Don’t Ever Stop

In honor of What I Ate Wednesday, here are some shots of what I’ve been lucky enough to nibble on inhale.

salad with chicken

healthy half salad

Layered salads delicately decorated in feta, avocado, roma tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, grilled chicken, flakey salmon, crunchy pita chips, and tossed in a silky vinaigrette.

And the best of dippers.

Belly Dancer Salad

Chic falafel.

Compliments of the talented chefs at Basil, I dove into the salad above for dinner tonight. It’s coined the Belly Dancer. Perhaps it’s a salad fit for dancers. The artfully tossed dish certainly left me in the mood to dance.

I bet you never thought healthy food could look so desirable.

grape leaves

Maybe I spoke too soon. Don’t judge a leave by it’s cover. These guys taste like buttery hunks of spiced rice.


You can learn a lot from shooting pictures of food, like the more you’re around it, the more you want it. And it’s always sinful to skip dessert.

There were bites of tiramisu yesterday and baklava today. You know my sweet tooth can’t be tamed.

Layers of crispy fillo dough and sweetened pistachios. Irresistible.

A dessert a day keeps the doctor away.

I have one hell of a sweet tooth, but I’ll take that over a lot of other things.

sweets over drinks

Thank goodness for that gym flo and constantly challenging myself.

I’m embracing the handstand journey just as I’ll continue trying to make grape leaves look mouth watering in photos. Persistence is the name of my game.


What are you working on in your fitness routine? Handstands anybody? 🙂

    LOL!!!! “Grape leafs look like little poops” – haha … oh so true!!

    There certainly ARE way-way-worse things than one hell of a sweet tooth!
    Just keep things in balance and keep believing that you absolutely never DO fail until you stop trying! 😉
    I LOVE that!!

    Trying to work on being more flexible and that’s just a slow process 🙂 I have an epic sweet tooth and will choose that over drinks any day. Some people think it’s strange but that’s what I like.
