About Healthy Aperture

Healthy Aperture is a unique image-based recipe search tool. It is the only site of its kind moderated by registered dietitians and solely focused on healthy food blogs.

Basically, we expose the best of what’s healthy to eat on the web.

As the only food blog photo sharing site founded and hosted by registered dietitians, Healthy Aperture prides itself on publishing only the finest food imagery created by bloggers of healthy food.  The site was founded by registered dietitians Regan Jones, and Janet Helm of Nutrition Unplugged.

Visitors to Healthy Aperture can browse recipes by page or Category. Clicking on an image title will provide visitors with additional information about the recipe, including Categories and sharing options. Clicking on the image transports visitors directly to the submitter’s blog where the full recipe can be found.

Brands and Agencies who would like to amplify their health, nutrition or food marketing campaigns through the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network, should email Regan[at]HealthyAperture[dot]com for Sponsorship information.
