Shoulder Surgery Progress ~ 3 Weeks

Hi there! What!? 2 posts in 2 days??? I know crazy, right? 😜 Haha! I'm just rolling with it... 

Well, I thought I'd give you an update on the progress I've made since my shoulder surgery.

It's been three weeks since I had my rotator repair, which also included removing calcium deposits and a bone spur.  Let me tell you, this has been quite the journey. There have been ups and downs, but I am moving right along. The hardest part for me has been being strapped to this sling for the last three weeks.

Healthy Banana Blender Muffins

Healthy Banana Blender Muffin

Hi there! Today I'm going to share one of the recipes I made prior to my surgery. I was cooking and baking up a storm a couple weeks before, in order to stock up my freezer.

This Healthy Banana Blender Muffin is now a favorite of mine. It froze amazingly well and is delicious and easy to make.

I also made some scrambled egg, sausage and veggie muffins. Those didn't come out quite as well. They tasted great right out of the oven, but they were nasty after they were frozen. I forced  them down a few times for breakfast... but then decided I just couldn't eat one more! I dumped them ALL in the trash! 😝

scrambled egg, sausage and veggie muffins

They were weird... It's like they were sponges, they were full of water. I could literally squeeze water out of them and the texture was like a sponge too! The were awful! Blech!! 

But these Healthy Banana Blender Muffins were awesome!

And they were a snap to blend up! What could be easier than tossing all the ingredients into a blender?
