8 Healthy Instagram Foodies We're Obsessed With
Instagram is rife with inspiration for your next outfit, workout, travel destination, and more, but one of our favourite things to find is culinary inspiration. From recipes to nutritional tips to stop-in-your-tracks beautiful photos, food accounts have taken things to the next level lately, and we are here for it.
To guide you in your food stalking, we polled a couple of our contributors and compiled our editors’ top picks for the very best food accounts on the ’gram. We also realise everyone’s diet is different, so our list includes plant-based chefs, gluten-free accounts, meat eaters, and more. No matter your journey, we’ve got you.
Read on for our list of the eight best food Instagram accounts. Get ready to follow them and then save approximately one billion recipes for future use (isn’t that the best new Instagram feature? We’re obsessed). Also, fair warning: Don’t read before mealtime—this list is guaranteed to make you ravenous.
“This plant-based Instagram account is one of the prettiest in my feed, not to mention she has the cutest little pup EVER! Her fruit-lined smoothie cups, stunning bowls, and creativity are an absolute delight that continues to inspire me not only to eat healthy but to eat beautifully.” — Geri Hirsch, wellness blogger and THE/THIRTY contributor
“Her recipes are out of this world. Not only do they taste amazing, but she keeps her ingredients to a minimum and the real food to a maximum. Most of her recipes happen to be gluten-free and plant-based, but they are good enough to please any meat eater too! (I’ve tested it).” — Chelsea Miller, model and THE/THIRTY contributor
No one does inspiring meal prep, gorgeous smoothie bowls, and drool-worthy recipes like Lee Tilghman. And while her main channel is beautiful, we also love how she keeps it real in her Insta stories, sharing her take on everything from PCOS-relieving recipes to disordered eating to social anxiety to coconut oil.
“One may argue that I’m a little biased on this one because we're pretty good friends, but can you blame me? Her feed is packed with the tastiest looking dishes, and she’s a queen at sharing recipes on Stories or Snapchat in a way that makes cooking feel way less intimidating.” — Geri Hirsch
Holistic nutritionist and author of the book Body Love, Kelly LeVeque is our go-to expert when it comes to nutrition questions and wholesome recipes. And, of course, we’re lucky enough to have her as a contributor on THE/THIRTY, so you can read her wisdom here regularly. Expect approachable and creative recipes, science-based tips, and the occasional celebrity client spotting on her Instagram.
“Barrett Prendergast is one of those girls that you can't help but love, and that’s reflected in her stunning feed, which is a combination of recipes, her gift box business, and adorable son, Costa. She and her son make smoothies together just about every morning, which is not only adorable but a great resource for endless smoothie inspiration. Besides smoothies, her general approach to cooking is effortless and easy, which are two things that I appreciate.” — Geri Hirsch
“Not only does she seem like the sweetest person on the planet, but she also takes a mean picture of her favorite recipes. She has shared some of her struggles with being raised plant-based, but her body functions better with some animal protein, and this is something I also struggle with. She is easy to relate to, and I specifically love her salmon recipes.” — Chelsea Miller
