7 Pinterest Accounts to Motivate Your Nutrition Consulting Clients

Ask any recipe-hunting person in the kitchen trying to make a healthy meal, and they’re not going to be sifting through old-school cookbooks. These days people take selfies with their food, post pics of every meal, and even share videos with cooking tips, recipes, and how-to demonstrations. It’s exciting and engaging. And that’s what you want when you’re running a nutrition consulting business to help people dial in their diet.

There’s more than one online resource to point your clients to for healthy food ideas, keep them motivated, and avoid reverting to their old ways. But one of the best places to find healthy and tasty recipes, dieting strategies, and mouthfuls of motivation is Pinterest.
