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.
In the years leading up to the Civil War, Ohio had more African American settlements than any other state. Owing to a common border with slave states, it became a destination for people of color seeking to separate themselves from slavey. Despite these communities having populations that sometimes numbered in the hundreds, little is known about most of them, and by the beginning of the twentieth century, nearly all had lost their ethnic indentites as the original settlers died off and their descendants moved away. This book pieces together the stories of more than 40 of these black settlements.
Trying to police and protect a child from screen time is unquestionably one of the most confusing and frustrating responsibilities of good parenting. It's a tough job being a 'media monitor' all the time. Technology is at the centre of everything we do? TVs, smart phones, computers, and tablets are no longer luxuries, they are necessities for navigating life today. But technology can also be detrimental to growing minds, and parents must master the necessary skills to help their children not only survive in this digital world, but to actually thrive. Kids love smart phones, tablets, computers, TVs, anything that gives them screen time. They come by their dependence honestly--they learn it from us, the 'adults.' We've become a culture of screen addicts, and that's especially challenging for parents. But the solution is not found in constantly policing the time kids are glued to a screen or in protecting what they are being exposed to; it's found in how they are engaging and interacting with that screen. Nicole Dreiske, founder and director of the International Children's Media Center, is one of the most respected pioneers in the understanding and cultivation of new techniques for transforming the way kids view, use and engage in electronic screens. In The Upside of Digital Devices, she provides parents with simple, practical instructions as well as a variety of effective tools for creating meaningful moments and critical thinking skills that can mark a turning point in their children's lives and futures.

Already identified in junior high as a top talent in Northeastern Ohio, Marice Clarett was saved from a year-long sentence in juvenile detention at age 14 so he could start his high school football career. Turning down numerous other scholarship offers, Maurice joined with Ohio State University head coach Jim Tressel and both men embarked on a fairytale National Championship season in 2002. In the summer before Clarett's sophomore year, an NCAA investigation resulted in him being declared ineligible and he left the university. Locked out of the NFL by a rule against drafting freshmen or sophormores, Clarett returned to a life on the streets and eventually wound up in prison where he was able to turn his life around. Released from prison after 4 years, Maruice has now started social service agencies in Youngstown and Columbus, Ohio, and tours the country speaking to athletes, religious groups, mental health advocates, and criminal justice reformers.
