When you’re busy, hungry, and trying to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour, the smallest factor can sway your decision making. A stranger on the T is eating fragrant fries? Fast food it is. Your favorite delivery app is running a promotion? Takeout, please.
That’s why it’s helpful to surround yourself with healthy inspiration, in whatever form you can find it. Not sure where to start? Try these 10 local healthy food-focused Instagram accounts.
