If you’re new to a vegetarian or vegan diet, it might seem a bit daunting to come up with something fresh, delicious and new every day. Or perhaps you’ve been on your journey for a while, but your lunch is getting a bit boring and your dinner choices are getting totally stale. You may even be thinking of making a big leap to a more plant based diet and just need a bit of a push, or just some plain old inspiration from some cool folks that know more about it than you.
Well, Instagram is the place to go! It’s full of amazing food picks, recipes to make your mouth water and lots of people who have this plant based lifestyle thing totally sussed out. It’s also such a great medium to show food off to its full potential! Here are our favorite Vegan and Veggie Instagrammers.
