Way back in 2014, I wrote this post about why I love Instagram so much. Instagram is like a happy union between glossy magazine, family photo album, and public diary so it’s no wonder I still love scrolling through the app to this day!
With that in mind, I thought I’d do a little series shouting out some of the accounts I love to follow. Starting with a very controversial subject matter — FOOD. Secretly (well, not such a secret NOW), I LOVE the fact that there are folks out there who take pics of their meals. While I recognize the critique of the millennial snappin’ pics of her plate while her food gets cold is a valid one, the entertainment factor on my end is certainly enjoyable. (And if it brings the ‘grammer joy too then I say, “DO. YOU.”)
You Should Totally Follow —
amy__currie … for her Trader Joe’s hauls and serious commitment to Pizza Fridays.
beckyinbold … for the super simple Whole 30 meal ideas and hiker snacks.
chefdphillips … because she’s a Kentucky girl and she wrote an awesome cookbook.
honeysucklebeez … for the beautiful food styling and meal prep ideas for busy bees!
pinchofmar … for fresh fruit and veggie inspo and her realistic healthy meals.
100daysofrealfood … because real food is the BEST food and you gotta love a lunchbox snap!
Over to you! Leave your fave foodie follows in the comments below. Oh, and drop your IG handle as well. Mine is @BBerg1012 and I’d love to connect (even though my foodie IG game could use some work, lol).
I’ve decided I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker in love with Instagram. And I think I’m pulled to it for the same reason print magazines are still one of my favorite guilty pleasures (even though the Internet is a much freer version)…the same reason I would pull albums out every single trip to my grandparent’s house (both sets). I like looking at pretty things and images that someone, somewhere thought were important enough to document. Sure, in the age of smart phones the impulse to capture can happen quicker, the end product may not speak to their reality as strongly but the edited version of one’s life can be just as interesting. It’s almost like a happy union between glossy magazine, family photo album, and public diary. Mmmm, when I put it like that no WONDER I love it so much. Here are a few of my favorite follows…
those breakfasts. that food styling.
those outfits. that location.
those babies. that pup.
those accessory and hair choices. that color commitment.
(bonus: she has a mini pig.)
those morning views. that tiny home.
I also love youngmarysrecord, traciemorrissey, lightbycoco and so, so, SO many more!
