6 inspiring health Instagram accounts to follow
Instagram is the best. Full stop. What other form of social media can provide you with such inspiration fodder in the one place? Not one single one. (Okay, so Pinterest does come a very close second, but there’s just something a little more personal about this online photo-sharing app and its face-flattering filters.)
Instagram also allows the health-conscious who walk among us to share their visually outstanding food creations, as well as tips, tricks and quotes that’ll spur on even the unhealthiest human to rethink their eating and exercise regimen.
If you’re looking to add a few #healthies to your Instagram feed, we most certainly recommend you follow these six accounts first…
