When it comes to healthy eating, it's easy to get stuck in a recipe rut. Anyone who has started a nutritious eating plan knows that for every colorful stir-fry we post, there were four straight nights of scrambled eggs that went unseen. That's why we turn to the below Instagram foodies for new ideas. From morning smoothies to taco night, they've got a unique spin on nutrition that will make meal prep actually exciting.
Check out our favorite follows below.
“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 and stunning bowls are an absolute delight that continues to inspire me not only to eat healthily but to eat beautifully.” — Geri Hirsch, wellness blogger
“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
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 biassed 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 ($13), Kelly LeVeque is our go-to expert when it comes to nutrition questions and wholesome recipes. Expect approachable and creative recipes, science-based tips, and the occasional celebrity client spotting on her Instagram.
“This woman has a little of everything. She is inspiring, keeps it real, and shares all the goods. By goods, I mean the best bowl combos and the thickest smoothies. She’s not afraid of good fats and eats for how she feels—and I’m feelin’ it.” — Chelsea Miller
“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
