24 Hours Eating ONLY PROCESSED FOODS (Anorexia Recovery)

24 hours eating only processed foods was probably the hardest challenge I've done so far (yes, it beat pancake day 🥞 🥓). As I always record my videos on days where I'm home or know for sure that I'll have enough time to get some good-quality video footage, I had time on my hands and I was itching to cook. What's more, I cycled past the fresh fruit and veg market and came back with... absolutely nothing.
It's not like I don't eat processed food on the regular. Honestly, don't get me wrong: I DEFINITELY do (and mainly on my non-recording days, when I'm busy and constantly shooting off from one thing to the next), but on this day I was zen and my body was very much craving some fresh produce and some relax time in the kitchen 🍎. And that's pretty amazing!

During my recovery, I could've stuck with junk food. And I did on numerous occasions. The beauty of recovery and listening to your body is that, over time, it starts to learn what it needs. Cravings change. So, yes, I eat junk food. And I definitely consume foods I would have considered off limits during my ED on most (if not all) days. But premade meals are definitely not the bulk of my diet -- it's convenience, and nothing more. My body (and my wallet) are happy. And now I can cook & it brings me relaxation and not anxiety! 👨🏼‍🍳.

Anyway, long story short. You too can get there. Listen to your body, disobey that ED voice. And go check out my new upload -- 24 hours eating only processed foods. Go give it some love 🙂 ❤
