Every day I have a salad and hot tea for lunch. Unless salad isn’t available, then I eat what I can because there is little time to be too picky in this life. But, the other day, our neighbor, Adam, gave us a bowl full of sunflower sprouts.
The sunflower sprouts made for a nice topping on my salad.
Adam grew the sunflower sprouts himself. Sunflower sprouts are packed with vitamins A, D, E, and the B complex, besides having potassium and being high in calcium and protein.
Although I still eat some meat, these facts jolt my mind to realize that I can live without certain foods. I am also reminded of the Bible story of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. The men requested vegetarian meals after the chief official ordered them to eat royal food and drink wine. They got their request and after eating vegetables and drinking water, Daniel and his buddies proved that they were stronger in appearance than the men who ate the upscale diet. (Daniel 1)
