We know that vegan and vegetarian eating is nothing new, but we can’t help but notice how popular these diets are becoming in Baton Rouge.
Whether you’re a devout vegan or just looking for more meatless meals for Lent, check out these five Baton Rouge-based Instagram accounts for some plant-powered recipe inspo.
The Nutritious Table
On The Nutritious Table, holistic nutrition student Kelly Zoghbi shows that vegan eating can be as delicious as it is nutritious. Her recipes include garlic-herb cashew cheese, raspberry key lime matcha bars and colorful, garnished-to-perfection smoothies.
Any time I see star fruit I buy a few, and if you caught my story on Sunday you saw that I found the mother of all star fruit at @wholefoods ⭐️ I threw it in my smoothie for lunch today along with frozen mango, banana, strawberries, @dope_naturally beet powder, hemp seeds and chia seeds! Topped with beet chia pudding and apricots ☺️ tastes like summer on this January afternoon ☀️ #alohasolplantchallenge
The Johnston Table
Follow The Johnston Table on Instagram for gorgeous food photos from Jody and Olivia Johnston. Several recipes are vegetarian or vegan, like vegetable shepherd’s pie and cauliflower crust pizza topped with sweet potato, pear, purple cabbage, diced mushrooms, kale and feta.
Scott Chachere and Kaitlynn Fenley run Cultured Guru, a fermented food company and blog. Their Instagram features tons of eye-catching vegan meals, which often include their sauerkraut or kimchi for a dose of gut-healthy probiotics.
