Top 8 Instagram Food Accounts to Follow

With health and fitness becoming more and more trendy, let’s take a look at all my favourite food inspiration accounts.

A lot of popular accounts focus on overindulgence ever since the first episode of “Epic Meal Time”. If you’re not familiar, you may know the expression: “Bacon Strips & Bacon Strips & Bacon Strips & Bacon Strips & Bacon Strips.” Nobody’s cheering: “Reasonable Portions & Reasonable Portions & Reasonable Portions & Reasonable Portions & Reasonable Portions”

Western civilization and government standards are straight up poison. I’m a huge fan of using Melissa Hartwig‘s Whole30 program to kickstart a lifestyle change. It’s the fastest most promising way of dropping bad habits to start making decisions that specifically feel good for your body when you’re done. Uuuuunfortunately, Whole30 was named the WORST diet of 2016 with paleo not too far behind.  Let me just… I can’t even type this.  The reason is that the American diet “should” consist of 45-65% carbohydrates according to the Institute of Medicine. The other reason is that it includes too much protein. If you’re doing paleo/primal/Whole30 by the rules, you will end up having about 20% animal protein and a whole bunch of plants and roots.
Anyway, I’m ranting for a reason. My top 10 list includes quite a bit of vegan accounts because Paleo loves vegetables too and to be honest, I don’t need to be inspired to barbecue some salmon, I’m already planning on it. Fall in love with vegetables and the colours of nature with these accounts! 😃

Plating has always been very difficult for me. My food photos looked like someone accidentally turned on their camera while walking through the ghetto. I love coming to this account to understand what makes a dish visually appealing. It’s the first sense you use, and then you smell, and then taste.

A really popular – one of the most popular – food accounts on Instagram. Not the healthiest but what they do is regram food posts you tag them in.  It is a great way to stay in the loop with what’s trending in the food world.

I love a vegan account that isn’t riddled with carbs. Gorgeous food from an admirable woman!

I went to high school with Ashley and we randomly ran into each other on Instagram 10 years later, now she’s a holistic nutritionist! Her recipes almost always include a small blurb about what those ingredients do for your body. Educational and delicious!

I want to be Andy when I grow up. Her plant based life in Hawaii is not only admirable but inspiring. Her children are the most beautiful mini souls I’ve ever seen.

One of the first Instagram accounts I ever followed when I started my page. Editor at The Feed Feed. Gorgeous photography.

Canadian. The most visually appealing platters. I wish I had a family of 6 to have a reason to make this much food. The homemade abundance is somehow tastefully gluttonous. I just invented a new oxymoron because I’ve never seen food this pretty in real life.

As someone that tried to keep a themed page once and only lasted for 2 posts, I have to say that overall, this is the most well thought-out page I’ve come across. Her theme has become her brand. Her avocado art is her signature.
