Blueberry Almond Macaroons

I’m now on my last rotation of third year of medical school… surgery! The operating room is a special place that suits certain people. While I’m fascinated by today’s surgical possibilities, I’m just not one of those people. As a medical student, I get to “assist” the surgeon, i.e. hold instruments, suction, cut strings, and put in a few stitches. I have yet to experience the rite of passage that is being the med student that passes out in the OR (*knocks on wood), and I intend to keep it that way by keeping well-nourished with surgery snacks! Today’s recipe is just a few simple ingredients for a glycemic burst any time, any place.
