Some of us start with the best intentions – spring clean the house, get in some exercise and spend the weekend re-energising. The rest of us embrace the fact that the weekend ahead will be spent catching up with lots of friends and family, where we’ll indulge in lots of food, copious amounts of wine and, naturally, Easter eggs big and small.
Roll on Monday evening and we start to wonder where the weekend went and why we can’t have just one more day to recover. We understand. So in anticipation of that fateful Monday, here are some of the best Instagrammers and Pinterest boards that will get you inspired and kick start the post-Easter health kick you’ll be craving.
One of the most exciting food bloggers out there, Ella Woodward was suffering from a rare illness that left her mostly bed-bound and in constant pain, when she decided to try overhauling her diet. The 22-year-old embraced a fully vegan lifestyle and gave up refined sugar, gluten, dairy, processed food and meat.
Within weeks she was on the road to recovery, and the blog which she started has turned into an app which shot to the top of the iTunes chart, more than 100,000 followers on Instagram and a book deal. Her recipes are inspiring and beautifully shot – try one of her many rainbow salad bowls and her sweet potato brownies!

They’ve got a book coming out this summer too called ‘The Art of Eating Well’, so keep your eyes peeled.
This Swedish personal trainer originally started her blog for her clients, but it soon took on a life of its own. Faya resides in West London and started her blog in 2013. On her Pinterest and Instagram pages she celebrates of all things health, fitness and fashion and named her blog after realising how many types of food Brits have on toast.
