Bloggers To Look Out For

BloggersMaria Abi Hanna and Nadine Tayara began their Instagram account on March 1st, 2015 and named it KeepEatReal. HEALTH spoke with the duo about food, health and blogging….

Q Of all the topics to blog about, why food? 

“We both grew up in a culture where food was the center of all occasions, outings and conversations. Being big foodies ourselves and  professional dietitians, blogging about all aspects of food and nutrition was just a natural choice for us.”

Q Your blog is healthy and wholesome; what inspired you towards that angle? 

“We always hear about people wanting to be on a diet and they’re always concerned with how it will affect their social life especially since the majority of our outings in Dubai revolve around food and drinks. We started our Instagram account to show people that living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated. Our blog offers people practical tips on healthy eating whether at home or out through our quick and easy recipes and delicious restaurant recommendations. We hope to create a community of healthy eaters in and around Dubai as we take them on a journey beyond nuts and berries.”

Q What’s the most rewarding aspect about blogging?

“We are blessed to see such positive feedback from our followers, families, and friends. This makes it all the more rewarding for us and pushes us to work even harder in creating a platform that encourages a realistic approach to health and fitness which revolves around moderation, balance, and variety when it comes to food, exercise, and nutrition.”

Q Where do you source your information, your recipes, and ideas from?

“Our philosophy about health and fitness is quite simple, we try to practice what we preach and make sure it’s always part of our lifestyle! We almost never follow a recipe, and try to come up with simple ideas and meals that are practical; we both read a lot and are always curious to try out new food ingredients, there are surely a few kitchen bloopers and that’s the fun part.”

Q Who are the bloggers you admire? 

“Deliciously Ella (Ella Woodward) is a foodie and blogger that we absolutely love and admire. Her blog is so informative and her recipes are great, wholesome, nutritious and quite easy to follow.”
