Our aim is to have our first ezine published by March 15th.
Health Foodist would love to publish your well-written articles or videos on healthy food, healthy lifestyle choices, healthy exercise, and personal life-changing stories (your own). Below are our submission guidelines.
We are a non-paying market but are happy to include author bio and links with your articles.
Please read everything below and when you are ready to submit your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We support the following diets:
- Raw food
- Whole Food
- Transitioning to a healthy diet
All work must be your own. If you cite any studies or research, you must provide references to the work cited.
Any photos submitted with your work must be owned by you. We give no guarantee we will use your photos over ones we select ourselves.
We reserve the right to edit all copy. If anything major we will seek your approval before publishing.
As we are a new ezine, we need a lot of content to get started. We are looking specifically for articles in the following categories:
Studies on whole food based diets and:
- Heart Disease
- Fatty Liver
- Vascular Dementia
- Insulin Resistance
- Auto-Immune Disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Gluten Intolerance
These articles can show negative results on poor diets as well.
Recipes with photos
Recipes must include nutrient breakdown per serving and be accompanied by at least one photo of the actual product. You must own the rights to that photo.
- We prefer low fat, low sodium and low sugar recipes
- Recipe must include only whole foods
- Optional: State what the health benefits are of the recipe and whose health may benefit from it.
One of the things we would like to showcase is a recipe section for those cooking for loved ones who have dietary requirements different from others in the family and who are resistant to change. Think transitioning to health.
I remember the day Alissa Cohen was on the Today show with Katie Couric and offered her a green smoothie with cucumbers and kale, I think. Katie tried it but turned her nose up at it. Had she used strawberries and apples to hide the taste of the kale, Katie would have sold it.
Life Changing Stories
Did you change your life through healthy eating and exercise? We would love to publish your story. We love facts. If you have blood work to prove those changes that would be great, doctor notes, doctor quotes. And before and after photos.
Life Changing Stories should offer hope to others that changing how we eat and exercise we can make a huge difference in our lives.
No stories on weight loss surgery, drug therapy, packaged food diets, WW or alternative therapies. We want stories where what you ate or stopped eating brought you renewed health.
Not just about weight loss. We want to hear about pain relief, lowered blood sugar, vision improvement, reclaiming your life after years of being chair bound or depressed. We are especially interested in vascular changes from switching to a high percentage plant-based diet.
If you aren’t a good writer and have a story to tell, we will work with you to present your story.
We want articles on moderate types of exercise for those with health issues to start improving vascular health. No heavy weight lifting or cross fit types of programs, yet.
We would love videos of you showing others how to get started on a program that changed your life.
Walking programs, jogging programs, yoga, core strength, chair cardio, stair climbing races, obstacle courses anything that promotes a healthier lifestyle for those coming from a sedentary life.
Child Activities to Promote Healthy Eating and Exercise
We would love to hear how you got your children to start making healthy choices, especially if your child has health issues or is prone to weight gain.
Videos where your children and you are creating art with food or trying new recipes together or activities together would be great.
How To Article and Videos
Want to show others how to create a container garden. Have tips on how to get a winter garden to flourish. How to attract butterflies to your yard or grow an orchard. Anything that promotes outdoor activities or nature joys.
Humor is always appreciated. It must revolve around life change stories like pants falling off in public or after weight loss a kid asking where the baby is. Something humorous that will make others smile or laugh.
Political or Divisive Issues
We are not interested in publishing articles on political or highly divisive issues. This ezine is about how food and exercise can bring health to those seeking it.
Food as Religion
While articles on the benefits of particular diets are great. We will not accept anything that promotes one way of eating over another with intolerance or preaching ethics or morals.
All articles should be between 400 – 1000 words, be grammatically correct and free of typos. Antedotal, how-tos and recipes can be shorter.
Please insert article into your email and do not send as a docx file. All photos should be attached as files.
When your article is polished, send it and any photos or videos to: email@example.com
Include a short bio and a link to your blog or website. We validated all links to ensure they are appropriate to our audience.
In your email, you must state that you own all content to the article or video and any photos provided. Also, you must agree not to publish the article or video elsewhere until you have our decision. If your piece is published you must agree not to post it elsewhere for at least 6 months from the publication date. If at that time you want your article on your site, let us know and we will remove it from our site. Google does not like duplicate content across the web.
We reserve the right to decline an article at our discretion. Not all articles submitted will be accepted for publication, but they will be read. We will have three decisions. No thank you, we’re holding onto it for now, or your article will appear shortly. If we have suggestions to improve your article we will include them.
