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!

Here are a selection of simple and delicious recipes that are made mainly using the ingredients featured in the cheap vegan essentials list. The ingredients required which do not appear on this list are either cheap and widely available or are optional and easily substituted.
Soups and Salads
Sides and Small Plates
Snacks and Desserts


  1. Wow - that's a lot of recipes! whoever said vegan eating was restrictive!
    Thanks for this Izzy - you`re a star!

    1. Hahah. I didn't put together the whole list but I thought it was worth sharing. I like to say that veganism is only restrictive if you make it restrictive.

  2. Amazing! Thank you. I try to eat vegan as often as possible, but a lot of things are really expensive..and I really love bread..can you give an advice what to eat on bread? Normally I eat butter, cheese, chocolate spread, hummus or avocado. But i havent got cheap alternatives to cheese or chocolate spread

    1. I love bread as well!! Some tips are hummus (make home made mhumms and add different flavourings such as sun dried tomatoe hummus or garlic hummus) or make your own garlic butter/margarine, peanut butter and jam, home made nut butter, tahini (or home made tahini), guacamole, make your own cashew cheese/cashew cream cheese.. Or just top with margarine and lots of veggies!!

  3. Thanks so much for this list!!! I'm going to have to start at the top and work my way down so I can try all of the recipes :) I'm celiac as well, so I'm used to getting creative with my cooking and baking.
    I love experimenting with vegan recipes (just no coconut milk!! I've never liked the taste of coconut haha). At the moment, I'm 100% vegetarian, and slowly using up my other animal based products so I can commit to veganism! You're such a huge inspiration :)
