This blog is all about my journey from self-deprivation to self-love and my rediscovery of the beauty in food. During my first year of college, I developed an eating disorder that left me bony, weak, and tired. I finally couldn’t take it any longer and asked for professional help. My experience with therapy was not super positive (I wasn’t a huge fan of my therapist, and I’m pretty sure he wasn’t a huge fan of me). However, therapy did motivate me to help myself make changes in my life, learn to love myself and food again, and rediscover that there is life outside one’s eating disorder.
I’m a junior in college now, and I have very little experience cooking for myself. Growing up, my mom did most the cooking and in college I eat at the dining hall. This blog is about my journey in learning how food can be fun and delicious. There also may be tid-bits about my life, my eating disorder experience, and what worked/is working for me in recovery. I hope I can inspire anyone who reads this to discover fun in food and nourish their bodies and souls. I also hope that I will grow throughout the journey.
