What do you do to get bikini ready? I run, hike, practice yoga, and go to dance school. I drink lots of water & stick to a fresh mostly vegan diet with some salmon & seafood thrown in. I stay away from processed foods, gluten & refined sugar.
If you were to design a bathing suit, what would it look like? Something “Vargas-esqe” like a navy bikini with white little polka dots. The bandeu top would have a center tie & and the low cut bottoms would have side ties.
What do you love to eat that is “healthy”? I am crazy about broccolini; love it sauteed with chili flakes on top. I also love grilled salmon and frozen strawberries and blueberries are a yummy dessert. Kelp noodles are a new favorite of mine.
What is something no one knows about you? Oooh, I’ll never tell. ;)
