Zesty AF was born out of my love for food, health, life & photography! As a multi-passionate person, I take an almost child-like delight in exploring all the things that light up my brain.
This is the place where I record those moments in life; from food & travel photography, recipes, to life updates. Basically, what the good 'ol journaling used to be.
I also run a very successful Mexican Food blog MUY DELISH and I hope you check it out and give it some love!
I'm Ana Frias, a food photographer, recipe developer and blogger based in Chandler, Arizona.
this is MY place where passion meets
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
Meanwhile I was working in the corporate world as a System Configuration Analysts while also running "Ana Frias Photographer" & "Muy Delish".
Life takes many turns, it has many ups & downs and for some us, the journey is long. But deep down inside I knew someday I would be working on my passion solely: Photography & my Food Blog!
So I kept working on my side hustles to make them full time one day!
Finally, at the end of 2020 I quit my corporate job to focus on my dream and be a solopreneur. Best decision ever!
Photography has been my life-long passion & in 2003, I started a portrait photography business that I worked as a side hustle for years! In 2011 I started my food blog Muy Delish (back then it was Fit, Fun & Delish) as a hobby to record my new healthy recipes that I developed thru my fitness journey.
Naturally, I quickly fell in love with food photography!
I was drawn into this new genre of photography because of how challenging it was. Like every great photograph, food photography requires excellent composition, unique lighting skills, passion, style, improvisation and a great subject.

What transformed my views about food
It's easier (and cheaper!) to educate yourself about your wellness than it is for doctor visits.
we need to stop animal suffering, help the environment, and
take care of our own health.
There is power in every leaf, in every bite, in every sip.
I am a wife and a mother of two and they are the best two things I get to be. I really don’t ask for much to be happy—lazy days with my family, time and space to do what I love most (photography & cooking), really good cookies on hand at times, and a fun vacation to explore a beautiful new place.
