LA Times Says to Follow #plantbased on Instagram Now

The publication advises readers to take advantage of the new Instagram feature by following the growing trend of plant-based foods.

A recent feature in Los Angeles Times highlighted a number of hashtags, including #plantbased, to follow on Instagram—a new feature the social media platform launched last week. “Get with the times, people,” writer Holly Van Hare said. “Even elementary schools are doing it. In 2018, all the experts have predicted that eating plant-based is going to be the new thing.” Van Hare advised readers that preparing plant-based foods is not difficult. “Plant-based meals are easier than you'd think to whip up,” Van Hare said, “but for some healthy inspiration, follow this hashtag, and find yourself raving over vegetarian entrées and vegan desserts.” Van Hare also recommended that readers take advantage of the new feature by following “#avocado” to stay updated on the myriad ways Instagrammers are using the popular fruit.
