    Let's Talk Thyroid-healthy Eating with Annabel Bateman - Ep. 9

    Let's Talk Thyroid-healthy Eating with Annabel Bateman - Ep. 9

    In this week's episode of Thyroid-healthy Bites, we're going to switch things up a bit. I'll be in the hot seat this time, being interviewed by the amazing Annabel Bateman of the Let's Talk Thyroid Podcast. She had me on her show to talk all about food, glorious thyroid-healthy food! 

    Annabel is a health coach, cookbook author, Hashimoto's patient, mom of three teenagers (!!!), and a fellow Thyroid Thriver from Australia. She reached out to me via Instagram because we both LOVE thyroid-healthy eating and recipes.  Like me, Annabel has used diet and lifestyle to manage her thyroid symptoms with life-changing success. In fact, she recently found out that her thyroid antibodies are so low she's essentially in remission!

    We had so much to talk about and I had a great time on her show. This episode is a little longer than my normal episode length, but there's a ton of great information, inspiration, and practical tips we both shared as we compared notes and personal stories. 

    We Discuss:


    My healing journey and my mission
    The 4 core principles of thyroid-healthy eating
    The three primary food groups in a thyroid-healthy diet
    Strategies for making diet and lifestyle changes that stick 
    Mindset shifts that have helped us navigate a new and better way of eating
    Tackling gluten-free breakfasts
    Practical kitchen tips for real-world, thyroid-healthy cooking
    How to approach sweets, treats, and desserts.

    Are White Potatoes Thyroid-healthy? - Ep. 8

    Are White Potatoes Thyroid-healthy? - Ep. 8

    White potatoes can be one of those "gray-area" foods when it comes to a thyroid-healthy diet. Are they just more "starchy food" or "empty calories" that's going to send our blood sugar into the stratosphere? Are they mere standard-American plate filler or do they actually have some nutritional heft?

    Potatoes are like the Hooper Humperdink of common whole-foods-based dietary templates like Whole30 and Paleo. They weren't invited to the party, but now they are. But then, for true elimination diets like AIP, they are a no-go.

    Why is that? What's up with spuds and should we be eating more, less, or none of them? These are the questions we're going to explore in this episode of Thyroid-healthy Bites.
