How to Take Insta-Worthy Peanut Butter Photos

It’s no secret that Instagram is one of the most visual social media platforms – it’s known to be the channel where people share beautiful images that inspire others to travel, try new recipes and share the most Instagram-able moments of their lives. Food is one of the most commonly “Instagramed” items, and hashtags like #foodgram and #EatingForTheInsta are increasingly popular and almost always trending. Often the most Instagramed foods feature bright colors, unique textures or a twist on a beloved food, such as rolled ice cream.

You don’t have to leave the Instagram-able dishes to the pros. Spicing up your Instagram feed and adding beauty shots of your favorite foods doesn’t have to be hard. When taking pictures of your Instagram-worthy meals, try various angles, look for natural lighting and incorporate color when you can! Also, follow @PeanutRD for simple and sensational compositions featuring America’s favorite nut butter.

Peanut butter can be the perfect ingredient to add to a variety of recipes. Not only is it nutrious and flavorsome, it can add the Instagram-able element your dishes are missing through sauces, swirls, drizzles and so much more. Ready to try it at home?
