There is so much food inspiration on social media it’s hard to figure out who to follow. Everywhere we turn, it seems we’re getting advice on what to eat (or not eat) and how to fuel our bodies.

Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of the best Dallas based nutritionists and food experts to follow on social media (in no particular order), if you want to get the most up-to-date information about food and nutrition.

We’ve also included a few former Dallasites who are now based in new cities.
They all know their way around an avocado and have a thing or two to say about coconut oil. They are sure to inspire you, inform you with solid information and consistently make you drool with healthy food ideas, whether that’s high protein Texas BBQ or low-calorie Tex Mex tacos!

P.S, if you think we’ve left anyone out that should be on the list, feel free to message us and let us know!
