Blueberry Whole Wheat Cornbread

A potentially debilitating aspect of student life is feeling guilty when you’re not studying. But thankfully in the quantum-physical, alien-infiltrated pages of a Chinese science fiction novel, I came across words that resonated, “Make time for life, for life won’t make time.” – Liu Cixin, The Dark Forest. This weekend marks week four out of six of my Family Medicine rotation. I spent Saturday with friends, learning it’s possible to overmelt cheese #aligotamateurs, raining sweat under the Umbrella Sky, listening to God’s Plan played on a harp at high tea, and laughing out loud at Incredibles 2 #AuntieEdnaFtw. It was a great day followed up with Sunday morning baking! Today’s recipe is a continuation of the healthier breakfast theme, complete with juicy, popping blueberries, hearty whole wheat, and sunshine-yellow cornmeal.
