I wanted ice-cream for breakfast, but didn’t want the calories that came with that so I made fresh Nice Cream instead. Does it deserve a blog post? Hell yes it does!
As a vegan, it’s so easy to assume that eating for weight loss has to follow a “conventional diet” where carbs are evil and fruit is a monster.
I’m definitely no nutritionist, but I am no stranger around a bit of reading material and finding the food fit that helps me heal from a lifetime of debilitating disordered eating.
You might know that I’m currently overcoming binge eating disorder and that my relationship with food is a testy one. Finding food that is not only nutritious, but won’t send me spiraling down a rabbit hole of binge and purge guilt.
So, while it is early days, I am on a path of nourishment and sustainable weight loss that isn’t going to trigger an episode.
Oh wow, I just became the vegan recipe meme of telling my life story before giving you a recipe.
Well, if you’re still here – you’re about to get the breakfast recipe to kick any blue morning’s butt.
