Oh, I need to celebrate! Wonderful news to share here. I’m just so glad that my cast was removed yesterday…..yay…*BIG smiles*. The surgeon was pleased with my recovery and told me I don’t need to see him again. How happy to hear that! I was also taken off my medication even though I actually need to take another week. I think the physiotherapist looked surprised. Just in case you are wondering what I am talking about here, I had a complete rupture of my Achilles tendon while playing badminton about 5 weeks ago. I had to go for surgery to get it fixed.
Well, now I have to learn how to walk with my foot down, elevated at the sole with a thick sponge. I need crutches to help me with that. It’s actually quite torturing trying to walk because the repaired tendon feels extremely stiff. There are other stretches that I need to do everyday. When I see the physiotherapist again in 2 weeks time, I REALLY hope that my tendon would be flexible enough then so that I can be off my crutches and get to drive again.
I’m just really excited to share a very easy, refreshing and healthy drink which I made to contain my joy. You only need blueberries, raspberries and oranges with some sugar and pinch of salt. I finished all my strawberries otherwise I would add strawberries too. It was just SO good. This is a sure thirst quencher especially for those who are enjoying a hot summer. And best of all, you don’t need a juicer to make it, just an orange squeezer.
This is what I used for 1 serving:
Juice of 1 big orange
A small handful of raspberries (crush it with a spoon)
A small handful of blueberries
2t unrefined sugar
pinch of sea salt
Put all the above in a glass. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and salt. Enjoy.
You can of course go wild with your creativity using other fruits to mix with the orange juice.
I believe it’s all the juices, fruits and simple, healthy food that has helped my leg to heal quicker. I hope you are eating a healthy diet and living a healthy lifestyle. Let’s not wait until we are sick before we start. It may be too late.
Have fun cooking and baking and I’ll see you in my next post.
