“As a triathlete and outdoor enthusiast, I’ve always been mindful of what I put in my body. In 2013 I was experimenting with new recipes as part of a clean eating journey. Oddly enough, it was around this same time I started experiencing tremendous pain in my stomach. I discovered I had gallstones and after removing my gallbladder, I just wasn’t the same. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with hypothyroid. I knew that digestive issues were at the root of it all and so instead of giving up on my clean eating journey I pushed on. I started researching new ingredients with positive health benefits and how to eat for and live with hypothyroidism.
