Indian cuisine is my all-time favorite. Creamy curries, aromatic seasonings, spicy meats offset with cooling yogurt-based sauces and desserts… oh my, I’m in heaven at the thought. Aloo Gobi is a dish traditionally made with potatoes, tomatoes, and cauliflower in a rich blend of mostly seed-based seasonings. By subbing taro, carrots, and safe spices, my autoimmune protocol version is creamy, smells incredible, and is every bit as delicious and comforting as the traditional dish, even if it doesn’t boast quite the same amount of heat. Plus, isn’t it pretty? I love the vibrant colors in this dish.
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!
