Kale Is Over: 11 Food Porn Instagrammers To Follow

'Because you can't milk an almond'


It's not hard to flick through Instagram nowadays without feeling the shame and guilt at being bombarded with #eatclean images of acai bowls, quinoa porridge and kale…well, kale everything.

We've talked at length on ELLE UK about the importance of being 'food normal' instead of embarking on an obsessive clean eating spiral.


It's made even worse by the fact you're more than likely to end up scrolling through these pictures while battling a hungover on a Sunday morning  surrounded by crumbs and an empty box of mozzarella dippers.

However, a new tribe of Instagram girls are coming to the rescue, rebelling against perfectly poised images of breakfast juices and fruit bowls in favour of embracing indulgent, heavy and non-diet foods.  


Everything in moderation, of course.

Gone are boastful posts about ashtanga yoga, the benefits of starting your day with a blueberry-cabage power juice and endless reasons as to why the NutriBullet is a desert island essential. 

Welcome saliva-enducing images of burgers, oozing with crispy bacon and ketchup, pick-and-mix topped ice cream Sundaes and rainbow-coloured bagels

After all, there's only so much you can do with a sweet potato. 

In honour of these Haribo-loving heroes, here are the food porn Instagrammers that have stolen our hearts…and our stomachs: 

1. Sweet Mickie


Melborne-based cookie company Sweet Mickie started after its founder became increasingly annoyed with seeing green smoothies on social media and wanted to make a cookie that was 100% kale free.

Focussing on 'Taking the Mickie', the company creates buttery biscuits to fight back against the sugar haters with phrases such as  'I Quit Kale', 'No Carbs, No Fun', 'Gluttony is Back' and 'Kate Moss Lied'.

2. How Two Live

Prepare to drool.

With over 328,000 Instagram followers, Ohio-based student Michele Mansoor created the food-loving account as a joke and claims her motivation for the account is simply down to her obsession with food.

Warning: If the words 'chocolate peanut butter cheesecake cupcake' and 'brioche ice cream sandwich' already have you falling into sugar-induced coma, you might want to take a moment before scrolling through this account. 

6. Deliciously stella


One of our favourite women on Instragram to date has to be British comedian Bella Younger, a.k.a Deliciously Stella.

The 27-year-old's satirical account is the antithesis to #eatclean blogs, featuring images of her 'home-made' face packs of Nutella, workouts involving strapping Fab lollies to her stomach and explainations about how Party Rings are her nutrionist's recommended 'hole food'. 

Our favourite quote? 'You can't milk an almond' 

7. Hungrytwins

What can be better than a girl who loves a Nutella cheesecake crepe? Twins, that's what.

With over 270,000 followers, the Hungry Twins post daily images of grease and sugar-laden foods alongside hilarious captions such as, 'If we're not supposed to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?' and 'If you can't handle me at my hungriest, you don't deserve me when I'm full'.

8. Girleatworld


We all know the best part of traveling is the chance to try exotic cuisines from around the world and know one knows better than travel blogger Melissa Hie.

From Arabic semolina cake from a Souk in Jordan to Hello Kitty donuts at a road crossing in Tokyo, Hie will have you racing to book your next summer holiday, stat. 

9. Foooodieee


Long Island native Tessa Gluck created her foodie account after flicking through pictures on her way to work and instantly falling in love with the feeling she got on seeing a donut ice cream sandwich. 

'I instantly started drooling, and realized that I wanted that same effect that I had to have on people that know me or don't know me,' she told Tote Magazine.

The account features everything from Oreo truffle peanut butter cakes to rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches.
