Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Food tips!!

I dont know how it is in your house, but in my house we do a big food shopping once a week - usually on Fridays. So on Thursdays and Fridays, its all about using whats left, which isnt much. However what i have learned is that you really dont need alot to make somethign really tasty :)

As long as you have basic things like oatmeal or flour, milk, eggs/egg whites and things like dates then you can make some sort of snacks and breakfast.
 
Today using what we had left i made a baked oatmeal pancake, 'apricot, coconut and date' balls & 'coconut, apriot and chocolate bars!'

The ingredients i used for the baked oatmeal pancake was just oatmeal flour, mix of milk and almond milk, egg whites (I've gotten asked why i use egg whites and not eggs, its because i buy 'egg whites in a bottle' as its cheaper and its perfect to use when i bake things like this, and also buying eggs cost alot... so when i need between 4-6 eggs, its better ot just use 1-2dl egg whites ;)), baking powder & some funlight to give it flavour. Into the oven until it was no longer 'wet' and there... a perfect, yummy baked oatmeal pancake :)

And for the raw balls, and bars i just mixed together apricots, dates, shredded coconut, a little bit of tahini and for the chocolate bars i added some cacao powder :)
 
Other easy things you can make with basic ingredients is mugcakes, banana & egg pancakes, veggie burgers (as simple as shredded carrots & zuchinni, eggs and flour!) or egg muffins.

    There are even simple microwave bread recipes you can make with oatmeal, egg, some milk and into the microwave!!

Just some tips for you who are either on a budget, or dont know what to make/eat with few ingredients :)

Ohhh.. also banana and oatmeal cookies!! (Add raisins or chocolate chips for extra taste!) And if you have berries, milk and eggs you can make 'protein fluff/egg white fluff'!!
