It’s not easy to eat well as a medical student, resident or busy physician. Besides setting a good example, eating well is important to feel well when working hard. .. not to mention it really pays off in the long run. You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen to eat well at work but you do have to cook (some) and plan (always).
One of my favorite sites to find healthy, easy, delicious recipes is cookinglight.com. They have sections like Superfast Stir-Fries and Sautés and Quick and Healthy Recipes which are fantastic for busy clinicians. If you aren’t a cook, they also have a section called Cooking 101 where you can learn basic techniques. Before you say you “can’t cook” remember – If you can learn anatomy, you can learn to cook!
