I’m not hugely into social media. In fact, I’ve never even had a facebook page (gasp!). But if there’s one thing I do love, its getting inspired by beautiful images. That’s why I love instagram (and that’s also why I have over 10,000 pins on Pinterest). #guilty
There are plenty of nutrition, health, and fitness accounts on instagram. But I’m not looking for images that promote fad diets, extreme exercise, or anything heavily processed. What I look for in an instagram account are beautiful images of farm-fresh produce, great scenery and photography, and inspiring quotes that remind me why I love my body and why I want to treat it with care. Confession: I also love design and lifestyle accounts. It’s good to not think about food all the time!
So here it goes… The 10 best instagram accounts to inspire healthy living:
@lululemon Staying fit has never looked so fun! Only lululemon could make sweat look fashionable. Now, if only I could afford the gear…
@hannadale The beautiful, balanced meals and the gorgeous European outdoor shots make me want to go on a hike, and take homemade, organic granola with me.
@greatist Healthy living at it’s greatest. These enticing images will inspire you to get fit and get moving.
@passportsandpancakes Gorgeous photography of whole, unprocessed foods, as well as other food and travel shots. Megan’s photos will inspire you to get into the kitchen and prepare something from scratch.
@unsqgreenmarket New York City. Farmers Markets. Could there be a sweeter combination?
@yogainspiration While I don’t practice yoga on a regular basis, this daily dose of yoga inspiration definitely makes me want to up my game.
@amy_stone It’s not a traditional pick for a healthy living blog, but I can’t help but be inspired by the gorgeous pics of life’s simple pleasures! While ice cream gets photographed a bit more frequently than I would like, what I really can’t stop drooling over are the pictures of fresh berries, ocean waves, and colorful hydrangeas.
@yogabeyond Great photos of people practicing yoga in scenic locations. I only wish the logo wasn’t there!
@chobani I’m a proponent of choosing organic and pasture raised dairy products, and unfortunately, Chobani doesn’t fit the bill. But nonetheless, their instagram account is awesome, filled with lovely pictures of colorful parfaits and other nutritious creations.
@bountyhuntervan This account is loaded with beautiful images of farm-fresh produce. Melissa can stimulate a vegetable craving in even the pickiest of eaters.
As you can see, these certainly aren’t the usual nutrition instagram suggestions. But these are the kinds of images that inspire me to live healthier, and I hope that they inspire you too. Now that you have a taste of my style, don’t forget to follow me on instagram as well! @kellytoupsrd
