5 Healthy Foodstagrams That You Should Be Following

Sure, you probably should have skipped the 2 a.m. pizza, and you didn't need that bowl of ice cream after dinner. But it's hard to resist eating food when it's right in front of you. And with the recent rise in popularity of food accounts on Instagram, it's becoming even harder to stop those junk food, carbo-load, "anything with chocolate" cravings. Personally, I know that I follow 10+ of these notable accounts, commonly known as foodstagrams, where photos (accompanied by their specific location) consist of drool-worthy donuts, candy-covered milkshakes, mac and cheese burgers, and delectable pizza pies that make my stomach grumble just by looking at them. Like many others, I have fallen victim to this food craze. While my love for finding the best eats will never die, I think that all of us could use a little change in our eating habits. With the New Year just around the corner, It's time to challenge yourself to kick the unhealthy foodstagrams out of your phone and tempt yourself the right way: with some healthy foodie feeds that are so pretty you’ll never know they’re good for you too.

This account is owned by Jeannette Ogden, a wife and mother to the cutest kid. In addition to some adorable snapshots of her boy Elliot, Ogden posts incredible pics of the food that she eats, most of which is home made. And if you watch her Instagram stories, you'll get live updates not only of her daily meals, but also of little Elliot as he explores the world. There's really nothing better than an adorable baby and some delicious looking, healthy food.

Get your daily dose of beautiful bowls, perfect plates, and tasty treats from Rachael DeVaux, a registered dietitian. This girl serves up some delectable dishes, from elevated avo-toasts to protein-packed waffles, that will have you stocking your fridge and pantry with new ingredients in no time. And trust me, the credit card bills will be worth it.

3. @thetoastedpinenut

With her "orang-ins" in Orange County, California (gotta love the food puns), Lindsay's claim to fame as a recipe developer and food photographer makes for one awesome lifestyle. She shares with her followers some egg-cellent breakfast dishes, superb-looking salads, and drool-worthy desserts that you wouldn't believe were also good for you (did someone say zucchini chocolate chip bars?!).

4. @cleanfood_cleanmind

Charlotte is my go-to gal, not just for her good eats, but for her mantra and lifestyle. She's a firm believer in "self-empowerment, the strength we have as women, and the power we can unleash onto ourselves and to the world." One minute she'll be diving mouth-first into some vegetarian tacos, and the next she'll be jumping feet first into a tropical ocean. A little adventure and a lot of food, what more could someone ask for in life?

If you're checking out these accounts and thinking "I don't have the time to eat this healthy," maybe Sanaz will inspire you. She a lawyer, a wife, a mom of 2, and an avid runner, and still makes time to whip up these tasty (and healthy!) meals. The first step to healthy living is getting over the hurdle of excuses. One you stop complaining and start getting to work, you'll realize how fun, delicious, and rewarding a healthier lifestyle can be.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
