My Green Recovery Story

Initially, I had planned to share with you a recipe for the world’s ugliest (yet delicious) pancakes, but I felt that I didn’t want to distract from a post appearing on Choosing Raw today.

I have been reading Gena’s blog for quite some time now, and have always been inspired by not only her own personal accounts, but also those she shares through her Green Recovery Series.


People often ask me why I choose to eat a vegan diet. The truth is there are many reasons, but there is one in particular I have never quite been able to put into words. On a whim of inspiration, I finally did so and am contributing these thoughts today to the series.


I would love it if you headed over to Choosing Raw today for the post. While you’re there, be sure to browse all the other amazing things Gena writes about! I would love any feedback, by comment or email.

  1. I just read through it, and I’m seriously happy for you in your recovery Suzanne. I think that anyone who’s suffered with an ED can agree that it’s the hardest battle they’ve ever fought, so knowing that you’ve come out on the other side and have been able to utilize tools like veganism and yoga to help and strengthen you is seriously inspiring. Proud of you lady! <3

  2. I too have just read Suzanne’s blog and can now say easily – “I get it”. Finally.

    Suzanne has done a great job of telling her story of descending into the depths of her hell – anorexia and then her triumph as she continues to emerge into one of the most purposeful people I know.

    As the parent of someone who has emerged from an eating disorder, Suzanne’s telling of her story this evening needs to be shared. There is hope, it takes a lot of work, it takes a long time and everyone involved; the sufferer, his or her parents, and his or her siblings all need help to climb out of what becomes a family hell. It does not happen by itself.

    Suzanne, you are amazing !!!! Thank you for telling your story.



  3. Thank you so much for sharing your story! I’m glad you are recovering and – your courage to move forward is so amazing.

  4. It was lovely to read your story, and very motivational. It shows a lot of strength and determination, because this is something you had to do each day, everyday. That’s sometimes the hardest.

  5. Suzanne, I just read your story and you are a truly amazing and inspiring young woman :) I never would have known any of this about you after meeting you both in person and through blogging. You are such a happy, vibrant and healthy person, which speaks volumes about the progress you have made! I am so sorry you went through what you did but I know that because you did, you will be able to help so many people. I think its so wonderful you are persuing a career that will let you do just that.

    You are amazing and wonderful and I feel so lucky to have gotten to know you!

    Also- your Dad is the most adorable EVER :)
