It’s getting cold out, but maybe you are the one that’s colder in the room than everyone else? 

Or maybe, you struggle losing weight, even though you are eating less than the rest of your family!

If so, I hear you!

Early on my hormone healing journey, I learned that not all foods were created equal when it comes to how we feel.  Some foods support our metabolism, and some put us in an energy bankruptcy & slow our thyroid function down.

Having a sluggish metabolism, or an underactive thyroid, doesn’t mean that’s the end of the story.  It can mean NOW is a great opportunity to focus in on your self-care.  Because, there are a lot of natural strategies that really set you on a recovery journey, which you can do alongside traditional healthcare.

If you’ve ever been diagnosed with a under-active thyroid, you’ll be nodding your head at the following symptoms. 

  • Thinning hair
  • Colder than everyone else in the room
  • Feeling tired despite 8 hours sleep
  • Sluggish metabolism, despite eating less

And there can be a 3 major triggers for a sluggish thyroid

  • It can be genetic
  • It can be due to a trigger like a stressful period in your life
  • It can be exposure to toxins over a long period of time

The good news is, there is always something that can be done.  It is worth looking into strategies so that you can feel like the best version of you.  Your wonderful body is worth the effort – and when it is struggling, it’s usually because it’s working really hard & needs extra support.

But where do we start??

It is good to work alongside your GP & get bloods done, which can sometimes start to pin point areas to focus towards.  But what is also key for thyroid & metabolism function is:

  • a happy gut, 
  • a happy liver,
  • And happy adrenals (the gland that produces cortisol in times of stress)

I have a full guided protocol of self care through foods & lifestyle within the Goddess Program, which we ease into together, over a period of weeks.  But what is useful to know, if you were to take one thing away today is as part of self-care, certain foods can be extremely supportive.  Helping deliver the much-needed vitamins & minerals to get your thyroid functioning optimally, & supporting the liver, are top priorities.

This following recipe has become a staple amongst the Goddess Group ladies – not just  because it is so healthy, more importantly, it is very yummy, supports the thyroid, & can be batched up.  I hope you enjoy eating it as much as they do – so if you try it, let me know what you think 🙂
