A week into 2016 and dinner ideas are already starting to run dry. If you are dreading the inevitable complaints from your family about how boring dinner is, then this blog post is for you! We’ve made a list of the top 5 Instagram accounts you NEED to follow for healthy food recipes. Any of these recipes would be delicious with certified Organic produce. These accounts are full of beautiful photos, and are packed with nutrient rich ideas. They are all definitely worth a follow!
1. Nosh and Nourish @noshandnourish
We are hooked on the bright colours, and beautiful photos on this account. The most popular recipe in 2015 was for curly sweet potato and carrot fries. How delicious do they look?! You can find a recipe for everything from soups, to salads, and even sangria on this account. We came across @noshandnourish while looking for a green smoothie recipe, but instead, we found a recipe for green smoothie pancakes! Yes, you read that correctly, and they’re DELICIOUS! Full recipes can be found on their website: noshandnourish.com, and Kelly Pfeiffer who runs the account also has a cookbook called Superfoods at Every Meal.
2. My New Roots @mynewroots
This account is full of gorgeous photos and really interesting recipes! We especially love the My New Roots website: www.mynewroots.org. It is incredibly user friendly, and it has a unique search feature. Instead of just searching the recipes for keywords such as “kale” or “quinoa” you can search for words such as “happy” or “cozy” which is really convenient for those more creative days. It’s awesome, and definitely worth taking a look! Sarah Britton runs the account, and is also the author of the “My New Roots” cookbook which is a collection of “plant based recipes for every season”. Up next on our list to try is the “Cauliflower Buns and Bagels”.
3. The First Mess @thefirstmess
We are fairly new followers of the @thefirstmess Instagram page but believe us, it doesn’t take long to realize that this account is a gold mine! We love that allergy information is easily accessible as it is listed on the website right beside the title of the recipe. We have our eye on the grilled/roasted fennel + quinoa crunch salad. Doesn’t it look incredible? Also, along with having an awesome account, Laura Wright is straight from Ontario, Canada.
4. Sprouted Kitchen @sproutedkitchen
The photos on this account blur the line between food and art. Every dish looks like a masterpiece! There are so many delicious recipes, you’ll never have to hear your family complain about being bored with dinner again! Sprouted Kitchen has recipes for everything from appetizers to desserts and even some unique categories such as recipes for feeding babies! We definitely would recommend following sprouted kitchen because of the wide range of recipes offered.
5. This Rawsome Vegan Life @thisrawsomeveganlife
Last but certainly not least, another Canadian account that we’ve been following for a long time! Emily von Euw posts beautiful photos of vegan meals. She is also a best selling author of her cookbook’s “This Rawsome Vegan Cookbook”, “100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks”, and finally, “Rawsome Vegan Baking”. The cookbooks have stunning photos for nearly every recipe which is awesome! There are also several recipes on her website: www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com. They are easy to follow, and so tasty! Try the “raw yam burgers & daikon fries” for this week’s #meatlessmonday.
We hope you love all of these accounts as much as we do! If you try any of these recipes, be sure to show us by tagging us on Instagram: @mikeandmikesorganics.
Until next time,
The Mike and Mike’s Staff.
