This is a very special cookbook.
The brainchild of UK writer Francesca Baker, Eating and Living: Recipes For Recovery has been written especially for those recovering from an eating disorder — by someone who has successfully done so herself.
Francesca, of And So She Thinks fame, suffered from an eating disorder and found herself in an inpatient facility talking with other patients.
It was here that she decided she wanted to create a cookbook that could teach those suffering from eating disorders, to learn to love their food again.
"Quite often, people really love food and really miss food, especially when your body starves. We were talking quite a lot about food because you have to eat six times a day," she said in an interview with Elle magazine.
"You're kind of [thinking] 'I really miss this.' And, we found ourselves talking about the things we really liked and wanted to be able to cook again."
From here, Francesca begun to crowd-source recipes from fellow survivors or carers, taking to Twitter and her inpatient connections for contributions.

The result is far from your ordinary cookbook -- interwoven around the recipes are personal anecdotes, stories from the contributors, and real life coping mechanisms.
There are tips for grocery shopping, for example, "guiding readers to take a break in a non-food aisle to remove oneself from stimulation that's triggering a meltdown, or to avoid supermarkets and go local so you're not overwhelmed by choices."
