Did you know your thyroid can make or break your bones?

Chances are you know someone with an underactive thyroid. Maybe it’s you…

I’m not surprised. Hypothyroidism has become an epidemic. It’s estimated to occur in up to 6.5 percent of people. It’s twice as likely to hit you if you’re a woman and three times more likely if you’re white.[i]

In a minute, I’ll share with you a great new resource Skelly and I have found for making sure your thyroid is always in tip top shape – naturally.

Build Your Bones With Butternut Squash Soup

I don’t have to look at the calendar to see when fall arrives.  I feel it in my bones.  They get very excited when the first beautiful butternut squash appears at the farmer’s market.

food stamp challenge the bone healthy food we ate

When I heard about Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s (now Senator) one week Food Stamp Challenge on the Sunday Morning Show, I was intrigued.  As a bone health and nutrition coach, I wondered whether you could not just survive but eat well on food stamps.

When I say eat well, I mean eating fresh, unprocessed, organic, non-GMO food.  Now that’s a challenge!

With my friend Vicki, we set a goal to eat well on a budget of $4.40 per person, per day — the same “per day” budget Mayor Booker used.

Food budget:

Daily: $4.40 per day, per person

Weekly: $30.80 per person, $61.60 combined/per week.
