Food For Thought

I've been doing research on my new diagnosed Hypothyroid condition and was shocked to find out the bad connection it has with soy. Soy products are what I have lived on for years. A lot of easy convenient veggie products are made from soy. I thought I was being healthy all these years but instead I was probably destroying my thyroid. I have also discovered a bunch of other foods called goitrogens that aren't good for your thyroid function.

Cruciferous vegetables including:
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale
  • Kohlrabi
  • Mustard
  • Rutabaga
  • Turnips





Soybean and soy products, including tofu



What the hell am I gonna be able to eat?? I eat peanut butter every morning almost.....goodbye least I get to keep my almonds. And damn it to hell if I give up fresh juicy strawberries in the month of June! Goodbye soy, goodbye peanut butter.

Here are a few favorite snack items I still will be able to enjoy....
