Ginny Mahar has been blogging thyroid-friendly recipes and lifestyle tips since 2015, as Hypothyroid Chef. She also hosts the Thyroid-healthy Bites podcast featuring thyroid-specific food & lifestyle topics. She is a thyroid health and cooking coach who teaches Thyroid Thrivers how to cook, eat, and live for optimal health. Ginny has a 20+ year background as a Cordon Bleu-trained chef, food writer, and cooking instructor, but her life and career took a turn after a Hashimoto's diagnosis. Through her own health transformation, she became a passionate thyroid advocate, on a mission to empower and support others on their own healing journeys. Ginny lives in Western Montana with her husband, son, and two scruffy dogs.
