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:

Oreo dream cheesecake recipe

Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake
Chocolate Cake Layer (recipe follows)
Chocolate Buttercream Icing (recipe follows)
Oreo Cheesecake Layer (recipe follows)
24 Oreo cookies (not double stuffed)
Oreo Mousse Layer (recipe follows)
Chocolate Ganache Layer (recipe follows)
6 ounces mini chocolate chips
8 Oreo cookies, halved
1. Prepare Chocolate Cake Layer and cool.
2. Prepare Chocolate Buttercream Icing.
3. Spread icing over top of cooled cake layer, reserving some for garnishing the cake later. Freeze iced cake for 1 hour.
4. Spread 1/3 of the Oreo Cheesecake mixture over the icing layer of the cake. Place whole Oreo cookies in a single layer across the entire cake. Top with the remaining cheesecake mixture. Chill for 1 hour.
5. Pour Oreo Mousse over the cheesecake layer. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
6. Spread Chocolate Ganache over the oreo mousse layer. Chill at least 1 hour.
7. Remove cake from springform pan and place on serving plate.
8. Place reserved chocolate icing into a piping bag. Pipe swirls of icing in circles around the top of the cake. Garnish each swirl with an Oreo half.
9. Press mini chocolate chips around the sides of the cake. Press firmly so that the chips stick.
10. Chill the cake for at least another hour, then use a serrated knife to cut into 12 slices. (I didn’t serve Cheesecake Factory portions, so for me the cake served about 20.)
Chocolate Cake Layer
9 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon shortening
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350℉.
2. Combine sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix with an electric mixer on high for 2 minutes. Add oil and shortening and mix well. Add the water and mix until smooth.
3. In another medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
4. Pour into a well greased 10-inch springform pan and bake for 25 minutes.
Chocolate Buttercream Icing
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
1. Using the wire whisk attachment of a stand mixer, whip the butter on medium-high speed for 5 minutes, stopping to scrape the bowl once or twice.
2. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the sugar. Once all of the confectioners’ sugar is incorporated, increase the speed to medium-high and add the vanilla. Mix to combine. Add the melted chocolate and whip at medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed.
Oreo Cheesecake Layer
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1. Whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high until the stiff peaks form. Mix in the softened cream cheese and beat until smooth.
Oreo Mousse Layer
0.5 (1/4 ounce) package unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup hot water
2 ounces white baking chocolate
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons honey or 1 1/2 teaspoons corn syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
10 Oreo cookies, crushed
1. Mix packet of powdered gelatin with the hot water. Stir and set aside.
2, Melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a double boiler, being careful not to burn it.
3. Add melted chocolate to gelatin and mix well.
4. Whisk egg yolk by hand in a small bowl to soft foamy peaks.
5. Meanwhile, bring honey to a boil (I heated the honey in a small dish in the microwave). Pour hot honey onto the egg yolk, stirring constantly. Add milk.
6. Fold the melted chocolate into the yolk mixture.
7. In a large mixing bowl, whip the cream to soft peaks and fold into the chocolate mixture.
8. Stir the crushed Oreos into mousse mixture.
Chocolate Ganache Layer
1 egg
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Whisk together the egg, cream, and sugar in a heavy saucepan and whisk over medium hear for 6 minutes, or until thick (just as it is about to get to the simmering stage), stirring constantly (You can also do this using a double boiler).
2. Remove from the heat. Add the chocolate chips and mix until smooth.
