That Zest Life


Hey y’all! My name is Megan and I’m a single working Texas girl living in an overpriced apartment in Seattle. By day I work for a travel company to help people experience the world and by night I’m combing through Instagram trying to find a new recipe to make (probably like most of you). I love an Asian inspired dish, eating my way through my travels, and spending time with those I love over food and drink.

The point of this blog is to help you navigate the beautiful world of perfectly photographed Instagrammed food. I want to show you how you can make the recipes you love on your feed in your own home with your own flair. At That Zest Life you’ll learn how to tweak recipes you find to make them more delicious and help them fall in line with your dietary needs. Found an awesome new random ingredient at a farmer’s market? I’ll show you how to incorporate those random ingredients. If you’re just looking for easy, healthy and delicious recipes, you’ll find those here too. I’m always trying to be *mostly Paleo *mostly sugar free *mostly whole foods *mostly dairy-free *mostly gluten free.

If you make something you find here, or if you’ve incorporated a special ingredient you found into a recipe in a new way, tag @thatzestlife on Instagram! I’d love to see what you’re cooking and what you’re loving.

I also share a lot about my life on my personal instagram @zestygingersnap. You’ll find lots of randomness about my day, my travels, and my friends. I’d love to connect with you there as well!
