Great nutrition is one of the keys to living a happy and healthy lifestyle. But going it alone and trying to figure it out for yourself can be daunting.

Luckily these days, social media gives us easy access to some of the best minds in the business when it comes to nutrition.

“Who should I follow and what type of diet will suit me best” might be a question you’ve asked yourself.

Well, we’ve taken the time to narrow it down a little bit for you. Over the past few weeks, we’ve scrolled endlessly through the various social media platforms and narrowed it down to a list of who we think are the top 30 Irish nutritionists and foodies to follow on Social Media (in no particular order).

The list is comprised of nutritional experts that follow various philosophies, from Vegan to Keto and anything else in between, and we think the content produced by everyone on the list is really useful for anyone interested in improving their nutrition.

So let’s do less talking and more learning about nutrition, go follow the 30 accounts below and soon you’ll know the difference between your micro’s and your macros, your avocados from your jackfruit and you’ll be on the path to a healthy lifestyle, happier gut, stronger heart and a more interesting dinner plate.
