Want to Launch a Successful Food Blog?

A good camera and great lighting are crucial, baking with bananas is a winner and posting simple, quick recipes is a sure fire way to get new followers.
Here are the top tips from some of London’s most ‘liked’ food bloggers.
Wild Heart Native Soul

What is your food philosophy?
I don’t follow any particular diet. I just eat what makes me feel good. I don’t eat refined sugar or processed food because I feel that if I avoid these I can ensure I’m filling up on good stuff.
I believe that if you stick to a healthy, pure and natural way of eating, and team it with exercise and mindful living, you can’t go far wrong.
What have been your most popular recipes/posts?
My banana bread has always been popular. It’s a real comfort food and helps people to not crave processed cakes and biscuits.
What ingredients are people most interested in now?
People seem to be really keen on adding extra ingredients to existing recipes for an extra hit of nutrients. Spinach, chia seeds and powders like spirulina and maca are great for this.
What are your top tips for food styling and photographs? Is this a skill anyone can learn?
Lighting is crucial to the shot. Try to use natural light where possible. I live in an old cottage where the lighting sometimes isn’t great, so I invested in a daylight lamp for duller days.
There are so many tutorials online that anyone can learn the basics. I think that a digital SLR camera is essential. You don’t need anything fancy. I’ve got a Canon EOS 1000D which does everything that I need.
Where do you find inspiration?
I read a number of cookbooks and food blogs. I don’t just limit my reading to healthy recipes though. My favorite challenge is to find a regular recipe I love and experiment with ways of making it clean and healthy.

The Goodness Guru 

What is your food philosophy?

Balance is my absolute mantra, and something I am passionate about sharing with my readers. Being healthy for me isn’t about deprivation or counting calories, but aiming to get everything in harmony (or as close to that as possible)!

So if I’ve had a few glasses of red wine with my friends, I’ll balance it out with a bowl of porridge and green smoothie the next day.

What have been your most popular recipes/posts?

I have a very sweet tooth, so it’s no surprise my pudding recipes are developing at twice the rate of my salads.

What ingredients are people most interested in now?

Excuse the pun but Kale is really Kale-ing it at the moment! People just go crazy for the stuff.

What are your top tips for food styling and photograph? Is this a skill anyone can learn?

This is an area of expertise I’m definitely still learning about. Sometimes I have to snap my porridge in five minutes before running out the door for a lecture so my pictures aren’t always masterpieces.

I like to keep it real to show that healthy eating is possible no matter what your lifestyle. One thing I have learnt however is the importance of good lighting. Colourful food in natural daylight can’t really go too wrong.

Where do you find inspiration?

Everywhere. I’m an explorer, whether that’s wondering the streets of places I’m familiar with, or travelling to exotic destinations, as long as you’ve got all your senses with you, you’re bound to stumble across something inspiring.

Natural Nomad

What is your food philosophy?

Personally, I try to eat foods that make me feel my best and are as close to their natural state as possible, but I certainly don’t do that all of the time.

Eating well is a personal thing – one plan won’t work for everyone. Although one thing I do encourage people to do, is to count chemicals rather than calories.

What have been your most popular recipes/posts?

Definitely my banana maca muffins – a batch never lasts long.

What ingredients are people most interested in now?

Grains are still a focal point, with more people seeking alternatives to conventional white bread and rice.

What are your top tips for food styling and photograph? Is this a skill anyone can learn?

Anyone can get into food photography. First, stay true to your own style. Don’t feel pressured to create photos with lots of props if you prefer minimalist shots. Second, keep food the central focus. And never underestimate the value of natural daylight!

Where do you find inspiration?

Mostly on Instagram. I follow a variety of accounts that post different recipes and have contrasting styles of photography. It’s the easiest way to keep up with current food trends.

The Yes Chef 

What is your food philosophy?

Food should be enjoyable and delicious. If ever in doubt make your plate colourful.
I also believe that being healthy is not a way of life, it’s a way to make your life better. Don’t deprive yourself of the things you love!

What have been your most popular recipes/posts?

Rawero ice cream cookie sandwiches.

What ingredients are people most interested in now?

What ever seems to be trending. Personally I’m rather a fan of Cavolo Nero, rather than kale.

What are your top tips for food styling and photograph? Is this a skill anyone can learn?

Using a good camera is the key

Where do you find inspiration?

Travel, experimenting and I also eat out at least three times a week so inspiration certainly comes from all over

Clean Eats Charlotte 

What is your food philosophy?
I try and focus on eating natural and unprocessed wholefoods. I avoid refined, processed foods and additives. It makes me feel my best.
What have been your most popular recipes/posts?
My most popular recipes tend to be my baking recipes. Quick, easy and healthy cookie recipes always go down well, especially the chocolate cookies.
What ingredients are people most interested in now?
I find that people are most interested in finding healthier alternatives to sugar, so they are looking for natural alternatives to cure their sweet tooth. I love using maple syrup and dates as a natural sweetener.
What are your top tips for food styling and photograph? Is this a skill anyone can learn?
I think if you love art and design then food styling and photography come naturally to you. Using interesting shapes, colours and angles allow anyone to make food look great. Play around with some different props and you’ll soon get the hang of it.
Where do you find inspiration?
I love taking inspiration from a texture, taste or appearance of a food that I have tried whilst travelling, then try and recreate it into a new recipe. It’s so much fun.
