So much of my recipe inspiration comes from food instagram accounts and blogs. In fact, according to Well + Good, Instagram may just be making us healthier by fostering a strong sense of community full of like-minded foodies that make healthy recipe hunting a bit easier.
“Instead of clocking an hour on a recipe site searching for something (anything!) that looks good for dinner, on social media, the ideas come to you. Searching a hashtag, getting inspired by the so-often ridiculously gorgeous photos, and seeing if you have the ingredients lying around in your fridge, is simple. Period.”
Since starting one taste at a time, I have found myself stepping far outside of my culinary comfort zone. Whether it be trying new ingredients or feeling confident enough to put my own spin on certain recipes, this social media platform has changed the way I think about what I’m putting into my body.
In recognition of all the people out there embracing real food and sharing their inspiration on social media to get the creative juices (pun intended) flowing on an even larger scale, I decided to put together a list of my favorite food instagram accounts/blogs. Check them out, and maybe give them a little social media love while you’re at it.
