    7 Instagram Accounts Focused On Healthy Eating (Minus The Diet Culture)

    Published Feb 25th, 2021 & updated on Mar 19th, 2021

    It can be overwhelming when you first start looking at recipes and learning how to focus on healthy eating. There’s so much diet culture and diet-centred rhetoric out there that it’s hard to figure out fact from fiction when it comes to food. We don’t want you to be exposed to all that crap because we don’t believe in diets or diet culture, and we don’t believe in following people who promote it.

    Well, don’t worry! You can avoid alllll of that because we’ve already done the work for you! Here’s a list of some of our favourite accounts that promote healthy eating with ZERO body shaming and diet-rhetoric.

    1. @drjoshuawolrich

    One of our favourite doctors, Dr. Joshua Wolrich, is all about helping people eat what they want and feel good while doing it. He’s here to fight the stigma around weight, champion his patients, and post some really cute pics of his pup. 

     

    2. @uclnutritionsociety

    This account doesn’t have a ton of followers yet, but it has some of the YUMMIEST recipes that we’ve come across. If you’re looking to make delicious food, this is basically the only account you need. They make everything from smoothie bowls, to pancakes, to homemade Reese’s eggs!

    They create recipes that benefit your body and mind that also taste AMAZING. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we are going to go make one of these dishes for our supper.

    Madalyn is a fantastic dietician who focuses on helping people with diabetes manage their blood sugar and still eat what they love!

    We love her because she is NOT here for body shaming and diets either. Rachel is allll about intuitive eating and teaching people how to enjoy every bite of their delicious food.
