Nutritionist Ellie Bullen's Plant-Based Day on a Plate Is Instagram Worthy
If you're not familiar with nutritionist Ellie Bullen's name, you may find that you've stumbled across her beautifully curated travel and plant-based food photos while scrolling Instagram without even realising.
Her account, Elsa's Wholesome Life, has amassed a following of more than 613k, and with a nutrition and dietetics degree to her name, a blog and two cookbooks, Ellie has attracted a community of like-minded people all centred around her simple philosophy of "eat more plants".
"During my degree I transitioned the way I eat and my lifestyle. It was a combination of learning more through university, as well as watching some documentaries and being inspired by others. It just felt right for me and learning more about the environmental impact and the ethical side of those industries," she says.
We spoke to the 24-year-old Australian to find out how she edits her Instagram photos (because, obviously, we all want to know), as well as how she approaches an average day of eating to ensure her body is nourished, both inside and out.
Ellie suggests, "If you are just starting out [with a plant-based diet], try having one day that's meat-free every week. Get yourself a good cookbook, then start experimenting with recipes and creating different meals, then you can learn how to go plant-based and be more confident in it," Ellie suggests.
