1. Two Raw Sisters

Christchurch-based sisters Rosa and Margo are on a mission to change people's perception of plant-based foods, and our Instagram feeds are all the more drool-worthy because of it. Through their workshops, talks, catering and e-books, the Two Raw Sisters are here to prove that raw food doesn't have to be boring, expensive or difficult.

2. The Curious Avocado

17 year-old Ella, a.k.a. The Curious Avocado, has one of the most colourful insta feeds we've ever seen. Filled with her own incredible plant-based creations, Ella uses original recipes to inspire others to experiment with their food. And when it looks this good, it won't take much to convince you.

3. Georgie Moore

Georgie Moore of @georgiana.banana is another Christchurch-based vegan foodie who has us seeing green. The nourishing bowls that fill her grid are enough to get us craving some plant-based goodness, and that's before mentioning her heavenly sweet treats! Vegan fudge brownie cookies, anyone?

4. Mamta Govind

We're obsessed with Mamta Govind's mind-blowing baking, which shows that plant-based food doesn't have to be restrictive - you can indulge to your heart's content! Cakes, donuts, lamingtons, cupcakes... all vegan and all incredible. If you live in Dunedin you're in luck, these baked delights are available at selected local cafés.

5. The Nourishing Baker

Helmed by Sharna McElligott, The Nourishing Baker is the Instagram account of vegan Tauranga café The Nourished Eatery. Get your daily dose of food envy by scrolling through these sweet vegan treats, and maybe start planning your next trip to the Bay of Plenty.
