    The #GirlsWithGluten Instagram Account Is Celebrating Our True Love Of Carbs

    Green smoothies look gross in pictures anyway.

    In a sea of smug "wellness" boasts, a carb-loving revolt is happening on Instagram with people hash-tagging pictures of themselves eating pizza, burgers and such with #GirlsLoveGluten.

    This girl sees your #avotoast (on gluten-free rye, duh), and raises you, a sweet, sweet doughnut.

    #GirlsWithGluten was started by an Instagram account of the same name and features submissions that use the hashtag as well as celebrities enjoying normal, hearty food.

    There's a whole lot of people eating pizza.

    Because who doesn't love pizza?

    "Have your cake and eat it, too 🍰," the bio reads.

    Thanks to the popularity of sites like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, the concept of “wellness” has grown massively in recent years, but the movement is beginning to experience a backlash.

    Journalist Hadley Freeman recently wrote in The Guardian that the pursuit of "wellness" was less about health, and more about "that crucial point on the Venn diagram between aspiration, self-love and slimness."

    While the response to #GirlsWithGluten is mostly positive, there is an inevitable crossover with another popular Instagram account, YouDidNotEatThat.

    YouDidNotEatThat calls bullshit on pictures of very thin women appearing to eat fattening foods, implying that they never eat the foods, "in this mixed up world of too many macarons and ice cream cones used as props."

    Whichever way you look at it, an Instagram feed free from smoothie bowls, where pizza is queen, can't be a bad thing.
