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!

3 course vegan dinner with my friends


My first time updating my blog today and most likely my last for the weekend as it's go.go.go at the moment.

Today has been an up and down day as I barely slept last night and woke up with stomach pain still there and felt low because of the weather. So safe to say that I was not on the mood to host a dinner party, but I got myself together and began preparing at 2pm and was done by 6pm when my friends arrived. 

We began with 2 types of hummus, guacamole, home made nacho chips and vegetables รค. And for main course it was a vegan lasagna with aubergine and lastly a 3 layered raw cheesecake which didn't turn our so good at all so I felt embarrassed and a ashamed to serve the cake.  And I need to adapt the recipe (i know what I did wrong so I'll change it and try again.) But I hated serving the cake when it had turned into a sort of mousse instead of like a cheesecake.  But oh well. My friends were so sweet and ate and were so kind !

Then when the food was eaten, the photos were taken it was time to just sit and talk and drink tea!

It has been a lovely evening though I've still had alot of stomach pain, so have just had to get through it and be a good host. 
But now I am ready to just sleep and ready for a long day of moving furniture tomorrow!!!


  1. You look like you've lost lots of weight. Hope you're well.

    1. I'm doing fine :) but don't worry I am aware of my weight loss and it is not something intentional.

  2. I would be proud if I had made a cake like that! it looks beautiful, and very tasty.
    You are always beautiful, Izzy, no matter your size. X

    1. Naw thank you :) haha I have high standards when it comes to cakes so the one I made yesterday only got 2/10 for both appearance and taste :( according to me anyway.

  3. Your dinner looked lovely - so colourful! I`m glad it all went ok for you and you managed to get through it despite your stomach pain.
    And I don`t know what was wrong with the cake - it looks gorgeous. You are so creative when it comes to food :)
    Hope you have a good sunday, try to rest after all the moving.

    1. Thank you. You are so sweet! I guess I'm just very critical of myself when it comes to dessert and making food.

  4. Looks like a great day!
    All the food looks so amazing! :)
