At My Healthy DXB, we love Instagram! It’s a great place to get inspiration; notice trends and gives snapshots of someone’s life and food choices. If you are trying to lead a healthy life and eat cleaner, it’s a great place to find someone who can inspire you to do just that. Following some of the Dubai-based healthy Insta-foodies is a great way to get the newest about what and where to eat healthy in Dubai. Instagram gives you the chance to follow their moves and follow their advice on making the healthy choice.
We hooked up with a few of our favorite Dubai Insta-foodies to learn more about what is behind the pretty pictures on their Instagram profiles.
The first account @Veggiebuzz belongs to Sumati Menda. Through her @Veggiebuzz Instagram profile and blog with the same name, Sumati gives the ‘grassy’ perspective on restaurant meals and recipes for vegetarians, vegans and anyone who enjoys vegetarian food once in a while.
The @Veggiebuzz Insta profile give more of a fun and instant glimpses of the meals and vegetarian dishes Sumati tries at various vegetarian-friendly restaurants around town. In the Veggiebuzz blog Sumati gives you the chance to read her full review of her food experiences.
Sumati explains about her relation to Instagram: 'I love learning about the new food trends, and trying out delicious, healthy & creative vegetarian recipes through other people’s profiles. My latest interest is dairy-free recipes, so if I see a picture of a delicious looking dairy free dish on someone’s profile, it gets me excited.'
One of the reasons why we truly like @Veggiebuzz is because Sumati simply inspires you to eat more veggies! Sumati's recommendations go beyond the vegetarian only places, but show you ‘omnivore’ places that take their vegetable dishes beyond the boring raw salad and boiled vegetables. The @veggiebuzz blog also covers recipes, features, and fun lists.
Sumati's official hashtag for @Veggiebuzz is #Veggiebuzzing. Make sure to include her hashtag in your own fab veggie food photos if you want a chance at being featured on her Instagram feed.
