In the last few years, Instagram has skyrocketed in popularity and it’s a social media platform we love using at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. We adore the spontaneity, the stunning visuals and the glimpse into slices of other people’s lives (does that last one make us creepy?). If you’re looking for recipes and culinary nutrition inspiration, there’s no better place to find it than Instagram. Mouthwatering food photos, luscious ingredient shots, quick + simple recipes – Instagram has it all. That’s why we wanted to share our 50 Best Healthy Foodies on Instagram. Grab your phone and start following these folks today!
