Blenders are dangerous. A few weeks ago I dropped my very sharp Ninja blender blade on my foot. It sliced right through my tendon that controls my big toe. Ouch. But here’s a yummy smoothie recipe.
I had surgery to reconnect the tendon and I am currently on week 2 of sitting on my couch with my foot elevated all day. I am so thankful for Netflix. Next week stitches come out and it’s back to work! Not being able to do yoga or go for a run has been killing me. I’m pretty sure I cant even touch my toes now and I missed out on all the pretty fall colors in the arboretum.
I did a whole lot of cooking the day before my surgery though. I picked a bunch of really healthy salads and slow cooker meals and prepped them all out, which means I’ve been eating way better than I normally do. I might actually start doing that every week. I’ve also been having a fresh juice every morning. I’ll have to share the ginger beet juice with you later. Amazing.
