Between decadent cheese pulls, yolk porn, and vibrant smashed avocado on rye, social media is fast becoming THE place for all things food-related. One platform however, is absolutely perfect for the weird and wonderful world of food images, and that site is Instagram.

If you’re a foodie, you’ll love spending hours on end trawling through the gram, checking out images of the best-looking food you could ever wish to sample. The problem is that because of the sheer volume of Instagram accounts now dedicated to food and drink, knowing which ones to follow can be as difficult as deciding whether to go for Chicago style or thin and crispy.

If you like your food pics and recipes to be weird, yet wonderful, make sure you give the following accounts a follow the next time you’re on the 'gram.

If you like your recipes served up with amusing written commentary and angry rantings then Mandy Lee’s Instagram account is well worth following. Mandy is a self-confessed ‘angry food blogger’ who regularly posts delicious home-cooked meals and recipes with hilarious rants about all kinds of daily goings on.

The recipes are nothing overly fancy, and although the images are of a high quality, the food itself isn’t going to win any awards for presentation. And do you know what? We’re pretty sure that Mandy doesn’t care.

When you think of Instagram food pictures, if think of super HD, bright, vibrant, and stylish images that would look at home in an art gallery, chances are that Ashley Alexander’s posts definitely fit that brief.

Based out of Melbourne, Ashley Alexander is a food blogger that creates art from the images she will be utilizing in her original and delicious recipes. In all honesty, one could easily spend hours simply admiring the image on their screen, and that’s before the recipe has even been assembled.

Thought salad was a dull, boring, half-hearted side dish for people attempting to be healthy? Think again. Julia Sherman lives and breathes for salads on the gram. She is the founder of a food blog that is dedicated to, yep, you guessed it – salad!

The images of salads she posts on Instagram will have you drooling at the prospect of eating a salad, and how many of you can honestly say that you’ve ever done that before? There aren’t many people that can get you excited at the thought of eating leaves, but Julia manages it in a simple, artistic, and exciting way.
