7 Shades of Green – Spring Quinoa Salad

Fist of all, I would like to publicly declare that I haven’t watched that movie (you know which movie I am referring to, right?). And I haven’t read the book either.

7 Shades of Green Spring Quinoa Salad

I’ve heard mixed reviews from friends, starting from “it’s just a movie” to “it’s offensive to women and people should boycott it” and everything in between.

Since I’ve only seen the trailer, I can only tell you that the story seems a bit sinister to me. But then again, I might be wrong. Maybe I should really watch it just to see why it became so overwhelmingly popular.

There is a reason why I am discussing with you a movie I haven’t seen. (You might be thinking that I just don’t know what to write about. Just wait, it’s coming!).

My point in writing about it is this – I really wish people would be so incredibly enthusiastic about their health and well-being as they are about this movie.

Because healthy is the new sexy.

Healthy is the new light, bright, and cheerful.

Like spring…
