Do you miss fries? I’ll answer that: Who doesn’t? I know it’s hard to substitute that crisp, starchy texture, but a lot of veggies can come close in savory, salty flavor. Celeriac (a.k.a. celery root) is one of my favorite potato substitutes. If you can’t find it at your usual grocery store, you may have to look at specialty stores like Whole Foods or a local farmer’s market–and you’re more likely to find it there when it’s in season during fall/winter.
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!
