We live in a digital world, and as vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians, we’ve learned to adapt. By using hashtags to describe how healthy, delicious, ethical, easy, and beautiful our plant-based dishes can be, we’ve helped create an enormous amount of interest in them. Just check out the number of followers on the top plant-based Instagram pages and you’ll see what I mean.
Here are 10 plant-based hashtags anyone can use to describe or follow plant-based meals or products:
This hashtag is for food that isn’t processed and for products that have recognizable ingredient lists. It’s reserved for those clean and healthy eaters. If you subsist mostly on Oreos, sausages, and ice cream, then it’s probably not for you.
Put this hashtag in your Instagram story or photos to display the type of foods you eat that have healing properties. Garlic, broccoli, and kale all definitely fall under this category. This is also useful to use if you’ve stopped taking any medications or reversed any diseases or ailments after adopting a plant-based diet.
Powered by Plants is a great hashtag for athletes or performers. Even with movies like the Game Changers coming out and so many athletes turning vegan, there’s still a legion of skeptics when it comes to being able to perform at a high level, physically or mentally, on a plant-based diet. Post this on your next gym selfie or when you land that dream job, and maybe you’ll help change some minds.
This hashtag can be used when you’re showing off a large variety of colors in your salad, yogi bowl, acai bowl, or just any dish that has vibrant hues. Not only can this kind of arrangement be visually appealing, but it’s also generally true that different-colored veggies and fruits have different vitamins. Make sure to include that information in your posts.
Some meals make you drool, and then there are meals that give you a foodgasm. Of course, plenty of healthy dishes can have this effect, but this is often used to describe those treats or comfort food we give ourselves. Plant-based cheesesteaks, lasagna, or cinnamon rolls are all foods that elicit this almost sensual reaction.
Often you hear people say things like, “I wish I could be vegan, but I don’t know how to cook.” It’s one of those headscratchers that makes you wonder if they’ve ever really considered making plant-based meals or if they’re just giving you lip service to avoid considering their food choices. Nowadays, there are delicious plant-based alternatives and recipes for any animal-based meal you can think of. Use this hashtag to remind people of that.
Anyone who’s following food trends knows that eating vegan is the future. Whether it’s the latest plant-based steak alternative or lab-grown meat, a lot of people are investing and creating these amazing products. Use this hashtag to highlight those new innovations.
For those who want to put more of a focus on the ethical impact of our food choices, use this hashtag. Instead of housing mutilated corpses and their stolen secretions, your stomach is a garden, filled with clean and healthy plants. This hashtag probably stems from the George Bernard Shaw quote, “I choose not to make a graveyard of my body for the rotting corpses of dead animals.”
Some people’s go-to meat alternative is tofu. Some prefer Jackfruit, mushrooms, or tempeh. And then there are those who worship the alter of seitan. Use this hashtag to describe that stringy wheat protein that you love so much.
With just a little ingenuity, you can transform any dish with animal products into a plant-based version that tastes just as good, if not better. Craving some Sloppy Joe’s? Substitute lentils in for the beef. French toast? Use soymilk and chia seeds to replace dairy milk and eggs. What’s also great is there’s often a plethora of plants that will replace any animal product. For example, you can use chia seeds, flaxseed, apple sauce, bananas, aquafaba, tofu, chickpea flour, and tapioca starch to replace eggs in baking recipes.
