Lisa Markley, MS, RDN, a dietitian with over a decade of nutrition and culinary experience, has co-authored The Essential Thyroid Cookbook with Jill Grunewald, HNC, an integrative nutrition and hormone coach who's been in practice for over a decade successfully guiding her clients and students with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's (autoimmune hypothyroidism) to health and vitality. With their combined 20 years of nutrition and culinary wisdom, Lisa and Jill have a mission to help you reclaim your health by translating simple, thyroid- and immune-supportive nutrition to the plate. The Essential Thyroid Cookbook is a book within a cookbook - it contains a substantive educational component as well as over 100 original food as medicine recipes that provide you with maximum nourishment for your thyroid and immune system. Hashimoto's is one of the most common autoimmune diseases and thyroid problems are among the most prevalent yet overlooked conditions that compromise women's health today. (Additionally, men are being diagnosed in increasing numbers.) Lisa and Jill have experienced the challenges of Hashimoto's first-hand through their own diagnoses and they've 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 strategies outlined in this book. The authors took a rigorous academic approach to this cookbook. In preparation for the choices of ingredients, Jill and Lisa created a nutritional springboard that is the foundation for their recipes. They extensively researched the most supportive nutrients for the thyroid and immune system and then identified foods that are dense sources of these nutrients. Each recipe or recipe combination had to contain at least 5 supportive nutrients to make the cut. Unfortunately, many Americans are deficient in the nutrients required to maintain and restore healthy thyroid function. These nutrients laid the groundwork for The Essential Thyroid Cookbook. Additionally, the recipes: - Emphasize nutrient-dense, whole food ingredients full of color and flavor - Are free of gluten, dairy, refined sugars, and other highly processed ingredients - Are targeted to the home cook and easy to prepare; many can be made in 30 minutes or less - Are thoughtfully created to appeal to all palates - Contain sensible adaptations, whenever possible, to fit dietary practices commonly used to address thyroid imbalances and autoimmunity, such as Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) In this cookbook, you'll also discover well-researched and practical education about: - Root causes of Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism - Key nutrients and their food sources (in addition to the foods already highlighted in the recipes) known to boost thyroid function - The connection between digestive health and thyroid imbalances - Nutrition and lifestyle strategies for taming autoimmunity - A discussion on goitrogenic foods, soy, and the dangers of low carb for those with low thyroid function - How to determine if certain foods may be triggering inflammation and autoimmunity. The Essential Thyroid Cookbook shows you how to easilyoptimize your thyroid and immune system by preparing nourishing, unfussy, nutrient-dense meals that satisfy and delight your taste buds while restoring your health. This quintessential book will support you for a lifetime of peak thyroid function no matter where you currently are on your wellness journey. -- provided by publisher.
