Repeat after me: healthy food is the new food porn! This statement might have seemed impossible a few years ago, but it is (thankfully) very real today. Nut butter, smoothie and egg yolk drips seem to be everywhere on Instagram lately and are making something very interesting happen. They’re making healthy food sexy!
Skeptics might point to the nut butter to toast ratio going on in some creations and question the practicality of eating this way. Isn’t the whole point that is wonderfully impractical? The fact is, these creations are just plain fun. Something is finally making people excited about salad leaves, sourdough toast, smoothie jars, pasture-raised eggs and apple slices in a way that’s previously been reserved for bacon-wrapped everything and cheese with a side of pasta. What’s actually going to get more people excited about wellness is the drip, not the sad salad leaf.
2018 is about the assertion that in fact healthy food should make you drool all over your phone screen. Here are my 5 current favorite accounts that will make you excited about healthy food again:
