Follow for the Recipes: Montanez is a devoted foodie who puzzles through ways to make her favorite foods work for various diets. “Healthy food doesn’t have to taste bad,” she says. Luckily for us, Montanez created a healthful dupe of Rama Thai’s massaman curry.

Follow for the Wanderlust: As a former Oregonian, Montanez; her husband, Joe; and their pup, Kramer, are avid campers. They love to explore places like Hawksbill Crag and Devil’s Den State Park. Want more outdoor inspo? Montanez also controls the Park Board’s Instagram, @theparkboard.

Follow for Pretty Plates: “As good as a dish can taste, it should look that pretty, too,” Montanez says. She turned her film and digital arts background into a feed full of well styled food photos, making us crave comfort foods with a less sinful calorie count.
