When it comes to food art, Instagram superstar naturally.jo is the master. At only 17, he’s amassed more than 1.5 million followers. And judging by his food art, the hype is definitely justified. Focusing exclusively on desserts, his dishes are both appetizing and playful. And then there’s the added bonus: all his desserts are 100% vegan and cruelty-free – who could say no to that?
“I ate animal products for 90 percent of my life, and meat was my favorite thing in the world,” recalled Jose in an interview with Daily Mail Online. “But I was struggling with eating disorders and an unhealthy low-weight.”
“I searched for lots of diets online and then the vegan diet popped up,” he went on to say. “I saw how lots of vegans ate a lot and followed a high-carb diet but still had a perfect fit body, so I started eating less animal products and decided to inform myself about veganism.”
That was when everything changed from him, both mentally and physically. “I was no longer looking to lose more weight, but to stop supporting all forms of animal cruelty,” he says.
But whoever said that veganism has to be tasteless? If there’s one thing that naturally.jo proves is that you don’t have to eat bland food in order to be ethical. Take a look for yourself:
