I am always looking for new food inspiration and instagram is a great place to find it. I do prefer looking for vegan feeds and it’s harder to get a good following as a vegan account because the audience is a lot smaller. Plant based accounts are great as well, but I am going to share the ones I know are also totally vegan and we can follow them knowing everything is suitable, including any other non-diet related tips.
Do you have a favourite I haven’t mentioned? I would love to hear about them!
One of the first accounts I ever followed and someone I very much admire, Tiina has an incredible eye for detail and makes her food look very inviting. Her photos are easily some of the best on instagram, so bright and fun. Not just good-looking food and styling, but great skill behind the camera. It’s hard to find an account that has both impressive photos and healthy food so this one is a real find. I also particularly recommend @myberryforest for families, with many meals ideal for children and lots of fun looking dishes that will surely impress even the most fussy young children!
A stunning, incredibly creative instagram feed, this is a true joy to look through. This is great food, lots of healthy yummy meals I get inspiration from all the time, like the Sushi Bowl above. But what makes this feed stand out for me, is the remarkable artistic quality to each finished dish, this is food styling at its best. Run by Sheil Shukla, a medical student, it’s a feast for the eyes.
Nicole English is the brilliant mind behind Raw Kiwi. A fellow kiwi like myself, I discovered Raw Kiwi early on when I joined IG. As you probably guessed, this feed is largely raw food. Perfect and beautifully photographed smoothies, some of the best raw desserts you’ll see and some indulgent pizzas, burgers and loads of popsicles!! They’re my favourite! You’ll occasionally see me guest blogging on Nicole’s website too.
I adore Rita’s feed, it’s just bursting with colour and style. It’s great, close-up shots of food but it’s so beautifully placed as well, so perfectly put together ingredients. If you’re into healthy, well-rounded food feeds, this is my pick. You get the gorgeous dessert shots we all love, but even more wonderful lunches and dinners to drool over- and you will! Rita clearly loves food and lots of love and attention goes into each gorgeous dish.
This instagram account is the work of Timothy Parkon, Mississippi born and bred, hence the name. His food looks authentic and inviting, the plating and styling though is what really sets this feed apart. It is the stuff of dreams. I love that the photos aren’t full of products- it’s the food we want people! And here, its the food, glorious food, we get. You’ll find plants in their natural state, artfully photographed, and then the meals themselves look like some kind of masterpiece as well. An array of different dishes, sushi, gnocchi, quiche, soups and of course Gumbo! It’s really varied but the food always looks so delicious. I would literally eat anything from his feed.
A really fresh and varied plant based vegan feed that never fails to make me feel hungry! I like these photos because they really focus on the food, it’s clear and well-shot, simply styled. I often get disappointed with instagram foodie accounts which over-style the shot and the food because an insignificant part of the photo. I think this is why I like this so much, the food is the hero! You’ll get loads of dinner inspiration here, another feature often lacking in vegan instagram world- the desserts and smoothies are usually a predominant feature. Happily, this feed is the opposite, with a strong focus on savoury dishes.
Pure decadence and beauty, this is a feed to make you smile. A fantastically talented woman, Anthea is an incredible cake artist, it blows my mind! She has a desserts ebook too, if you want to try some of these amazing cakes.
A rustic and wholesome looking instagram feed, I love it when one of their creations pops up on my phone. The food always looks really satisfying and inviting, the kind of food you instantly want to sink your teeth into. Diana Bezanski is the talent behind Fogwood and Fig, an American lifestyle and food photographer.
My latest instagram discovery, can’t believe I haven’t come across this feed before. Its sensationally good vegan food, and looking at the feed is just like a colour explosion, a feast for the eyes! Gaz Oakley is the very clever Chef responsible for this amazing account- I hear he has a YouTube account too so I will have to check that out. I love the diverse range of dishes featured, lots of super fancy plates that you’d expect from a Chef. But don’t worry, its not the kind that makes you feel inadequate! Its the kind that inspires you. There are also loads of simple and ‘normal’ meals we all like, wraps, burgers, tacos and divine desserts- although there is really no way I am going to be able to decorate mine to his high standard! I haven’t found a new account thats blown me away for ages so I am excited to find this.
Another raw food account I love, Edgar creates mostly raw dishes which jump out at me every time I look through his feed. Plants are so beautiful and colourful on their own, and even more visually appetising when pulled together to create healthy, delicious and importantly animal-free meals. I love the rainbow rolls in this feed, the fruit platters which makes me long for summer again, and the raw desserts don’t disappoint this dessert-lover either.
I hope you enjoyed my round-up of the best vegan instagrammers! Drop a comment below if you can help me discover even more.
