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:

  1. Yummy recipes thank you!
    I´m referring to the first picture on your post. In contrast to what it says, I´ve read that you should always soak chia seeds before use. And NOT use them raw as they will soak up liquid in your stomach and intestine and can cause problems.
    This is what I have read, I don´t have any own experience. But I thought I should mention this.

    1. Thank you for mentioning this... when I googled for chia seeds there did come up something like that. Something like blockage ... which might be because of the seeds soaking up liquid. I've never eaten them as they are so i don't really know, but it does sound plausible.

    2. Thanks for the warning about soaking the seeds - I did wonder about that and will definitely be soaking mine. I heard the same thing happens with oats if you eat them without cooking them first - anything to avoid a tummy ache!
      Thanks for the recipes Izzy, I`ve printed a few off and will definitely be trying them!
