a recovery tip for if ur Terrified of certain foods or of All foods outside of a select few safe foods, and you’re trying to recover, especially if you have problems with purging (and binging):
any food is much better than none food. start off your day by pushing yourself to eat a few safe foods. I find that if I fast for the first part of the day, it makes it way harder to eat anything later.
at some point when you’re feeling daring, make some meals out of safe food, but with a Little Bit of another food that scares you. I had a picnic today and it was mostly safe foods, but there was also some hummus there, which is a fear/binge food for me personally. so I had mostly safe foods, with just a bit of hummus! and it worked out!
blease y'all try it, especially if you struggle with binging and purging. trying to jump right into eating all the things I’m afraid of right away in recovery usually leads to me binging, and most likely purging. by introducing them back in, with a safe feeling environment, makes those foods feel less inherently out of control and I think it’s a good first few steps.
