Summer is coming.
This is great in a lot of ways, seeing as we virtually won’t need a jacket for four months and we can count on fresh strawberries to be at the grocery store. It also means swimsuit season. Did you just gasp? If you did, you shouldn’t. You look great just the way you are, we wouldn’t recommend changing a thing, and we think you should #werk it.
We believe that you should get healthy this time of year because it’s always good to set goals, stock up on those fresh spring veggies and fruits, lighten up our dishes, and feel good throughout the day. If you need a little help to put some spring in your step (get it—because it’s spring?), these 8 Instagram accounts will keep your feed flowing with healthy ideas and positive vibes.
Shut the Kale Up
This OC-based foodie is all about sharing all-natural, non-toxic foods. This means a lot of non-processed, real food. One of her favorite things? Drinking bone broth. Don’t get it twisted: if you’re not into that kinda thing, she also balances it out with things like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies with ghee (pictured above). She also shares good avocado toast ideas, how to incorporate adaptogens and collagen into your diet, and how to make bland things interesting. Plus, her stories of her son are totally adorable.

If you think being vegan is bland, personal chef Mary and her vegan account will prove you wrong. Case in point: buffalo wings, pigs-in-a-blanket, and coffee glazed donuts. Well, we know this isn’t the veggies and fruits we raved about earlier (you still gotta have your vices, right?), but there are plenty of chances to pack in your servings with dishes like black bean and chickpea golden ale chili and veggie tacos (pictured). It may not be the inspiration you’re looking for, but it just may turn you vegan.

Spouses Dana and John have three stipulations: 10 ingredients or less, one bowl/pot, or 30 minutes or less. On top of that, most of their recipes are plant-based and gluten-free, like we even notice: their rhubarb crumble bars and 7 layer Mexican dip are too busy occupying our thoughts.

Remember when your mom told you to not play with your food? Ida didn’t listen, and we’re so happy. Fulfilling every aesthetic person’s foodie dreams, the Norway-based foodie uses healthy materials such as radishes and citrus sea salt to make food art. It’s almost too pretty to eat—almost.

Keeping with the theme of eating pretty, Sarah is all about keeping it colorful. Case in point: her green smoothie bowl, toasted nori toasts, and her numerous avocado toast variations.

This British food blogger and author has a whopping one million followers on Instagram, and for good reason. Ella is a regular poster of what she is eating that day, including a baked sweet potato with a creamy tumeric sauce, and crispy avocado fries. Plus, she’s a total girl boss: she recently opened two delis in London and has her own line of protein balls.

This one hits close to home—literally. McKel Hill is a Nashville-based dietician and Clinical Nutrition Master’s degree holder, which means that everything she posts on her insta is accessible to you! We’re pretty happy about this, since her latest post is on raw plant-based donut holes. Also worth noting is the beetroot smoothie bowl.
