With nothing but cardiopulmonary shtuff in my head right now, let's look at some of the heart-healthy eats & treats I've had today since lunch.
Cherries. I love cherries. Minus my purple tongue... Kitty Gizmo loves cherries too??
Gizzie didn't actually eat my cherries. She just likes to be photographed :)
And you can't be a medical student without appreciating coffee's
An hour later, I heard my stomach growl... Either I'm hungry or just stressed? Both?
So I ran to the kitchen and made me a bowl of fruit
I am so grateful to be living at home while attending med school. My mom and grandma take such good care of me!
Tonight's dinner was prepared by the best grandma in the whole wide world. My grandma doesn't believe in leftovers or frozen meals. Yes, she is one of those! She knows exactly how much to make for every member of the family, and she cooks with fresh ingredients. Best of all, while she makes many traditional Russian dishes, like borscht and perojki, she loves to experiment, too! Her motto - she works with what she has!
Looks like tonight she had halibut, string beans, and cabbage!
And yes, I'm spoiled.
- Halibut cooked in olive oil with onions, dried dill, and tzatziki
- String beans
- Sautéed cabbage (with onions and a squeeze of ketchup!)
And after such a lovely time with my family, I once again ran away to my books!
Have a great evening!
