I was listening to the Our Hen House podcast (great vegan podcast on Itunes if you haven’t heard it—Jasmin Singer is a Nutritarian, too!) and they mentioned a blog called Choosing Raw. I checked it out, and they had a section called “Green Recovery” that was really cool.
“Some of the traditional attitudes within recovery circles maintain that any sort of strong selectivity about food (such as eliminating animal products from one’s diet) or overt emphasis on food’s significance is inherently at odds with the recovery process. I disagree. My goal with Green Recovery is not to suggest that veganism is the right choice for all disordered eaters, or that it’s a “cure” for disordered eating, but rather to explore the notion that a world view in which food choices have political, ethical, and personal significance may actually heal, rather than hurt, people with traumatic histories with food.”
There’s a list of people’s stories about veganism and recovery. This is a fantastic resource for anyone out there who wants to lead a compassionate, vegan life, but also struggles with an eating disorder. I can’t wait to read more of them.
