Blueberry Tofu Smoothie ~ Tuesday’s Table
Dear sweet blogging friends I hope your week has been lovely. I have been so busy this week and not had a lot of time to spare. We are busily preparing for a brand new school year and purchasing our supplies/books. We are excited to begin and hope to do so within the next week or two!
I have been feeling the stress and strain of the constantly busy days. I have been so fatigued, sick and achy. I fear I am in a bit of a flare. This old fibromyalgia always picks the worst time to show up. I often feel like it is a living, breathing thing in the room…one that is uninvited. I’m always thinking…”Oh, it’s you again…hope you don’t plan on staying around here for long.” Most of the time the old fibro just shakes its head and says,
“I’ll stay as long as I like, you just better get used to me.” I have learned acceptance is the key to peace. I am thankful that I have a sweet family who loves and supports me through it all.
I woke up this morning in so much pain, that I had tears running down my face. It is embarrassing this pain. It always knocks the breath out of me when I least expect it. It is on these mornings that I wonder about the wisdom behind taking no meds! What I wouldn’t give for a little relief some days. It is on these mornings that I especially love to make myself a smoothie. It is a quick, healthy breakfast and gives me that added boost I need to make it through the morning. I like to feel as if I am nourishing my body through this sickness.
As promised earlier in the week. I wanted to share with you another recipe for Tuesday’s Table. I know it is Thursday…but better late than never! =) So below is my favorite recipe for a blueberry tofu smoothie. Enjoy!
