19 Healthy Food Instagrammers to Follow
From Self Magazine
As someone who spends a lot of time looking for recipes as part of my job, I know how hard it can be to find ones that actually inspire you to cook. After a while, everything kind of starts to look the same—all those avocados and fried eggs sort of just blend together. The worst part? When I do find something that grabs my attention, it’s usually too complicated for me to want to cook right away. Call it a bad case of Internet food ennui.
When I’m really feeling bogged down by the sameness of so many online recipes, these 19 healthy food Instagram accounts are just the palate cleansers I need. They put simple, healthy, interesting recipes I would actually make right on the ‘gram, so I don’t even have to pull out my computer to look them up and cook them. Even if you’re not trying to find simple recipes, these accounts are still worth adding to your feed just for their gorgeous food photography. Get ready for swoon-worthy smoothie bowls, vibrant salads, healthy baked goods, and so much more.
