I’m so excited to introduce this fun new blog series!!! I’ve had the idea for a little while now to share some of my Instagram favourites with you… and well, I’ve decided to finally do it! I think it’s pretty safe to say that Instagram has become a daily part of so many peoples lives… and while I definitely believe in having a healthy social media balance, Instagram has introduced me to some of the most amazing, inspirational people and organizations that I wouldn’t have otherwise had the opportunity to connect with! Lately a lot of you have been curious as to what blogs and Instagram accounts I use for inspiration when it comes to healthy eating and getting creative in the kitchen, especially since I’ve made the decision to be more conscious when it comes to my animal consumption (more on that soon) SO… I thought it would be fitting to make the first round of Instagram favourites all about FOOD! These accounts are all ones that I scroll through and drool over daily. Take a peek and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
At one point or another you’ve probably heard me talk about my sweet cousin Tori’s blog, Fraiche Nutrition. Over the years I’ve shared some of my favourite recipes from Fraiche and to this day I continue to be inspired by Tori and her passion for creating beautiful, tasty dishes. She is a true talent in the kitchen (trust me, I’ve tried MANY recipes first hand) and not to mention a registered dietician so all of her recipes are full of wholesome, healthy ingredients. PLUS, she’s a mom (to my sweet little Charlie bear) so you’re sure to find some helpful tips on how to get your kids excited about healthy eating and getting them involved in kitchen. Go get inspired with recipes and more on Tori’s blog Fraiche Nutrition and follow along at @fraichenutrition.
Not only is Erin Ireland one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met but she is also sheer brilliance when it comes to the kitchen. Her compassion towards animals and mouth watering creations inspire me daily to educate myself on veganism and how I can make a difference… even if it’s in baby steps. With the most innovative and visually stunning recipes (like avocado coconut ice-cream that is so healthy you can eat it for breakfast), Erin will have you inspired to rethink the meat and load up on gorgeous, colourful veggies without disappointing your tastebuds. You can find all her recipes on her blog It’s To Die For and make sure to follow along at @erinireland.
A hub for all foodie lovers, Food52 literally has something for everyone!!! I fell in love with their Instagram account not only because of the beautiful food photography but because of their unique, culturally diverse assortment of recipes. I can’t scroll through their feed without taking a screenshot! I also love how their website has what they call the ‘Hotline’ where you can chat with other foodies and share your tips/tricks! Head over to Food52 and check it out for yourself and make sure to follow along at @food52.
Wright Kitchen is one of the coolest and most visually stunning accounts I’ve come across when it comes to food! I love how Brittany (the brains behind this genius account) is able to turn some of the simplest, every day food into colourful works of art. Her signature food gradients have to be my favourite, I love love love seeing the vibrant photos pop up on my feed. You can find all of her art on her website Wright Kitchen and don’t forget to follow @wrightkitchen to add a little more colour to your Instagram.
Besides having a great title Food and Wine is another one of my Instagram favourites that caters to all foodies. Sweet, savoury, healthy, not so healthy… they will have you drooling in no time! I could spend hours scrolling through their feed filling up my camera roll with screenshots of all their amazing recipes. Their website is also a favourite of mine. With recommendations on where to eat while travelling to tips on how to make the perfect cocktail you need to check it out! Head over to Food and Wine and following along at @foodandwine… just don’t blame me when 2 hours have gone by and you’re still on their page (guilty).
Between all of the sweet petite treats and an adorable pair of twins Freut Cake’s Instagram is on cuteness overload! I love love love the bright and cheerful aesthetic of Leah’s account, I’m always excited to see what she’s posting next! But be warned, her darling little posts will have your sweet tooth craving all the delicious baked goods she whips up… which isn’t a bad thing! Head over to Freut Cake and indulge a little just make sure you follow along at @freutcake first!
Oh She Glows is one of my most recent follows but is quickly becoming one of my absolute favourites! Angela’s blog is full of delicious, tastebud tingling recipes that will have you coming back for seconds… you’d never guess they are ALL vegan! And if you’re a giant smoothie lover like me just wait until you see how many different smoothie creations are on this blog. The Green Monster Smoothie has to be one of my favourites!
