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

Cookies and cream cheesecake brownies

You should all know by now that i LOVE anything that is cookies and cream :) Its my weakness!!!
  Oreos, oreo chocolate, cookies and cream milkshake, cookies and cream cookies, cookies with oreo in them, cookies and cream questbars .... and the list goes on.

So when i found this recipe, well... my heart skipped a beat!!! I need to try making them! (And the most important eating half of the pan one or two of them ;);)
  That is my mission for next week to make these :):) Though i need to find some friends to share it with because i am pretty sure i could eat it all by myself within a day or two...and as my sister doesnt eat gluten and my parents are avoiding foods like chocolate etc then its up to me to eat them :) Though i dont have a problem with that if im honest!

Enough babbling, heres the recipe and if you try it, let me know :)
