Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Healthy Chocolate Pudding

In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

This delicious recipe is courtesy of Amber Romanuik, founder of Nourish This Life and author Amber Approved Gluten, Dairy & Sugar-Free Recipes. Amber will be joining us on the podcast on WEDNESDAY March 5 at 7:30 pm.
