you're so welcome!Queen of Strawberries, thank you SO much, that means a lot to me . Honestly that's warmed me up inside . My parents are OK with me being vegan at home now, they have been for a while. They know I'm doing it for ethical reasons. So when I'm at home I eat vegan (right now I'm eating some homemade vegan energy balls. Yum) . This is the recipe if you're interested, they're just a bit different: https://fitfoodiefinds.com/diy-holiday-in-a-jar-cherry-pistachio-energy-balls/
I'm trying to eat a variety of things but I still get worried about eating some things like lots of oil, double carbs in a meal, sugar, etc. But I do eat lots of chocolate! And I bake desserts and stuff. I'm trying but I just hate my body so much at the moment .
and with the being afraid thing - I get that. You just have to keep reminding myself that (1) if eating that food makes you afraid that's the perfect way to kick your eating disorder to Timbuktu (unless you live there in which case kick it to the moon) and (2) let's just be honest: food made with oil, or sugar tastes dang good and carbs are amazing for energy and taste great! (My eating disorder made me try to go keto and that was the worst three weeks of my life)
(ps. I don't eat energy balls very often but now you make me want to have somemy mom used to make these chickpea and peanut butter ones - but I don't have the recipe.)
Hope you have a great day!
