My day was so bad
that I made a green smoothie for dinner (I’m feeling run down and wanted a vitamin boost) and I SERIOUSLY considered putting alcohol in it.
You should be eating these
Because, seriously, damn.
Oh look, I made chocolate chip muffins

I wish there were some way I could just watch every single Weekend Update with Tina and Amy back to back. I feel like I need that in my life.

This just made me lol. Also, if anyone has a gif of Tom rattling off his list of foods- I WANT! “Can I get apps and ‘zerts?” Tom: ‘Zerts are what I call desserts. Tray-trays are entrees. I call sandwiches sammies, sandoozles, or Adam Sandlers. Air conditioners are cool blasterz, with a z. I don’t know where that came from. I call cakes big ol’ cookies. I call noodles long-ass...

I was never a compulsive exerciser. I actually avoided working out during my ED because it increased my appetite and also gave me terrible heart palpitations. Now that I actually, you know, eat like a normal person I absolutely love working out. It makes me feel so strong. I’m not sure how to put this into words, but it makes me feel- embodied. Like, actually in my body. Even in recovery I...
These are pure poetry. Seriously, they are the best thing I have put in my face in a looooong time. Sometimes you just have to make a dessert with nothing healthy about it- just butter, sugar, flour, chocolate and nuts. They made me very happy. INGREDIENTS 1/2 cup of butter, melted 1 cup of tightly packed dark brown sugar 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 teaspoon of vanilla 1/2 teaspoon baking...

Vegan Quinoa Cookies
One of my all-time besties is a vegan and he lives in NYC. Occasionally I will make vegan treats and ship them to him, because food=love and I love him. He saw the pictures of the Oatmeal Quinoa Chocolate-Chip cookies I made last week and requested I veganize them for him. I was totally psyched! Here’s the result: They turned out delicious! Vegan cookies aren’t that different...

sirgoodtoaster asked: I just read your bio on the side of your page, I am glad your recovery is going well and I can tell you are very strong!
catsandscience said: Huh. I wonder how your dad and I would have gotten along. I’m getting my PhD in Molecular Genetics and my undergrad minor was history. I nearly did another minor in classics. Plus, in higher mathematics, there is always room for an argument. That’s awesome! My dad probably would have liked you. He was really a renaissance man in a lot of ways- he had season tickets to...
Some things just make sense
Tonight I made dinner. I know it sounds simple, even boring, to make dinner- especially if you make it pretty much every night, like I do. But I never get tired of the ritual. Coming in from a busy day full of stresses of every kind and retreating to the quiet of the kitchen is a such a relief for me. In my job there is very little certainty. Therapists spend a lot of time in the “gray...

SOMEONE ARREST THIS WOMAN.
Okay, they are really Whole Wheat Oatmeal-Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies, but that’s a mouthful. I know they sound kind of gross, but I PROMISE that they are delicious. The thing is, they aren’t really “healthy”, per se, in that they are made with lots of butter and sugar. But they are healthy-ish in that there’s all kinds of fiber and protein from the quinoa, oats,...

Meatless Monday- Asparagus and Onion Frittata
I don’t get to go meat-free very often, because my boyfriend is a shameless carnivore who believes he will wither and die without animal flesh at almost every meal. That being said, I like to eat meat on the regular too, and I feel like my body needs it. The few times I have tried to eliminate meat entirely I felt tired and a bit listless. I think I run best on a high-protein diet. However,...
Was pretty good. I made gluten-free spaghetti with meat sauce and roasted asparagus. This is just one of those easy, quick meals that you can put together with no forethought or planning. Thus, it appeals to me. You just have to have a few pantry and freezer staples to put it together. 1 package spaghetti noodles (I used some gluten-free noodles I got at Whole Foods approximately 10 years ago.) ...
