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!

My recent eats

Sometimes (or often....) i get comments asking me how much i eat and asking me to write a full day of eating, but as it varies so much its almost impossible to share. But also that MY full day of eating is irrelevant to anyone else but my dietician (who i meet like once a year, hahah). But also sometimes i get comments telling me that "i dont eat" or "i dont eat enough" and it always baffles me when i get comments like this because how can a random stranger online know what I eat? I eat ALOT more than what i post online and its important for you all to remember that. When you see a picture of food online you dont know whether 1) someone ate more than what is posted, 2) ate less than what is posted, 3) didnt even eat the meal (ive read articles about people who are "instagram foodies" who make food and just throw it away, this actually surprised me and why would anyone do that.) but also 4) it doesnt even matter,,,, a picture doesnt tell the whole story.  But i thought i would show some of my random eats the past while... some has already been posted on my different social media accounts, but for those of you who are interessted in my eats!






^Looks like a mess but its cabbage, seitan, oatcream, potatoes and nutritional yeast



I tried making carrot cakes... the frosting didnt workout well (i.e i had no patience so put the frosting on too quickly, but also didnt have enough ingredients) and the base became all dry so it wasnt so edible hahaha

  2. I don't know why the caption "lasagna/casserole thing" made me laugh :) everything looks delicious nonetheless!

    1. Yes I love the way you can keep coming up with new ideas for your food, makes mine look pretty boring! Do you always just make what you want to eat at the time or do you ever plan your meals?

    2. I just make whatever I crave/what I hace at home.... and rarely follow recipes hahha. It's easier to be creative and add different flavours to plant based meals!!

    3. perhaps I should try not following a recipe - more scope for creativity that way :)
