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:

Brunch & waffles recipe

This morning as i didnt have anything better to do - apart from write blog posts - i decided to make a brunch for my damily. Both my sister and I were awake but my parents werent so i asked her if she wanted to help make brunch!!!
  We boiled eggs, i made waffles (so much better than pancakes) (the recipe is posted below) and i even made gluten free waffles for my sister. Bagels, yoghurt, quark, bread etc etc The perfect home made brunch.  The perfect brunch in my eyes would contain pancakes, fruit salad, chicken, fresh bread etc etc :)

My egg cake, bread, 3 waffles, nuts, coffee, quark etc was all eaten!!! Half of a average persons daily intake was most probably eaten in just that meal... ;);) And today is my rest day - just study and food today that counts :)
   My sister and I began talking about how much i eat and can eat, and she said it was refreshing to see how much i ate. Because so many other people just eat so little but i am definitely not ashamed of how much i eat, infact i feel proud of it :) hahaha

Recipe for waffles: From HERE

3 1/2 dl flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
4dl milk Arla®
100g Arla® Swedish Butter, melted

2 cups whipping cream Arla®
To do this:
Mix flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add eggs and milk. Beat until smooth. Add the cooling, the butter. Heat the waffle iron. Brush with a little butter before the first lag. Bake the waffles and serve with jam and whipped cream.


  1. looks super good!

  2. Hi Izzy :) I don't have a waffle iron. Do you think they can be cooked in a pan like pancakes?

    1. Im sure you can as waffles and pancakes are pretty much the same thing - almost. But i cant guarantee that they will turn out good :)
