Sebastian & Rosa must be my guardian angels, they let me pick up their CSA share this week. There are more onions than I know what to do with so… pickled onions!
The color’s not the most pleasing but my walnut-lentil “pâté” is pretty excellent. #vegan
Thank you, hospital microwave, for your helpful cooking time suggestions. Now I know what to do when I need to heat 8 oz. of baked beans.
Banana cornbread. #trustme
Tacos with scrambled tofu and peppers, roasted corn/apricot/black bean salsa, a lot of thai chilies.
Everything spicy for @kjaleph birthday week! (at Mission Chinese Food)
Welcome back to running and also to heat exhaustion.
Willy Wonka was playing last night at the Brooklyn Bridge Movies in the Park. It was 64 degrees outside. Michelle brought a curtain as a blanket. And it started raining towards the end. It was all great.
There are not enough words to express how badly I need this work week to end. LET’S MOVE, FRIDAY.
Best friends are the best.
Last one, I promise. Magical vacation. This is what happy feels like - I’ve missed happy.
Tucson is wayyy more than just a desert.
The last month has simultaneously been both the most stressful and the most relaxing 30 days in a long time.
I took the MCAT, submitted my primary medical school application (23 schools!), have begun working on my secondary application, took a long vacation, began working as a research assistant, and…. received my MCAT scores yesterday.
I’ve scored well enough that I don’t need to retake the test and for that I am incredibly happy. MCAT: check.
In more exciting news - I went on an incredible trip to Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the American Southwest. Tucson, you are magical. Boulder, you are a dream. Sedona, I can’t get enough of you. New Mexico.. you were a little depressing, but delicious food.
In especially exciting news, in Tucson I had a chance to meet Sarah (AlmostGreenMommy, although I will forever know her as smaller-n-smaller). Sarah was one of the first blogs I followed on Tumblr and we’ve been following each other for a few years now. It was so awesome to meet her and her hilarious husband Pete in person!
This lovely lady is having a baby in the next month, yet she braved the Tucson heat to meet up. Sarah, so glad we got to meet!
I’ll post some vacation photos and spam your dashboards momentarily. Here’s to updating this blog more often now that I’m a semi-person for again.

Michelle is a: Postbac premed student, former documentary producer, vegetarian, runner, & food-lover.
My life revolves around food. Cooking food, eating food, discussing the politics of food. We’re surrounded by so many false advertisements and misconceptions about nutrition, its difficult to know where the truth lies. This blog is where I share my food choices, recipes, and outlook on healthy-living (and some quips about my path towards becoming a doctor).
