Clean eating has grown significantly in popularity over the last year or so, encouraging people to ditch chemically enhanced and processed foods from their diet.
Self-taught chef, Marie makes eating clean simple with her new cooking guide, “Eating Clean in Costa Rica.” Readers will be able to enjoy her internationally inspired cuisine that can be found at Blue Osa: yoga retreat and spa, in Costa Rica, in the comfort of their own home.
Chef Marie, an original property owner of Blue Osa, was so inspired by founders Aaron and Adam’s vision that she remains the ‘mother’ of the Blue Osa family several years later.
Marie’s favorite cuisines are French and Mexican with her favorite dishes being Coq au Vin and Sopa de Pescado.
“I use a pinch of originality, a spoonful of savoir faire and much, much love,” Chef Marie said.
Marie only uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients that are well known and widely accessible to create her simple, tasty and healthy recipes. She caters to most health and dietary needs by including gluten-free, low-fat and vegetarian options. Being born in Algeria and raised in Biarritz, Marie uses her French roots as influence in her farm-to-table recipes.
“Knowing how to eat is the beginning of knowing how to live,” Chef Marie said.
Filled with vibrant photos throughout, a convenient conversion table and easy-to-follow instructions, this cookbook will surely meet readers’ healthy eating needs.
