The other day I received a comment on my blog that went like this:
I am a 23 year old medical student who finds it especially difficult to cook healthy meals when you’re only cooking for 1, and when time spent cooking is time lost studying. I eat horribly but I try to rationalize it with the fact I run every day. Do you have any basic recommendations for someone looking to eat healthier on a strict budget/time schedule.
Peace, Love, and Medicine, Ryan
Now don’t be fooled, this 23 yr old medical student just happens to be my cousin as well. Thank you Ryan for expressing and publicizing your concern.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Can I just tell you all how happy I am to be Irish on a fun holiday like St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you all enjoyed your St. Patty’s Day; I know I did! And I’m not done enjoying it yet! I was pretty busy last weekend so I couldn’t make my favorite Irish feast which is boiled potatoes, turnips, and cabbage, and of course Irish soda bread. But I do plan on making it this weekend and I’m already one step ahead as I made my Irish soda bread yesterday! This year I’m going to try a vegetarian spin on corned beef so I can pack some protein into my Irish feast! Recommended by Janel, a fellow vegan dietitian, I’m going to experiment with her recipe for cajun tempeh bacon!
On Wednesday, I got my actual st. patty’s fix by going to Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard…
