Jasmin from Ve Eat Cook Bake is such a lovely person with a huge, kind heart and so, so much creativity. If you’re a foodie and/or are looking for delicious vegan recipes, Jasmin’s your girl. Fair warning, you will probably drool on your phone now and again, because my goodness her food looks so good. And, as someone who has recreated many of her dishes, I can attest that they taste just as amazing as they look.

Jasmin also shares her German culture through tons of delicious German recipes, among lots of western classics. Food is such an important part of our culture and connection, both to our home and family as well as to each other.

Final Thoughts

A woman stands on the side walks and holds her phone up to take a selfie.

Ultimately, what matters is that your online spaces are your spaces. Follow those who inspire, educate and/or uplift you. Let go of those who bring you down. Diversify your feed with people who add something to your world and make you feel good.

And don’t be afraid to unfollow or mute anyone who’s toxic for you. Even if you know them. You have control over your feed and it should not be a space that’s bad for your mental well-being.

I’d love to know which creators you adore! Who inspires you, teaches you great things or simply fills your feed with goodness? Share a link to your favourite inspiring Instagram accounts in the comments below!

      I think a social media clean up is such a helpful form of self-care. It really should be a space that feels right for you and hopefully uplifts you. I hope that you find tons of wonderful accounts to follow and feel much better after the tone has shifted! <3
