Not many of us live a lifestyle worthy of a food blogger (Why are their kitchens so perfectly styled? How did they manage to finish that recipe without getting tomato sauce all over their perfect outfit?), but we always aspire to eat like them.
With so many mouth-watering recipes and beautifully plated meals to choose from, one has to wonder: what does a day of dieting like a food blogger really look like? We dug into their flawless Instagram feeds to find out.
