Hi Katie!

Great to hear from you - and so happy that you are wanting to work towards health and happiness this year :)

I have coped the smoothie recipe below:


The Life Saving, Electrolyte Replenishing Smoothie...


1 banana
2-3 dates (dried or medjool)
2 tsp cocoa powder
1 cup crushed ice
1/2 cup of calcium enriched milk (or rice milk if dairy gives you bloating)


Blend all of these ingredients up in a blender - I use a Magic Bullet... It's compact and very easy to clean.

Drink it slowly and savor each sip. If you find it hard to keep anything down - then drink it before bed so that you can digest it while you sleep. If you think you can manage, drink it for breakfast... It's delicious and a healthy way to start the day!

Don't focus on any negatives whilst drinking and digesting this smoothie. Focus on what it's doing for your health and how it will help your body gain strength to beat bulimia!

Try not to throw up for at least a few hours after drinking it. This will allow your body to absorb the electrolytes from it.
