ED RECOVERY Q&A: Extreme Hunger, Weight Gain & Exercise in HA Recovery

Welcome to another mukbang! Join me on my lunch break as I answer all your questions about eating disorder recovery, life and the universe

  • Prepare soba noodles according to package instructions
  • Sauté your veg. I went for onion, garlic, ginger, wild mushrooms and kale
  • Add a source of protein. I fried up some teriyaki tofu, but tempeh or beans also works
  • Make your peanut-satay sauce! Combine a ridiculous amount of peanut butter with a tsp of mustard and miso, and thin it out to the right consistency with water
  • Combine and enjoy
