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!

First barbeque/grill of the season - vegan style

Thursday.... a day that felt maximized of all hours and felt very much in the present and enjoying present life.

Thursday morning i ended up oversleeping and missing my lecture which was rather disappointing as it was about eating disorders and even if i dont need to learn about eating disorders, i wanted to hear how the teacher spoke about. I wanted to know what information she would say and how she would teach about eating disorders. We only doing an overview of that topic, as the subject of eating disorders could take years to study and i think later on in the course we might go through nutrition for people with eating disorders but we are studying about nutrition for people who are underweight/hard to eat or people with cancer, overweight, diabetes, highbloodpressure, high cholesterol etc

As i missed my lecture i decided to first head to the gym and then sit and study on my own in school. I wasnt sure whether i wanted to sit outside in the sun or inside in the library, or just go home and sit on the balcony to study, but i knew i needed to get my work done and if i were to sit in the sun i would get distracted and tired. So instead i sat inside, in the cold and got through all my work before i could finally leave the building and enjoy the sun.

Later when my roomie came home from school we began talking about how its the perfect weather to have a barbeque.... and thats exactly what we did! Went to the store for the ingredients, prepared the food in marinade, cooked potatoes, made sauce etc and then we made our way up to a hill/mountain and began to put the small "one time" grill on fire and once that was done it was just to grill the food! By the time we got to the mountain it had begun to get cold and the wind was blowing like crazy, but it was nice nonetheless.... however by the time we actuall ate, 90 minutes after getting to the mountain it was getting alot colder so it was just to eat quick and leave, haha. But it was a really nice time and super cosy anyway, not to mention nice to spend time with my room mates and of course a fully vegan barbeque!!

It was nice to just have a free day and to get my work done not to mention get time to spend in the sun and be social as well! A much needed free day before its full focus on school work and work again :)

Have you had a barbeque for the summer season (if its summer in your country) yet? :)


  1. Great looking barbecue food! Skewers are my favourite too - I do pitta breads with ours and fill them with the skewers and coleslaw, they are so good :)
    Your pictures have made me want to do a barbecue now! We built a brick one in the garden but unfortunately last year left the metal ash tray out in the garden instead of putting it away so its all rusted out. So its try to find a new one or replace the barbecue :( What are those little one time grill trays like? how long do they cook for? I am thinking I will buy one of these myself since the weather looks good for the weekend, so maybe a barbecue on Saturday!
    Good to hear from you and that things are going well for you - have a lovely weekend!

  2. What do you make your skewers with - they look delicious!

  3. Aawwww yyummy ;) oh and i love to see you smile so happy ;) and life is getting in the right tracks :) We also have barbecues here in Germany ;) we call it "grillen" :) I may not be a vegetarian or vegan, but i also truly like things such as grilled vegetables, cheese, potatoes as well ;) they all get very lovely on the roast :) Sending you much love ;) xxx

  4. As it turns out its a bit too cold after all for a barbecue :( so may be next week - Bank Holiday weekend instead! So this morning we went for a lovely walk along the quayside where they are holding a Maritime festival - there were several tall ships in and an absolute replica of a tall ship dating in the 1600`s - very impressive. And of course there were the usual luxuary private boats moored up every where - some of those were really stunning, I would love to have a ride in one of those! It made a nice change doing that this morning -now its back home and cooking sunday dinner!
    I hope you are having a nice sunday!
