What pulls and pushes a story is the relationship between the details and bigger picture.  You are the protagonist of your story, and if the binding element of your narrative is hope yet you always doubt miracles, then it’d be terribly wrong of you to profess belief in hope.  Society teaches us to harbor cynicism and permits us to grab onto only an inkling of hope.  What would happen if we defied such norms?  The children in the video below seem to do so.  Inspired by them, I decided to call my new healthy recipe “Bowl of Hope.”  These kids fight without rest because they refuse to relinquish Hope, and if they’re able to live each day with courage and joy, then I’m sure the rest of us can do the same.

Ingredients
1 tbsp Vidalia onion vinaigrette
1 handful of alfalfa sprouts
1 cup sunburst tomoatoes
2~3 oz. grilled chicken
1/4 cup red quinoa
1/5 Hass avocado
7 walnut halves

1 serving, ~450 calories
Directions
1. Grill chicken that’s seasoned with some oil oil, salt, and pepper.
2. Boil the red quinoa until the seeds have been full cooked. Drain afterwards.
3. Wash and dry alfalfa sprouts.  Toss them in the onion vinaigrette.
4. Crush the walnut halves into smaller pieces.
5. Layer (from bottom to top): red quinoa, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, grilled chicken, avocado, walnuts
6. Mix and enjoy!

Have a fantastic evening, beautiful readers.  Be inspired. Be hopeful. Be compassionate.

Love,
Pristine Christine
