Recently I’ve started following a lot of health food bloggers on Instagram. Maybe it’s my social media subconscious trying to make up for all of the holiday treats I’ve been eating, or maybe it’s because I’m in awe of all the mouth-watering recipes they’re coming up with. (Sidenote: can I hire one of them to be my personal chef?) Either way, these gals are not messing around when it comes to eating healthy. Now especially with Christmas right around the corner, it’s easy to get distracted from healthy eating, so why not start the day out with a healthy breakfast? It’s been proven that if you start out with a healthy meal, you’re more likely to continue that trend throughout the day. To give you a few breakfast ideas, we rounded up 7 of the most popular health food bloggers and they’re favorite breakfast recipes.
