The #healthy craze on social media: why not join in !?
You can get some good vibes from social media. Many so-called influencers recommend a healthy lifestyle with a diet that is both balanced and tasty. They are happy to show you what’s on their plate and reveal their training schedules. As such, they are a source of inspiration for healthy living.
More than just a passing fad, healthy living has become a lifestyle choice. Looking after yourself is now mainstream. Social media have helped spark a massive realisation that we need to think care- fully about what we eat. Sport and exercise have become an essential part of feeling good about ourselves and keeping healthy. And it all started on social media. Through Instagram we can share quality images. These are essentially a new form of advertising for a new generation. Who has ne- ver salivated at the sight of a superb mixed salad or fresh fruit posted on their feed?
What’s a Food Influencer?
You could also call them “foodistas”. These are people who share nutritional insights on their social networks. In France, “food” is the third most followed subject on Instagram. In fact, we look to food influencers for inspiration when pondering what to put on our plate and how to cook it. Influencers are focusing more and more on healthy eating, or what nourishes us. “Junk food” is less and less acceptable. We all want recipes that are healthy and good for our bodies. Influencers direct their followers towards specialist brands of healthy food. They sample and offer advice. It’s lifestyle 2.0 applied to that most basic of needs – food!
