I struggle every morning with food. I'm hungry but if I eat then I will prob get tired, nothing sounds good bc my appetite sucks with the adderall, if I don't eat I start to become nauseated, blah blah blah. Bad food aversions.
Does anyone have a good breakfast smoothie recipe that works for them? Just enough to get something on my stomach but not too much to wipe me out.
Besides that, tho - for healthy shakes, start with almond milk as a base. Keep bags of frozen fruit around, almost any can be thrown in. Bananas are a good thickener. Almond butter or natural peanut butter (just 1 tablespoon) is also a good add. Tiny splashes of vanilla, peppermint, hazelnut, or almond extract change up flavor. Small spoon of chocolate milk mix can give you a sweet treat. If the shakes aren't keeping hunger at bay long enough still, you can always add a scoop or 2 of any whey protein powder.
I'd like to start making my own shakes but I'm never up early enough or on time in my morning routine to do so. Grab-and-go options are a good route to take.
Half frozen banana
Two tablespoons of gluten free oats
Heaped teaspoon of crunchy organic peanut butter
Half teaspoon of honey
I teaspoon of powdered maca root
I use a half a glass of coconut milk and half a glass of water but any milk or milk substitute works.
You can try drinking protein shakes too!
I also think my anorexia was definitely more neurological than mental. I was that way my entire teen life. Never hungry and always getting forced to eat lol then after my first breakup at 18 I got incredibly sick because I barely ate. I was never fighting off hunger though and I wasn't ever fat lol it was weird.
As far as the lactose problem do you drink other types of milk or not really interested in them? Like almond milk, soy milk, etc? Because you can easily make smoothies with frozen fruit and milk/milk substitute in a blender. Of course when I was coming back from my eating disorder and didn't want to eat a (naive about eating disorders) doctor once told me to close my eyes and picture something that looked good to eat, then eat that. People with eating disorders are clearly different, because they do want to eat. It's more of a mental resistance then a physical one.
