3 instagram accounts that will inspire you to eat healthy

@HBFIT

HBFIT aka Health Beauty Fitness, was founded by Hannah Bronfman – a NYC DJ/ /Influencer/Health enthusiast. This instagram account is filled with carefully curated images promoting fitness, beauty and of course… food. The dishes found on this feed are filled with vibrant colours and a wide array of textures. I love that HBFIT not only features items that are good for you, they are also items that you will WANT to eat. Mouth watering images of avocado toast, fresh pressed juice and zucchini noodle soup will have you thinking twice about picking up another fast food meal at your local golden arches.

I thought it would be fun to share a visual exploration of this recipe so click on the video below to watch me in action (and look out for a cameo from Nucky, my squishy faced bulldog).
