Resources for vegans in recovery from eating disorders
Being a vegan in recovery from an eating disorder can be challenging. I have collected some resources which can help. I will most likely add to these lists as time goes on, but there are plenty thought-provoking posts and helpful blogs to check out in the meantime.

Blog posts on vegan recovery and intuitive eating
While full intuitive eating is unlikely to be possible at the start of recovery, some aspects of it can be incorporated into the recovery process. Here are some must reads when it comes to vegan recovery and intuitive eating.
Balanced vegan nutrition
I am not a dietician, nutritionist or medical professional so I have selected some posts which are written by people who know what they are talking about.
Weight shaming, Clean eating and other nonsense
Fat shaming is cruel, unhelpful and so is all the nutrition pseudoscience which you can easily find on the internet. Here are some posts related to weight- inclusivity, clean/real eating and whole food diets.
Some recipe websites
While there are so many great blogs out there for vegans, many aren’t suitable for people with eating disorders. I have found so many which display calorie information, food shaming comments and pseudoscience relating to nutrition (e.g. ‘refined’ sugars). The following are free from these potential triggers and should help you find great recipes for all your cooking/baking demands.
