It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, my apologies. On Monday last week I had to go in for flexor tendon repair surgery after cutting my hand washing dishes. The surgery has left me with only one usable hand while recovering. Since I’m a righty, the struggle’s been real.
Typing one-handed, and trying to navigate photography the same way (in addition to everything else) has been a challenge, but I have a new-found appreciation for the little things. Yesterday I managed to make a smoothie bowl on my own and photograph it too (tiny victory)! It might’ve taken me double the time to do it, but it sure felt like a big accomplishment. I initially shared the post on instagram but it turned out so yummy, I wanted to blog the full recipe here.
The smoothie bowl is vibrant with a hint of tart from the berries and sweet from the banana. It’s made with almond milk to keep it vegan/dairy free. The chia seeds and frozen blackberries add a delightful textured garnish and the color scheme transported me to a tropical place, giving me vacation vibes while it snowed outside.
Yes to simple, delicious and quick breakfast/lunch options. It’s also a great healthy treat to enjoy while healing.
Smoothie Bowl love.

The unexpected surgery has forced me to keep things simple, but I’m not mad about it. Sometimes less is more and simplicity is chic. My life could definitely be more simplified, so perhaps that’s the silver lining and lesson attached to this entire experience. There’s always some good we can pull from challenges in our life amiright? Furthermore, challenges often inspire us to make changes for the better. I’m grateful for good health and hopeful that by taking care of myself and eating right I can heal quickly.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy this bowl of deliciousness. I’ll be keeping the posh shop closed while I recover, but plan to be posting here consistently again.
