Because my bed is calling me (I’ve been sleep deprived this past busy week) I will keep this short and sweet: I legitimately counseled a patient today! For real. It was incredible. I explained to my patient’s mother the testing options and what we, that’s right WE, recommended for her daughter. It was an incredible feeling. Oh yea, and I ate some yummy things like plum and blueberry overnight oat bran topped with honey.
A small sampler plate of crackers, colby jack, venison sausage, strawberries, and an orange cranberry muffin almost 6 hours after breakfast because my patient took over three hours to see.
A piece of toast with sweetened peanut butter ricotta cheese (don’t knock it till you have tried it) and apple butter.
A handful of super sweet grape tomatoes.
A large plate of tempeh, cheddar, and salsa nachos with a side of sliced, raw, broccoli stems and mustardy hummus.
And a delectable red velvet cupcake from Thursday’s happy hour.
So, as I mentioned yesterday, I’m going vegetarian for the week and I’ll admit, today was a FAIL. I was so hungry by 2p (breakfast was at 7:30) and so flustered by my patient’s mother who was incredibly talkative that I totally forgot I was supposed to be vegetarian and I had that thin slice of venison sausage seen above. Oh well, the way I see it, it was one little piece. I promised to myself to be more committed and I’ve already done a bunch of research for recipes to make this week so I won’t be caught off guard. In fact, tomorrow I’m making red curry lentils and vegetables and Mary is bringing the quinoa. That’s right, Saturday night dinner date anyone?? Sounds like a plan to me. =D

Phrase: Je suis végétarien.
Translation: I am vegetarian.
Story: I think this is pretty self-explanatory given the last two posts. Definitely a phrase I can use in the next couple of days!
Questions: What would you miss most if you went vegetarian?
Have you ever had venison in any form?
