Author and food photographer, Lauren Sephton, started A Bright Moment: Healthy Food Blog to build a community that inspired others both inside and outside of the kitchen. She believes that the simplest of recipes can build a lifetime of memories or make “a bright moment” in another’s life. Pulling from both her past memories, like running around as a child with the native tribes of Panama, and new memories, such as down-home cooking through Italy, she is always on the hunt for that secret ingredient to take a classic dish to the next level. From irresistible desserts to easy weeknight dinners, you’ll find a variety of recipes made healthier, and full of cultural flavors to give you a taste of the world!
