Dinner: rice, edamame, corn, avocado, daiya, broccoli, and mung beans. Sooooo good.
I’ve neglected this blog for a while. I don’t now how many of you follow my personal blog, and know my story. But in a nutshell, I’ve struggled with an eating disorder for over 10 years. I took the spring semester off to get intensive treatment for my eating disorder. I spent 3 months in Denver in an inpatient and a residential facility, and then came back home to Maryland where I spent 4 months in a day and an intensive outpatient program. Currently, I am seeing a therapist, a dietician, a psychiatrist, and attending two groups a week. I’m still struggling, because as most people who struggle with an eating disorder know, recovery is a LONG process. But I am doing so much better than I have in years, and I have so much hope that maybe I can recovery someday.
Anyways, what I’m getting at here. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue with this blog or not, and I’m kind of looking for other people opinions and their own experience. I feel like in a way, posting intakes and pictures of food is eating disordered in itself. It’s looking for validation in what you’re eating, and it’s spending a lot of time still obsessing over food. I’m not sure if it’s a healthy thing for me or not. But at the same time, I really want to keep this blog and post photos of my food, because I’m actually eating enough and enjoying what I’m eating. And I find it somewhat fun to “show off” what I’m eating. But then again, is that eating disordered in itself?
What are your guy’s thoughts?
Coconut almond dreams yogurt with pumpkin, banana, and two moms in the raw cereal.
Study food! Evo hemp bar, almond milk yogurt with pumpkin, apple.
Looks gross, but actually really good. Tofu ravioli with tomato sauce and nooch.
All homemade by me (except the tofurkey roast), and vegan. I’m actually really proud of myself for putting this together. I also think this is the most normal meal I’ve eaten in years.
- Tofurkey roast with stuffing
- Vegan gravy
- Cranberry sauce
- Pumpkin muffins (turned out kind of bad, inside didn’t cook, and it was really dense and chewy)
- Brussels sprouts, parsnips, and asparagus
- Sweet potato casserole made with a ripe banana as the secret ingredient
