Senior Isabelle Bautista documents her vegan lifestyle through her new Instagram account @ib.healthy. According to Bautista, the Instagram page started small.

“I was posting stuff on snapchat,” Bautista said. “People would keep on asking me ‘oh, what’s in this?’ so I figured I would make an instagram for people to follow.”

Bautista’s Instagram page features a variety of different vegan meals, from the snacks she makes after school to entire meals she eats at home.

 “I post a lot of like smoothies and stuff,” Bautista said. “My mom cooks most of my food and I’ll take pictures of that and post them.”

Bautista views veganism as a positive alternative to eating animal products, which led her to pursue her new lifestyle and a social media account.

“If there was a way that I could eat a whole foods diet that’s nutritious and at the same time not contribute to any sort of cruelty or suffering or anything. That’s what really drew me,” Bautista said.

Bautista doesn’t want her account to apply any pressure on people to change their lifestyle, but instead hopes to inspire through it.

“To show people that it’s easy and doable,” Bautista said. “That’s like my main goal.”

Bautista will continue veganism throughout her college years and beyond.

“I don’t see myself ever like going back to not being vegan,”  Bautista said. “It should be doable for me.”

Bautista may not be able to change people’s opinion, but she encourages people to be open-minded.

“Maybe it’s not for everyone, but it is rewarding.” Bautista said.
