Yummy Morning Smoothie

So I'm anorexic....and it started in highschool. I slowly got into the habit of skipping breakfast, and then lunch, but I would eat supper every night. Some days I would eat lunch, but most of the time I would ignore the hunger and it then became an after thought. I got so used to ignoring it that I have gone for years not eating.

I didn't even realize I was anorexic until I started seeing a shrink and she told me I was. I didn't believe her, but after I started thinking about the pattern she pointed out, I agreed with her. At the time I wieghed 107 lbs and I'm not a short girl, I'm 5 ft 8 inches tall. Even at that wieght I thought I was fat....I had the jiggle in my ass and thighs, blah blah blah. I could go on and on but I won't. It turned out I had control issues, (still do), and I was subconciously controlling what I ate as a way to feel in control of my life.

So over the past 2 years I have been learning how to eat...Its super hard! I will now eat lunch and supper and when I feel like snacking I munch on carrots and such, instead of eating chips and junk. My biggest problem is still breakfast. I hate eating in the morning...HATE HATE HATE HATE it! But I know I have to in order to be healthy and IN CONTROL! lol

Smoothies have turned out to be a really easy and yummy breakfast alternative and so easy to make different ones so it's not the same boring old thing every day. I've started using Hemp Hearts in them....It gives me everything I need in a balanced meal.... they are a complete protien source, Essential fatty acids, Omega #3 fatty acids, calcium, fiber, etc. The list goes on.

For more information check out this site's my basic recipe...feel free to add or change any ingredients to suit your taste buds.

Katy's Super Smoothie

In a blender combine the following:

4 tbsp hemp hearts
1 individual serving size of vanilla yogurt
1 cup frozen mixed berried
1 cup tropical citrus juice
1 cup ice

Blend until smooth and enjoy! Makes 1 large serving or 2 small servings.


  1. Love this! Great idea. I also hate breakfast, and smoothies are very fast and easy. They are a great way to get everything you need, like you said. I've never heard of hemp hearts so thanks for that info too.

  2. Katy...check my blog and read about the Kefir experiment...then google Milk Kefir and read about it. I have some Milk Kefir grains just starting to grow...once they are a decent size I will give you some so you can make your own. You will always have free yogurt...but way better for u than yogurt!! Let me know if your interested.
