The 12 Best Registered Dietitians to Follow on Instagram

Spoon University logo Spoon University 11/1/2018 Claire Tunnell

Have you ever come across a meal on Instagram that looked as delicious as it was beautiful, but the recipe had too many steps and required too many specialty health ingredients? Healthy recipes, although pretty and extravagant, can be daunting and expensive to attempt. Healthy eating doesn't have to be pricey or scary. From following Registered Dietitians on Instagram, I've found that they are the best at providing realistic and easy meal ideas while still keeping health in mind. A Registered Dietitian is different from a nutritionist in that they have completed the necessary higher education, passed a national exam, and completed an internship. So if you're looking for quick nutrition tips, meal ideas, or just great photos of food, then here are the best Registered Dietitian Instagrams to follow for optimal inspiration.

1. Rachel Paul, PhD RD @collegenutrionist
