Green juices fill the shelves, and cinnamon flavoured kale curbs the sweet tooth. Why? Because the health bunnies of the world are taking over. No longer are rooftop gardens occupied by jugs of Pimms partnered with strawberries and cream. The yogi’s have stepped in and this is now their territory. The local parks are no longer strewn with lager cans and tins of gin. They are now infested with the shortest of Nike pro’s and bright kicks.
Summer is here, and our new governing body are in their element. But where are we finding our Kings and Queens? What makes the greatest great?
Instagram. That’s what.
It’s the latest social media phenomenon filled with rainbow salads, and protein plates. Whether you’re the bendiest or the strongest there’s a place for your passion in this ever growing community. And that is why it’s taking over!
