The most savory foodie Instagram accounts to follow

There are famous foodie Instagrammers who share the philosophy that if you did not Instagram the meal, it is as if you never even ate it.

Then, there are the foodies at heart, who let’s just face it, are too lazy and too hungry to stop and take a photoshoot of their Philly Cheesesteak.

Then there are people who don’t think Instagramming food is “sexy” enough (looking at you Kim Kardashian).

Well, it’s a good thing there are plenty of foodies out there who stop and snap a picture before stuffing the food down their throats.

We love you for it.

Follow NYCDining if you consider yourself an ultimate artistic foodie.

An NYU senior, Skyler Bouchard is a self-proclaimed creative and adventurist who takes pride in her #IActuallyDidEatThat mouth-watering Instagram posts.

A diverse collection of detailed and modern NYC culinary finds ranging from Pillsbury pizza cakes to homemade Lucky Charms- double fudge- white chocolate chip- pancakes. This foodie does not discriminate against calories, carbs, sugar, gluten and all the above.

Twenty-thousand followers live and eat vicariously through Skyler, and it is no surprise why.

“In 9th grade someone asked me what I wanted to do with my life and I said, “eat and entertain people.” The lunch table laughed at me as I finished my Chipwich – I was already doing my job. When people think of food, they think of sustenance. I think of experience and adventure. Dining is the ultimate five-sense experience and can always be an adventure, so why not make it that way?” – Skyler Bouchard, Creator of NYCDining

This one-of-a-kind Philippines based burger joint made an Instagram account solely intended to make Americans jealous and thank god that they did.

The pictures capture the innovative burger combinations tempting even the strictest of vegetarians to break their vow and go grab a beef-filled delight.

If you are into clean eating, this 20-something-year-old Instagrammer is your go-to-girl to follow.

It is not exactly easy to make a salad and kale chips look appetizing but somehow, she pulls it off.

The occasional motivational fitness selfie doesn’t hurt the wishful waistline either.

Bravo @Fitgirlzfoodz for making 500,950 people drool over brussel sprouts. You’re making every mom out there

Yes, this entire Instagram account is dedicated to donuts and only donuts – Dunkin, Krispy Kreme and all the gourmet in-betweens.

Avoid following this account if you are trying to be skinny and diet because these pictures of small fried cakes of sugar-covered dough can guarantee a failed resist to temptation.

This is for all the Northerners-who-consider- bagel-a food-group. The New Jersy-based duo eats at the best bagel shops in the tri-state area and make every Northerner stuck in the South (and knows what a real bagel is) hate them for it.

Lox, Taylor ham egg & cheese, tuna fish, and even the simple cream cheese bagel are properly glorified by @betchesnbagels.

“Take it from a fellow Jersey girl who can appreciate a genuine and fat bagel, Betchesnbagels gets it,” says Bridget Murphy, senior at College of Charleston.

We all know those people who simply cannot survive without cheese. Perhaps you are even one of them.

@Thecheesious surely knows the heartache of a dish without cheese, so they make it their priority to include the irresistible dairy product in every single meal.

Hence, the Instagram account in cheese’s honor. Pizza, mozzarella sticks, burgers, hotdogs, sandwiches, pasta, breads all photographed smothered in … cheese.

This young Australian food blogger emphasizes breakfast being the most important meal of the day and she makes no qualms about it (not that anyone is complaining).

Waking up to a daily @breakfastinsydney post that screams food porn can turn even the grouchiest of early-risers into (extremely hungry) morning people.

It features recipes so her followers can at least attempt to copy her edible morning creations.

Peanut butter-stuffed pancakes topped with fresh fruit and ricotta cheese or cheddar smothered eggs and Canadian bacon drizzled with avocado pesto over toast…just imagining what that does to your taste buds can make you stop whatever you are doing and hop on a plane headed down under.

“I try to make at least one ‘breakfastinsydney’ meal every weekend. Not only are they relatively easy to prepare but mind-blowingly delicious. Everything is out of the ordinary. My favorite recipe is her crunchy brioche French toast with caramelized bananas, hazelnuts and Belgian chocolate,” says Nikki DiMaglia, culinary arts major at Southern New Hampshire University.

For all you people who just cannot get enough food, those who believe calories do not exist, and there is no such thing as too many carbs…this is your go-to Instagram account.

Endless array of food porn that will make you want to lick your phone screen.

Oh and yes, that is in fact a stuffed melted mozzarella, penne vodka, and Parmesan crusted chicken cutlet wrap. Although the identity of the genius food photographers who created the account is unknown, whoever you are, wherever you are, thank you for keeping 1 million people up at night wishing they were you.
