Life without Anorexia

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

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

2 protein pancake recipes

You all wanted the recipe for the protein pancakes i made the previous day :) Few ingredients were needed, however it did need protein powder which is something many dont have at home (its not necessary either ;)) and i rarely use protein powder but decided to use it to make these pancakes. And they tasted delicious!!
  But i also Googled for another protein pancake recipe without protein powder :) (Dont forget, Fluffy American Pancakes are just as delicious!!! :) You dont need to make 'protein' pancakes... normal pancakes are just as delicious :))

Recipe i used:

1 scoop whey protein (I used Vanilla Pear from Mmmsports)
1 tablespoon stevia
1 egg white
1 tablespoon psyllium husk
Almond/coconut milk
1. Add the protein, stevia, psyllium husk and flavourings/spices into a small bowl and mix into a liquid by slowly adding the milk. You should only need approximately 1- 2 tablespoons of milk.
2. Add the egg white last and whisk it into the mixture. The batter should appear like a regular pancake batter, the thicker it is, the easier it will be to make smaller pancakes but If it is too thick it will stick to the pan.
3. Put a non-stick pan on high heat setting and add some coconut oil to the pan (Only a very small amount). When the pan is hot add a tablespoon of the mixture and reduce the heat. The pancake will take about a minute on each side to cook depending on the size of your pancake.

Second recipe... From HERE
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 medium banana
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large egg whites (or 1 egg)
  • 1/4 cup fat free (or low-fat) cottage cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Optional add-ins:
  • Fresh berries, chocolate chips, peanut butter
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth, about 30 seconds.
  2. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter or cooking spray and heat over medium low heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet. Add desired toppings such as chocolate chips or blueberries. Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter. Makes 3-4 pancakes.


  1. So Why dont you make usual pancakes instead?

    1. Because even though she says it is not why... She would rather eat healthy

    2. Critisize me all you want, im not even going to bother explaining myself. The food i eat is the food i like, not everyone is the same. And yes i eat normal american pancakes if im out or at a buffet or something, though i might not make them at home.

    3. And p.s everything is fine and healthy in moderation. I mean eating too many protein pancakes is unhealthy?! I dont see food as healthy or unhealthy... i see food as food. And everything is ok and healthy in moderation.

    4. Well said ;)


    5. and besides...eating protein makes you feel more satisfied than if you were to eat normal pancakes. Not saying that eating normal pancakes is bad but sometimes you just want some protein. and thats okay... in fact that is GREAT!


  2. Stop attacking izzy all the time!! She eats whatever she wants!! She is healthy ;) why question everything she does?? It is like scrutinizing a celebrity in the media!! (I don't see anyone commenting when she eats crisps/chocolate/cake, etc...) so why now??

  3. No I just wonder why? What's the point in it? I guess its a bit more expensive and not as easy to make, so it doesnt really make sense FOR ME^^ that is Why Im curoius about the reason behind it. Gosh everyone is really attacking if you have one simple question, cool Down maybe?
