Since I’ve been showing you a lot of Sundays and Mondays, I thought I’d switch things up this week and show you what I ate Saturday instead.

This past Saturday was one of the most fun in recent memory. I seem to be on a roll this month (we’ll see about next week, when I’m working at the hospital…)—thank you for being awesome, October!

I promised myself I’d keep the day work-free, so I started off with another donation-based yoga class, ran some errands, and then met up with some lovely ladies at the Cloisters, where I’d never been, despite living in NYC almost 5 years. I ran home to write some emails and paint my nails before dinner and drinks in Astoria. I may have gotten home a little before midnight, but I’d had such a great, full day, I went to bed super-satisfied—and worn out from all that walking! I enjoyed a lot of good food, too. Not having to rely on the hospital cafeteria is nice.

Breakfast: Pancake topped with non-fat ricotta & homemade cranberry sauce; nectarine slices img 0476 - What I Ate Wednesday #80

Do you try to leave certain days “work-free?” How about turning in early on a Saturday night? What was the best thing you ate last weekend?
