Healthy Lifestyle Inspiration from Instagram

Ashley Cramer, owner of The Barre Studio in Capitola, Calif., pens a monthly lifestyle and fitness blog for The Penny Rose.

It still feels like summer here in Capitola, Calif., but Labor Day’s passing means that fall is on the way. Maybe you kept your bikini body all summer long, but for many of us, the carefree days of summer vacations, barbecues, and irregular schedules got in the way of fitness and eating routines. Now, the change of seasons gives a perfect time to focus on healthy habits. If you need a bit of healthy lifestyle inspiration, Instagram is a great resource for finding healthy recipes, workout ideas or a bit of motivation. These are a few of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow.

The Chalkboard Mag, @thechalkboardmag 

Launched by Pressed Juicery, The Chalkboard Mag brings together insights from a mix of health experts, style stars and food bloggers to inspire your wellness journey. This is one of my favorite healthy lifestyle resources, and the well-curated photography is always welcome in my feed.

Lorna Jane, @lornajaneactive 

This Australian fitness brand’s Instagram will inspire you to “move, nourish, believe.” Among the motivational quotes, recipes and fitness photographs, you may also pick up a few fashion tips to keep you looking good while you move. 

Nutrition Stripped, @nutritionstripped

Mckel Hill is a Registered Dietician Nutritionist who focuses on whole-body wellness. She says that “Living whole and eating well should make you feel radiant, sexy, and energized as much as it nourishes your cells.” The stylish, inviting photography, whole food recipes and nutrition advice make for a must-follow account.

Oh She Glows, @ohsheglows

Angela Liddon is the author of New York Times Bestseller, The Oh She Glows Cookbook, Vegan Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out. Whether you’re vegan or not, you’re sure to find approachable, delicious, plant-based recipes to inspire your healthy eating. 

Tone It Up, @toneitup

You may love trainers Karena and Katrina or love to hate them, but with over 500,000 followers and plenty of Tone It Up follower success stories, they’re doing something right. Try one of their daily workouts like 7-minute HIIT (high intensity interval training), total body toner or calorie crush cardio when you need to squeeze in a workout at home.
