinking about writing content (or even a course of sorts), that centers around my ebook, specifically for my email subscribers.”
Email lists are an important marketing tool for many bloggers and enable writers to let subscribers know when new content goes live. They are also a great way to inform readers about new product launches or subscriber-only deals.

As evident above, affiliate commissions play a major role in the success of Root + Revel. Affiliate links, or commissions, are arrangements in which an online merchant Website pays affiliate Websites a commission to send them traffic.
One of the fastest growing affiliate programs on the market is Amazon Associates and is free to use after approval.
Why is it so popular?
Well, when you use Amazon Associates you can still earn advertising fees on qualifying purchases, not just the specific products you advertise.
How much an affiliate makes depends on the prearranged agreement as well as the total overall number of people they send to the merchants site through a link or otherwise.
Another reason affiliates are a primary source of income for many bloggers is because there are so many affiliates out there.
What does this mean?
No matter the niche of your blog there is an affiliate for you and your community of readers.
Kate says it’s important to understand how much work goes into making a blog and that it’s more than just slapping words onto a page and pressing submit.
