Looking for a food blog that’s mouth-watering, insightful, and all-things “sweet”? Caroline Kaufman, N10, has created a fun, easy-to-read blog that’s filled with cutting-edge nutrition information, healthy recipes, and beautiful photos.
Kaufman has a knack for taking sweet treats and changing the recipe a bit to make them healthier, but still delicious. In a recent post featuring gingerbread, she says:
The recipe is for a traditional gingerbread, made healthier with some whole wheat flour, canola oil, and applesauce to bump up fiber and take down saturated fat and cholesterol. The two teaspoons of ginger give it a spicy kick. This is not a sweet, sticky dessert cake. It’s much more about the molasses and spices.
Since 2008, Sweet Foodie has helped Kaufman build an online presence and attract attention to her insightful healthy eating tips. The blog has achieved a large readership, as well as wide acclaim–it recently won awards for Nutrition Expert Blog of the Year and Top Blog of the Year from Around the Plate.
Kaufman received her M.S. in Nutrition Communication from Tufts’ Friedman School and currently resides in San Francisco, where she’s a registered dietition and freelance writer for a variety of publications. Her work has been published in EatingWell, Real Simple, and NY Metro Parents, among other sources.
Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy graduate and dietitian Janel Ovrut (N’07) manages a website and blog that focuses on her love of good-tasting food that is healthy and can lead to better eating habits. Eat Well With Janel features everything from recipes to reviews and recommendations for products to try. Below is a quick recipe for an avocado bean spread that looks delicious.

Mash all ingredients together, spread on crusty bread, and enjoy! Watching baseball while you eat is optional.
