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

  2. Sweet potato with tahini :) Pierce a 300g sweet potato with a fork, microwave 3 min then flip, then microwave 4 min, top with lots of cinnamon and drizzle with tahini. That's my breakfast almost every morning!
    One of my fave snacks is frozen banana chucked in the blender with some almond butter to make a healthy frozen dessert :)

  3. You can get a piece of sole or tilapia, lie it flat in a baking dish, and slice up mushrooms, spinach, and jack cheese and put a decent amount on top of the fish. Roll the fish over the filling, lightly bread, and bake.

    You can saute swiss chard with salt, pepper, and white wine.

    You can get puff pastry, lie it flat and spread with spicy mustard, and then put a piece of salmon (scales and bones removed) in the center, and then fold the pastry over the salmon and bake.

    You can slice tomatoes, yellow squash, and onion and layer in a baking dish, sprinkle with parm, bake until melty.

    You can get pastry shells, and fill with pudding and berries.

    You can make trail mix with pretzels, marshmallows, and chocolates.

    You can get a loaf of nice bread, slice long way, spread with brie, saute slice portobello mushrooms in olive oil, and then layer the mushrooms over the brie, close the bread, cover in aluminum, and then bake until the mushrooms and brie in the center get melty.

    I like to cook :)

  6. I think self made smoothies or lassies are great in summer...just mix different fruits, smash them, add yogurt, maybe vanilla/sugar/mint and enjoy it!

    For baking: do you know quark-oil-pastry? Just mix 500g Quark with flour and some oil until its doughy and feel free to lay veggis/fruits on it, ad chees, cottage cheese, cream cheese....put it in the oven and wait until its done!

    Maybe this page is helpful:

  7. 1. Bread bombs! Get a roll and cut the top off & remove the soft bit. Put it in a bowl with tuna, egg, beans, veggies, quinoa ect and mix. Once mixed, stuff it back into the hole and bake for 10-15mins! :)
    2. Risotto
    3. Baked beans
    4. Pasta with presto sauce and veggies
    5. Veggie soup and bread

    Enjoy! :)

  8. I love toast with wierd combinations! I always use two slices of really dark bread, you know that kind that's really heavy, filling and superhealthy, made with wholegrain flour and has a little sunflower seeds or something inside. And then I put (in layers) a couple of table spoons of cottage cheese, three slices of chickenfillet, a cherry tomato, a leaf of salad, a drizzle of oregano, organic chilli powder, a pinch of fresh ginger and maybe some onion. That makes one really full toast, but somehow I always manage to fit it in the toasted sandwich maker. When it's done I just take it out, put in on a plate and enjoy it with a big glass of cold milk and a little handful of nuts and seeds! And you don't have to make it that complicated with the ingridients. Sometimes i just put a whole egg between the two slices of bread and when it's done, the egg has slightly gotten inside the bread. (OH! You could make french toast :) ) Cottage cheese and tuna is also a great combination in the toast :)

  9. These pancakes are amazing!! Adding about 30g of dark chocolate into the batter makes them beyond perfect! Just make sure not to add too much liquid, and to whisk the egg whites real good! I tried substituting the 3 tbsp of coconut flour with 37g vanilla whey + 15g coconut flour, and it turend out soo delicious!!

    The recipe is from here:

  10. Hey! How about raw nut yogurt? I once made out of cashews, it was yummy!

    1. Sounds strange but at the same time interesting!!

      Delete
    2. Makes one jug – about six servings

      - 1/2 a cup of almonds

      - 1/2 a cup of cashews

      - 2-3 cups of water

      - 1 cup of medjool dates

      - 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
      Place the nuts into a bowl and cover them with water. Then leave them to soak for about four hours, at which point drain the water and place them into a food processor.

      Blend the drained nuts with the dates, cinnamon and 2 cups of fresh water for about 10-15 minutes, this will depend on the strength of your processor but you need to blend until a totally smooth, slightly runny yoghurt forms. If for some reason it’s not turning totally smooth then try putting the whole thing into a smoothie blender and blending it with a little extra water.

      Once it’s ready pour it into your bowl, top it with deliciousness and enjoy! Then put the rest of the yoghurt into an airtight container and store it in the fridge.

      The recipe is from Deliciously Ella -blog

    2. The latte: put a bit of coconut oil in your cup of coffee, then whisk one ägg white and mix the fluff in with the coffee. Add for example cinnamon or cardamom :) And an other version is just in a mixer blend together cup of coffee with a whole egg and the oil
