Let’s be honest: Sometimes we all need a little extra push to get our daily doses of fruits and veggies in. And in my experience, even just seeing pictures of healthy, nutrient-rich meals other people are fueling their bodies with inspires me to put the box of Kraft back in the cupboard and whip out the arugula and avocado, instead. And the best source of veggie and fruit-filled food porn? The vegans of Instagram, of course. These Instagrammers have the magical ability to make mouths water with photos of smoothies and kale salad. Really.
So, to help you start putting your social media addiction to good (and healthy) use, we rounded up 10 Philly-based vegan Instagrammers who you should be following. These 10 accounts will have you ditching pizza for avocado rose-topped zoodles in no time flat.

This Philly vegan will inspire you to taste the rainbow with her gorgeous pictures of fruit-filled smoothie bowls and nice cream. But don’t worry, she throws in some vegan indulgences too, like vegan pizza, donuts and mac and cheese. Seriously, I’m drooling over here, guys.
I don’t know if y’all can see but there are the teeniest tiny chocolate stars in my smoothie today! They are so cute!!! Plus they are vegan! The smoothie is three bananas, frozen pineapple, a fresh mango, a ton of spinach, and a splash of real orange juice! On top is chia seeds, puffed wheat, and raspberries! Have y’all tried any puffed grains?? Which kind are your favorite?

This account definitely deserves your love, guys. This Instagrammer is “veganstagraming” (clever, no?) her way though Philly — and boy, does it look good or what? Her feed is filled with acai bowls, cauliflower tacos, falafel quinoa bowls, and other vegan eats you can find around town as well as some homemade meal inspiration like her Thai curry with tempeh, and baked apple cinnamon granola.
If you’re on the hunt for vegan finds in the ‘burbs look no further: This Instagram account captures finds at Philly vegan hot spots like Vedge and Bar Bombon along with lesser-known spots in the Philly suburbs.

And speaking of Vedge, you know we couldn’t leave them off this list. The crazy-talented masterminds at this veggie joint have the power to make plant-based cuisine (and happy hour cocktails) look absolutely divine. Think I’m kidding? Check it out for yourself.
OK, I’m totally guilty of obsessing over this account, but I just can’t resist. I’ve been following this vegan account for awhile now and her account never fails to make me drool, whether it’s with innovative snacks like buffalo avocado wings and salt and vinegar roasted chickpeas, or delicious, veganized meals from Whole Foods or El Vez.
