Breathtaking flower fruit spinach salad!

This delicious mouthful of healthy Fitspiration will absolutely take your breath away. I brought this baby to a party this weekend and all my friends LOVED it!

It’s easy, healthy and BEAUTIFUL (if I do say so myself… and I do!)

Did I mention it was cheap too? My fridge is almost always filled with fruit (since I make fruit smoothies every morning), so I used all the left-over fruits I had in there, and created this flowerful beauty!

My boyfriend brought in some lovely flowers from my front garden, so I threw those in for some extra color too.

If you’re having a hard time getting yourself motivated to workout during summer, remember your goals. WHY do you want to workout? Imagine how you’ll feel tomorrow when you look back at today. I bet you’ll say “Why didn’t I just get up and do it?” You’re always going to regret the things you don’t do.

If all else fails; get up, put on your bikini, and look in the mirror. If you’re happy with what you see, sit back down and keep reading my fabulous blog anyway. If you’re not happy and you want to see improvement…. GET YOUR BUTT OFF THE COMPUTER AND GO WORKOUT! .. Then come read my blog when you get back 🙂

Adventures with a Dragon Fruit

After 2 years of searching, I finally found my very own Dragon Fruit!!!

Getting my little hands on this beautiful-pink-exotic fruit has been on my “Food Bucket List” for quite some time now. When I saw a basket full of pink Dragon Fruits at the grocery store, I could hardly believe my eyes. The moment I spotted the dragon fruit, I began to run towards it at full speed (which wasn’t very fast considering I was wearing heels as usual) as I pinched myself along the way to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! My blonde hair flowing in the wind, dodging housewives, kids and grandmas right and left (insert dramatic music here.) In my imagination, I pictured myself fighting off hundreds of housewives to get my hands on one of these… but the other people in the store seemed to care less that there was a Dragon Fruit in their presence. Obviously they didn’t know what they were missing.

Finally, when I got my hands on one of these precious gems, it was if the heavens opened up the grocery store ceiling, and the angels started singing! I grabbed my phone, and asked the nearest housewife to snap a picture of me kissing it, yes right in the middle of the store. I have no shame… and proud of it!

My first instinct was to FILL MY WHOLE SHOPPING CART with Dragon fruits, but after laying eyes on the $5.99 price tag, that instinct flew right out of the hole in the ceiling that the singing angels made.

After texting all my best friends a picture of my juicy pink victory, I went right home and cut it open with my boyfriend.

This is what they look like inside-

Unfortunately, after 2 years of searching… I didn’t like the taste. It tasted like the green part of a watermelon that’s left over after you’ve eaten all the sweet pink parts. Perhaps it hadn’t been ripened yet, but I wasn’t about to spend another $5.99 to find out. Next time, I’m going to try and make a smoothie out of a Dragon Fruit, maybe I’ll like that better.

That concludes my adventures with a Dragon Fruit, now time to find another exotic fruit to add to my Food Bucket List!
