It’s a fair question that even our government is trying to tackle. And almost everyone has an opinion. It’s high-fat, low-carb. No, it’s low-fat, high-carb. Others say the answer is a Mediterranean-style of eating. And you’ll get an entirely different answer from the Paleo crowd.
But truthfully, it’s enough to make your head spin. So we took a level-headed approach: In rounding up the food Instagrammers who inspire our “healthy” meals, we did our best to select accounts that reflect an everything-in-moderation approach. You’ll find a lot of wholesome ingredients, plant- and meat-based dishes and the occasional sweet treat, too.
But no funfetti. And no straight-up baking blogs. And not because there is anything wrong with that deliciousness, but just because we had to draw a line somewhere.
We trust you’ll occasionally indulge, too. Because strictly clean eating? That’s confining, time-consuming and likely unenjoyable. And you’d be missing out, if you ask us.

Lazy girl dinner turned into this 🥑🌹 Spicy sesame cabbage (inspo from @leefromamerica) with a hemp + greens @hilaryseatwell burg that I now claim my favorite flavor ☝️, roasted sweet pots, fermented ginger beets and a perfectly ripe avo . . Directions: Slice sweet potato into rounds, spray with @chosenfoods avocado oil & season with pink salt, pepper & chili powder. Lay flat on baking sheet with @hilaryseatwell burger in the oven on BROIL to cook about 10-12 minutes, flipping burg halfway through. Heat @chosenfoods spicy sesame oil in skillet to sauté cabbage for about 5-7 min with liquid aminos. Top with black sesame seeds 😻✨
