Dear Thyroid San Antonio Meet-Up, February 5th
I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for our meet-up — the San Antonio rain of the past few days had let-up enough and granted us a sunny, windy afternoon; just perfect for coffee and chatting.
There were six of us total — Lynn, Kristin (and her five-month-old), Greg (not pictured), Bee, and I (Liz). We met at the Little Aussie Bakery, which is actually more of a cafe, with a full lunch and dessert menu — all gluten-free. (Our table ordered vegetable soup with GF bread, veggie lasagna with garlic bread, and cookies and cake to take home.), This location definitely set the tone for the meet-up in the most wonderful way. Three of us are already gluten-free, and the other two said they’re very familiar with the diet. We talked food and other lifestyle choices we’re making to work towards wellness, even though only two of us have thyroid histories.
We also dished environmental toxins (endocrine disruptors), contaminated vs. clean drinking water, family histories of disease and genetic predispositions, our food supply, and of course, Dear Thyroid. Overall, the meet-up was a positive, uplifting two hours with people all equally interested in working towards more wellness, whichever way works best for them.
