This Instagram Account Parodies All The Clean-Eating Pics In Your Feed Hero Image

Sure, Instagram can be a supportive community, with accounts that post words of inspiration, honest photos of peoples' personal journeys, and even celebrates women's stretch marks. Your feed can remind you that you're not alone.

But most of the time, it's not anything like that. In fact, it can make you feel badly about yourself — for not looking like that model, or not being able to travel as much as that guy, or not eating as "clean" as that woman does.

"It's a brownie — not a bank robbery!"

Comedian Bella Younger was sick of feeling that way. "I'd been trawling Instagram for about 4 hours and I was like, 'Why is everyone on a beach doing yoga? How many ways can you arrange fruit on top of porridge? What the hell are these hashtags?'" she told mindbodygreen in an email.

That's when she knew she had the perfect material for parody — and @deliciouslystella was born.

On the Instagram account, Younger posts photos of her not-so-healthy eating habits in order to mock the clean-eating-obsessed social media users that have inundated our feeds.

Avocado and eggs is such a.great breakfast. . I could instagram it over and over and over again. I've said before that I struggle with making the perfect poached egg! Thank god it's hallowe'en and I've got @cadburyuk screme eggs. They're ready made, quick and so delicious! #eatclean #screamqueens #gettheglow #avocoado #eggs #healthy #health #wellness #breakfast #treat #avotoast #deliciouslystella

But Younger wants to be clear that she's not trying to single anyone out; her intention is not to bully. She just wants people to be able to "laugh at the silliness of it," she explained. "Luckily I've got some amazing clean eaters as fans so people seem really willing to laugh at themselves. I just want people to give themselves a break and stop using the terms 'guilty' and 'cheat day.' It's a brownie — not a bank robbery!"

Day one of my #sweetox is going so well. I feel so energised and strong. It's good to eat lots of different colours for a balanced diet so I make sure to eat a packet of fruit pastilles every day. Have a sweet week everyone! #eatclean #sweetox #detox #sugar #diet #gettheglow #diettipsbystella

As for her least favorite #EatClean trend? Vegetables masquerading as cakes. "If I want cake I'll eat cake," she said. "Cacao nibs and sweet potato does not a cake make. And what the hell is bee pollen?!"

I'm busy writing my Edinburgh show so I thought I'd break up the day by making some delicious almond butter. It wasn't that great on its own so I suggest adding an accompaniment like toast. #eatclean #recipe #almondbutter #health #stella

Amazing workout today with the inspirational @faydec ❤️ check out my #fab #abs #gettheglow #eatclean #strongnotskinny

Loving my brand new recipe for delicious homemade crispbread! Full of salty goodness and completely rye free 😉 #eatclean #gettheglow #thehealthylife #deliciouslystella

Just finished an amazing workout and I can't wait to try this new #greenjuice! It was in a different aisle in the supermarket to the ones I usually go for and its slightly soapy to the taste but apparently it's perfect for living a #clean lifestyle. Have a sweaty day! #eatclean #gettheglow #nourish #cleanse #juice #green #wod #gym #workout #fitfam #fitspo #instafit #everyonesweatswhentheyexercise #wellness #vibes #deliciouslystella

Been milking this bad boy for days and Ive still got nothing! #youcantmilkanalmond #eatclean #givethecowsachance

Such a delight foraging these blackberries from the pic n mix stand this morning. They're in season @haribo and they taste so sweet! My top secret foraging spot is the London trocadero but you can find them at any @odeoncinemas near you! Have a beautiful day! #eatclean #forage #nature #glow #blackberry #countryside #breakfast #love #organic #wellness #picnmix #deliciouslystella

I don't know about you guys but ever since the sun's come out I have been dying to get that natural glow. I'm all about using what's in your kitchen cupboards and this delicious Nutella glides on just like fake tan. I hope it doesn't streak! #eatclean #nutella #gettheglow #faketan #naturalproducts #beautytipsbystella

Hey guys! It's Friday so I thought I'd treat you all with an exclusive recipe from my upcoming book 'every day's a treat day.' Lots of you take pictures of porridge but I promise you this makes it not taste of wallpaper paste. ❤️Just use chocolate milk, chocolate drops, hundreds and thousands and glacier cherries for a healthy, nourishing and most importantly delicious breakfast. ❤️ #eatclean #gettheglow #healthychoices #porridge #deliciouslystella

Leg day today and I've been working on my squats in my favourite place - the fridge. Now it's time to shake this protein that I found! #eatclean #gettheglow #wod #workout #strongnotskinny #instafit #squats #wod #eatcleantraindirty #girlswholift #proteinshake #deliciouslystella
