In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No Apologies.”

I really admire people who take a good care of their physicality. Healthy food, exercise! I admire their focus, stamina, and commitment! It takes a lot of willpower for me to give up my daily menu of rice, chicken, and more. Should I apologize for good food? Take a pick from my faves at Sala One Nine, an authentic Spanish restaurant in the Flatiron district.
