This week the spotlight is shining on Marie Reginato of 8th and Lake! Marie has been working on her popular blog for a few years now, bringing healthy recipes to life that are fun to create. Her culinary passion has always been there, but it took a trip to Italy for her to start creating more exciting and creative recipes. The experience motivated her to continue her education in nutrition and how to cook a wider range of dishes. Now, she is an accomplished cookbook author, recipe developer, food photographer, and cooking video host! We put together 10 recipes from the Food Monster App that are all incredible and developed with your health in mind!
