Bursting with blueberries and infused with lemons, these silky and creamy Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Breakfast Cookies are a great breakfast treat or anytime snack! Gluten Free + Low Calorie
Happy Friday Friends! Oh…you are going to be so very happy today because I have a treat in store for you! In July, I shared these Blueberry Lemon Yogurt cookies on Instagram. Everyone freaked out over them and rightfully so because they’re pretty darn delicious. But with the accident, I forgot all about them and for that I’m truly sorry. Better late than never? But before we get to the sweet stuff, I’ve got a few updates from the week.
Remember when I said I had a lot of appointments this week? Well, I had a lot of appointments. I returned to neck therapy after waiting two weeks for my insurances approval to return. I’m glad I was able to go back too. My neck has been stiff as a board from whiplash. Because my neck has been a pain in the you-know-what and I still have headaches and blurry vision, my doctor suggested I see a neurologist. Truthfully, I was skeptical about seeing one and felt it would be a waste of time. I honestly thought it was stress causing my symptoms. Well, I was wrong.
As it turns out, I have a concussion and a displaced eardrum. As the doctor examined me, I knew something was very wrong when he asked me to follow his hands with my eyes. As soon as I looked up at the ceiling, I immediately felt woozy. He then felt the muscles in my neck and shoulders and couldn’t believe how stiff they were. Even the left side (what I consider the good side) he said was really bad.
He then asked about my fatigue which I thought was strange. I told him I nap daily, sleep like a rock at night (that never happens) and how anything I do takes every ounce of energy out of me. He said he wasn’t surprised and that was actually a symptom of a concussion. He explained that between the tibia fracture, tear in my foot and the concussion my body’s working overtime to fix itself. And here I thought I was just really tired.
The neurologist told me a concussion can take anywhere from 6, 12 to 18 months to resolve. So in addition to neck therapy (and soon knee therapy), I now have ear therapy too. Whatever ear therapy is? He also ordered an MRI. P.S. I will probably break a world record for most MRI’s in a year. I can’t believe I thought I didn’t need a neurologist. I never would have guessed I have a concussion.
I suppose when life gives you lemons, you can put them in a bowl or you can make cookies and I choose to make cookies. Always cookies. Cookies for breakfast are a good idea especially when they’re creamy, silky blueberry lemon yogurt cookies under 100 calories! I’m sure I deserve cookies too after all I’ve been through. Who would say no to dessert for breakfast anyway? Happy baking!
