It's easy to turn decadent or glutinous holidays, like "National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day" into opportunities to encourage your followers to live more healthfully.

For instance, you could share a healthy alternative recipe that follows your recommended dietary guidelines. Share a vegan ice cream recipe, or your favorite gluten-free cookie recipe. Or even share your favorite "healthy" or small batch brand.

On the flip side, you could talk about the importance of splurging every once in a while.

Don't forget that posting on Instagram Stories is a great way to keep your followers entertained and connected.
Stories have become increasingly popular, and if you're not using them, you're missing a great opportunity to get in front of your current followers, and new eyes, in more ways - and to encourage interaction.
Stories also offer a great opportunity to encourage your followers to visit the post in your feed to read more, or click the link in your bio to visit your blog, website, or current offering.
