Dang! I love raw broccoli, spinach, strawberries and peaches… now it turns out they’re bad for me because I have an underactive thyroid. Ugh.
You’ll just have to start going with a lot more strawberry and peach pies! Once they’re cooked, you’re good to go.
I don’t do pies.
IKWYM. I already knew about broccoli and miss it raw, though it’s delicious steamed and we eat it a lot. Dearest had switched to frozen spinach a while back because the fresh just wasn’t holding up long enough for us to eat it, so that’s okay. The fruit is new for us, but we decided we’ll just get it frozen too. At least we can stop worrying about eating it up faster than it spoils. I just tossed a half a box of berries that had gone totally furry seemingly overnight.
One of my favorite things in summer is a salad I make with fresh baby spinach, fresh strawberries, toasted pecans, and poppy seed dressing. It’s sooooo yummy! Now I find out it’s also bad for me! #$%&!@#$%
My husband isn’t supposed to eat broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, or kale — cooked OR raw — because they’re high in Vitamin K and might interfere with his heart medication. I was just thinking how nice it was that I could still eat them, and then I find out they’re fouling up my thyroid. Sigh… 😦 Life gets so complicated sometimes.
Still, thyroid or no thyroid, we’re having homemade ice cream with fresh strawberries tonight.
Mmmm. That sounds really good.
I can’t help but wonder how big the thyroid effect is on some of these fruits and vegetables. Isn’t it possible that it’s small? I suppose, if it doesn’t make you feel bad, it can’t be having much effect on your thyroid, so it would still be fair game?
The thyroid is involved in so much of our overall health that it’s difficult to discern poor function even with blood tests. A lot of people with underactive thyroids are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed.
I was both for about 15 years and my 11 yo dd was for a month until I DEMANDED, over her pediatrician’s objections, that certain non-standard tests be done. When these tests proved I was right, we went to a specialist who praised our doctor for ordering the tests. I corrected his assumption and he admitted few physicians know enough to run them.
A couple years back, my fil was also failing fast, everything blamed on old age, until family demanded a closer look at his thyroid function. Yup. Once that was addressed, he began to have energy and clear thoughts again.
