What is The Thyroid Secret?

Have you met my friend, Izabella? I introduced you to her in the very personal blog post I wrote last week, and some of you may have already known her from her incredibly informative website, Thyroid Pharmacist.  That’s how I originally met Izabella too.

I loved the simplicity of the cumin, cinnamon and red wine vinegar...yet the depth of flavor the dish has when they are combined.
