If speed, simplicity, and user experience are important to you in a food or lifestyle blog theme, look no further. Olive’s minimal but extremely flexible design will help ensure your content shines.
Whether you are just starting out with your own food or lifestyle blog or you need a fresh redesign on your existing site, this theme will give you a solid foundation in which to grow. Olive helps keep your site highly visual and minimizes the clutter so your visitors can find the recipes or info they are looking for quickly.
Powered by the Genesis Framework
This theme requires that you use the Genesis Framework and for good reason. With Genesis, you get a light-weight yet powerful theme framework as a layer between WordPress and your child theme. The Genesis Framework will help ensure your site is search engine optimized, has air-tight security, and always up-to-date on the latest coding standards.
Which recipe plugin do you recommend?
You’ll find example recipe cards throughout this demo that were crafted using the Cookbook plugin which gives you everything you need to showcase your recipes in a clean search engine friendly way. Not to mention it’s a piece of cake to use. While there are some free recipe plugins out there that do the job such as WP Recipe Maker, we highly recommend you invest in a premium recipe plugin like Cookbook if you are serious about your food blog.
Who do you recommend for hosting?
When it’s comes to featured, performance, support, and overall good value in web hosting, we recommend SiteGround hands down. They have an extremely affordable starter plan that is suitable for a single site and then they have plans where you can host multiple sites for a bit more. If you get a lot of traffic, we recommend you go with their higher tier shared account or a cloud account. Either way, you’ll get top-notch service and support for your food or lifestyle blog from SiteGround.
