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:

YOUR snack ideas!

Here are all the awesome snack ideas YOU suggested! So feel inspired :)

rice cakes with avocado and keso(cottage cheese) or rice cakes with nut butter and banana slices

You can do oatmeal with tons of different toppings like peanut butter, different types of granola, blueberries, strawberries etc and add a little bit of milk to it. 

Theres also peanut butter with apples or nutella and goat cheese on crisp bread

 Put yogurt, cheerios, peanut butter, banana, peanuts and some milk in a bowl and would mix it up.

 You can also make a sunday or banana split and add toppings like fruit, sprinkles, whipped cream etc. 

I mix oat flour with oatmeal (uncooked) with cacao and Stevia , mix all with water . Mix until a stiff dough and if you want you can add coconut . Put it in the fridge for at least 10 minutes (Source: X)

French toast! Take 2 slices of normal bread or sweet bread like broiche or raison/fruit bread and dip in whisked up egg whites. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sweetener and fry lightly until golden brown. Eat hot with ice cream/yogurt/granola or whatever you like!

..You can make tortillas with cheese and tomato :) You take a tortilla and put it on the stove so it fries. Put the cheese and tomato on it, however much you like and then once the back of the tortilla starts browning and the cheese or oatmeal has melted you just fold it in half and you're done!!

Another one is one I thought of myself, you take yogurt, quark, cottage cheese and add anything you want!! And lots of it!! Honey, jam, cocoa powder, almonds, cashews, berries, oranges, apples, any fruit, seeds etc. About two months ago I got into doing this and I had this phase where thats what I would have for breakfast. The best part is every time you can chose a different combination of things and see what you like most. There are so many different flavours you can get and I like how you can have so much in one :) You can use anything for your base but I like using yogurt :) Source X

Another one Ive been wanting to try is popcorn with crushed oreos and over it you pour white melted chocolate. I just know it would be an awesome combination!! Source X

1. apple cut up into "sandwiches"/rounds. spread each slice with peanut butter. spread honey on top. sprinkle with granola, coconut, chocolate chips etc

2. tortilla chips with melted cheese and salsa

3. crackers and cheese

4. smoothies (add a protein such as protein powder, peanut butter, or yogurt/quark) 
--> I love doing chocolate almond milk, chocolate protein powder, frozen cherries, and a banana
--> almond milk (chocolate or regular), chocolate protein powder or syrup, peanut butter, banana
--> orange juice, banana, pineapple, peaches, vanilla yogurt/protein powder

5. cereal, milk, banana, raisins, strawberries

6. muffin/scone with jelly/jam or peanut butter

7. bread/bagel/english muffin with cream cheese on top, then honey, then apple slices

8. trail mix (popcorn/cereal, chocolate, nuts, pretzels

9. milkshake with ice cream (vanilla/chocolate/mocha fudge), chocolate protein powder, almond milk (any flavor)

10. pretzels, crackers, veggies and hummus
--> hummus sandwich with 2 cucumber slices, hummus on each slice, then slice of tomato, piece of basil and make a sandwich with it

11. black beans, corn, salsa, a can of diced tomatoes (all combined). eat with tortilla chips orwraps

12. tortilla/wrap with peanut butter/nutella, banana, chocolate chips

My favourit snack is a fruit salad with coconut on it and maybe some ice-cream too. Source X

Avocado on crispbread <3 cakes="" honey="" nbsp="" rice="" span="" with="">
banana with peanut butter or even better - tortilla with peanut butter and banana; 
smoothies!! so many variations here;

OMG gotta tell you this one - take a banana, wrap it in folic, cut a vertical line in it and put chocolate pieces in, then put in microwave for around 30sec or until the chocolate has almost complitely melted


  1. I just want to add something important to the last suggestion: DO NOT USE ALUMINUM FOIL! That can be very dangerous - believed me, I tried once and I saw sparks of fire. It is possible for it to explode, so be careful guys! ;)

    1. Good point!! Ive put aluminium foil in the microwave before and it didnt go so well :) In the oven i think it works though!
