As January starts to come to a close, we鈥檙e guessing some of you are struggling with your clean eating New Year鈥檚 resolutions. Have no fear, as we are too 鈥 it鈥檚 hard to avoid all the聽delicious snacks in the workplace. And the wine鈥 always the聽wine. Luckily for everyone鈥檚 waistline we recently discovered an Instagram foodie who will push us to the right plate. Hopefully.


Amalia Bussard, an art student at聽Maryland Institute College of Art, began her clean eating journey five years ago, removing unnatural and processed food from her diet. Since then, she has set out to encourage people to live a healthier and more wholesome lifestyle by meshing her two passions: food + art. Her creations look so delicious, we鈥檙e positive you can recreate them and not miss those food guilty pleasures.


Through her Instagram, The Wholesome Bowl, Amalia posts her 鈥渇ood art mandalas鈥 on a daily basis. These culinary art pieces, ranging from breakfast all the way to dessert, consist of solely vegan or聽vegetarian food items. We told you this girl was all about clean eating. And she鈥檚 gonna motivate you to take a trip down that path as well.


Like any artist, every piece Amalia produces and shares with her followers (then hopefully eats) has a description attached. These descriptions are way better than the ones you鈥檒l find at a museum, because they detail everything in the shot聽so you can easily recreate your very own wholesome bowl. Yum!



Make sure to keep your eye (and stomach) on Amalia聽throughout 2015 and beyond to continue聽your own clean eating journey.
