Blessed Heaven- Papaya, Banana and Cantaloupe Smoothie
One of the Curses of Anorexia Nervosa is depleted levels of potassium in your body due to excessive vomiting, miss use of enemas or laxatives. I remember last year my potassium levels dropped to 1.6, which put me at an increased risk of all sort of health problems, mainly failed kidneys, heart and etc.
On a cold Sunday evening, I was upstairs in my room shivering uncontrollably, while downstairs an evening soiree with dozens of guests was in full swing.
It was at this time that a Papaya, cantaloupe and banana smoothie came to my rescue giving me whooping 1748mgof potassium. Please do consult a dietitian or doctor before you change your diet or add anything additional to your meal plan.

Let me tell you how good this recipe is for your skin and your beauty. I drank this smoothie continuously for 2 weeks and I noticed after few days that my skin had become clearer and more radiant, my dark circles diminished and my skin lost its anorexic dryness.
