6 Healthy Food Instagram Channels We Love!

Social media has well and truly integrated with the day to day operations of almost every human on the planet. Most of us are even guilty of using social scrolling to either wake us up in the morning or to distract us from standing in a coffee, bank or MyCiti bus queue.

Wherever and whenever you use it, one thing is important to take note of, by asking yourself:

How do I feel after I scroll through my Instagram feed?

Do you normally feel inspired and educated or do you feel jealous and miserable?

If it’s more of the latter you need to know that it’s important for you to monitor your feelings and take charge to curate the type of experience you online. You have the power to control the images, ideas and themes that flash across your screen and the exposure you have to various social communities.

At PureGood we love following profiles that feed both our mind and soul. We follow individuals and companies who are looking to share their unique experiences whilst offering reliable advice, insights and engaging topics.

We’ve collected a list of some of our favourites who we would definitely recommend you follow:
