How the Mighty Have Fallen

I used to cook a lot. In fact, my initial intent of having this blog was to show how easy it is to cook healthy vegan meals. But lately, I've done so little cooking. Almost none, in fact. Much of the reason is, ironically, time -- balancing a new job as a cardiology attending, working out, studying for my interventional boards, and occasionally spending time with family and friends. On top of that, it's so easy to call up Green Leaves for a seitan wrap and a miso soup to go.



Tonight, for the first time in a while, I cooked. I sauteed broccoli and onion in my wok with General Tso's sauce and paired it with some pre-cooked wild rice from Trader Joe's.
Once the boards are over, I'm going to cook more. I miss it.

I do hope you will indeed have more time to cook - it's so therapeutic (at least, for me it is, haha). your home-cooked dinner is a sign of more delicious meals to come :0)

cooking is great - very relaxing and rewarding. BUT! when i was in LA over the summer i ate at greenleaves and i LOVED it, so i can't blame you at all for wanting to order from there. they had some kind of dish with mock chicken and pancakes. sounds weird, i know, but it was awesomeee. i wish there were more places like that in new jersey. eating vegan in LA is great.

I know what you mean! I've been so busy studying for midterms that when I baked a vegetarian lasagna this week my roommate said: "What? You cooked? But you... DON'T... cook!" Ahaha, little does she know, but I actually like keeping my culinary abilities secret cause if people know you can cook then they're always asking you to make stuff for them!
