You know what annoys me?

The fact that its Tuesday and all I want to do is cancel all my appointments for the day and curl up longer in bed. Having a wishful thought for a helper that would magically appear and makes the best cup of tea, prepare breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.

Le sigh.

Some days are best savored slowly and fuss-free. Enters smoothie bowls. It’s the best breakfast or snack that can be prepared in a jiffy and devoured with less fuss as well.

And this is basically what I’ve been devouring lately. Truth.

Wow that’s an appealing bowl of goodness!! I too feel the same some days that I don’t even want to move a cup in my kitchen. I guess we all need some idle time though to rejuvenate the mind.

Silken tofu and chocolate, a combo I’ve been wanting to try for a while now. The way you garnished the bowl is super cute 🙂

My tummy doesn’t get along with tofu, but this looks sooooo creamy. Of course you presented it unbelievably beautifully. Mmm a double adverb—oh well. Laughing.
