Instagram is one our favorite social media platforms of all time. It’s great for keeping up with friends, sharing successes (and failures), sparking creativity, and stalking love interests (whoops). While Instagram can indeed be a time sucker and comparison starter, I am a firm believer that the good outweighs its harm. One of these amazing benefits? Health inspiration. Not only can you find awesome workout routines and tips, but there is also a plethora of healthy recipes available at the double-tap of a screen. Need some help finding healthy Foodstagrams? Look no further. Here, I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite healthy food Instagram accounts. What are you waiting for!? Go follow them all!
1. Jeanine Donofrio of Love and Lemons, @loveandlemons
Why follow? Jeanine’s food photography is so gorgeous, it’ll almost make you forget how healthy her food is. Her recipes are veggie-based, but they’re a hit with carnivores too!
2. Kruti Shah, @_kruti
I love to enjoy salads for lunch, and I crave them everyday. (+ it’s an easy way to sneak in the greens!) They are quick to toss together & depending on the ingredients you choose, so flavorful! Today I added @cucinaandamore pesto quinoa, sautéed zucchini, grape tomatoes, + 1/2 avocado covered with hemp seeds over a bed of spinach (which I tossed in olive oil + lemon juice) . #eatprettywithkruti #eatpretty #inspirehealthy
Why follow? Not only are Kruti’s photos a minimalist’s dream, but she also manages to make fruits and veggies look SO fun and dynamic. Kruti’s also open about her past struggles with eating disorders — it’s refreshing to see someone so open about their evolving relationship with food (something we all struggle with from time to time!).
3. Samantha Eason, @sammyyeason
Why follow? Eggs on eggs on eggs! (She also has a really cute child, and she sometimes posts pictures of their adventures too!)
4. LeafTV, @leaftv
Why follow? LeafTV is fun and quirky, but that’s not why I love it. This account features how-to videos, basically negating any and all excuses we could possibly find to not try out their recipes.
5. Jeannette Ogden, @shutthekaleup
a cozy bowl for a cozy day. it’s been a little “chilly” (high 60’s isn’t chilly i know, but for socal in august, it’s chilly af) these past couple days and i’m loving it. bring on the FALL.. i’m ready! bowl details: steamed yam, @thecoconutcult probiotic coconut cream, @siggisdairy drinkable plain yogurt, @bobsredmill flax meal, bluebs, figs, cinnamon, peanut butter and two of my adaptogenic brownie bites all crumbled up i’m obsessed with these. i made a big batch of them last night cause zaYUM#shutthekaleup #realfood #cleaneats
Why follow? I follow Jeannette because I’m bound and determined to learn her secrets to eating chocolate AND maintaining the perfect set of abs. Jeannette’s recipes and tips are interspersed with workout videos and slice-of-life snapshots, which I think is great — it makes me feel like we’re friends!
6. Rachael DeVaux, @rachaelsgoodeats
This was the smoothie of my dreams tonight Cooled me off just a little in this heat . 2 cups coconut milk (I use @so_delicious) 1 scoop @rootznutrition banana nut paleo protein 1 tbsp ground flax 2 tbsp shredded coconut 1/3 avocado Handful ice Small piece of frozen banana Handful frozen spinach 1/3 cup frozen zucchini Directions: blend together and top with @thecoconutcult yogurt + @purely_elizabeth grainfree granola + cinnamon ‘rachaelsgoodeats’ for discount on @rootznutrition ✨
Why follow? Rachael is a registered dietician, but she still eats cheese and fries. How could I not love her!? She promotes a healthy balance in your diet, and she’s a whiz with an avocado!
7. Kelly LeVeque, @bewellbykelly
Why follow? I’ve talked before about how much I love Kelly’s cookbook, Body Love, but her Insta is just as great. I wish Kelly could follow me around and make every single meal for me — she makes every healthy meal look like a party. You’ll love her famous Fab Four smoothie recipes!
