This Blueberry Lemonade recipe is easy, peasy… well, you know the rest! Who doesn’t love lemonade? It’s the first thing you want to reach for on a hot summer’s day. It’s super easy to make and so very satisfying. Even more so if you happen to have lemons in your backyard. Just about any fruit pairs well with lemonade, but blueberry and mint make for an extra-refreshing combination. If you like, you can muddle the blueberries with the mint to get a bit to get more of their juices and flavor (as well as their beautiful color) into the lemonade, or you can leave them undisturbed. I quite like eating the ice-cold, lemonade-soaked blueberries left at the bottom of my glass afterwards!
Struggling with thyroid disease?
Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? by functional medicine practitioner Datis Kharrazian is single-handedly responsible for my improved health over the past few years. It introduced me to the connection between autoimmune disease and lifestyle factors like diet at a time when my doctors were telling me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid even though I had high antibodies. This book gave me the information I needed to get the right tests ordered and seek proper treatment. It’s a must-have guide for anyone who has already been diagnosed with thyroid disease, who is at risk due to family history, or who strongly suspects they may have it but isn’t sure where to start. I can’t recommend it enough!
