Best Camera for Food Photography?

Hi! I'm in the market for a new camera and maybe a new lens for my food Instagram account. I'm looking to make the switch from iPhone to DSLR. I currently have an old Canon Rebel XS and a few lenses. So far I haven't been able to achieve my iPhone "style" with my camera.

Per another photographer's recommendation, I recently purchased the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro. I still find that I need to be too far away from the table to get a shot. Does anyone have recommendations on a lens that will allow me to be close to my subject, show good details, but not be too "zoomed"? I'd also like to be able to hold food in the air (see examples)

I'm considering a new camera body as well. Any budget-friendly suggestions there would be helpful! Here are a few examples of my style so it makes more sense:

Thank you!
