Who doesn't love a good book and an opportunity to discuss and explore ideas?

The purpose of this health book club is to help you build a sense of competence and empowerment when it comes to your health.

Not only will you be building a health foundation,  you will also have a guide (me) to help you explore the concepts and the practical applications of the information. At times, like this month, our book club meeting will include the author(s) of our book choice. By participating, you will also be part of a community of like-minded people. We can support and learn from one another. How great is that?

If you love to learn and are interested in both the science and the spirit of nourishment, then you just have to participate.

It's free. It's virtual, so you can participate in your jammies.

For right now, we are shooting for one book every two months. We'll see how it goes and adjust accordingly

The Essential Thyroid Cookbook

on Monday, November 13 at 6:00 PM.




Our second book club selection will be The Essential Thyroid Cookbook by Jill Grunewald, HNC, Integrative Nutrition and Hormone Coach,  and Lisa Markley, MS, RDN .

Hashimoto's is the most common autoimmune disease and thyroid problems are among the most prevalent yet overlooked conditions that compromise women's wellbeing. (Additionally, men are being diagnosed in increasing numbers.) With their combined 20+ years of nutrition and culinary wisdom, my friends, Lisa Markley and Jill Grunewald have a mission to help those with Hashimoto’s reclaim their health. The result of years of research, writing, recipe testing and love: The Essential Thyroid Cookbook: Over 100 Nourishing Recipes for Thriving with Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s.

Lisa and Jill both know first-hand the challenges of Hashimoto's and have discovered that the most impactful way to reduce symptoms and improve thyroid and immune health – for themselves as well as their clients – is to focus on the sound nutrition and lifestyle strategies outlined in this first-of-its kind cookbook.

The mouthwatering recipes are easy enough for any home cook, appeal to a broad variety of palates (Hashimoto’s or not), and are thoughtfully crafted to perfectly translate thyroid- and immune-supportive nutrition recommendations to your plate.

If this weren’t enough, The Essential Thyroid Cookbook is a book-within-a-cookbook. It contains a substantive, rigorously researched educational component focused on practical ways you can maximize nourishment to help restore your thyroid and immune system, or better yet, help to prevent thyroid dysfunction to begin with.

For anyone who has wanted to cook confidently for optimal thyroid and immune function, this is your definitive guide. The Essential Thyroid Cookbook belongs on the shelf in every kitchen of anyone diagnosed with hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s.

We are so fortunate to have Jill and Lisa on the call to answer our questions about auto-immunity, healing by means of nutrition and lifestyle choices, thyroid testing and more.  Make sure  you're ready with questions and comments of your own.
