Healthy Cooking Shows
I don’t know about you, but I did not grow up learning how to make healthy recipes. In fact, I didn’t even really know how to boil water until I was about 30 years old.
I ate a lot of processed foods and restaurant meals until I ended up with a bunch of health problems (learn more about my clean eating before and after journey). Once I started studying nutrition and realized I needed to cook more at home, I started watching the Food Network and reading cookbooks.
Then, starting around 2008, I started reading food blogs and then started my own food blog in 2009.
Since then, I’ve really enjoyed watching YouTube for most of my cooking tutorials. I find the less scripted and more realistic portrayal of meal preparation to be really approachable and inspiring for my own real food cooking journey.
So, I’m really excited to share this list of the Best Healthy YouTube Cooking Channels with you! Whether you’re just getting started learning how to eat clean and prepare a real foods or you are a veteran chef, I think you’ll find at least a few new channels to subscribe to and binge on (no pun intended).
