I'm a sophomore at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, studying biology. This is my journey from the depths of an eating disorder, to the wonders of loving your body and loving yourself and getting healthy along the way. You can be happy with the number on the scale but hate how your body looks all at the same time.

One of my best days minus the pound cake!
Being in college and staying as healthy as I did over the summer is soooo hard! I’m sure I’ve gained a few pounds or if I haven’t I know I’m not being nutritious by any means.
What I really need are delicious easy and healthy meals/snacks to keep me on track? Easy, delicious, yummy things I can make and not worry about whether I’m eating healthy or not!
