Wanna hear something funny?
Haha… found this today…
If you do use medication (Levothyroxine) to help supplement your thyroid hormone production, then you should avoid these foods because they can block the body’s ability to absorb the medication. In the end, that leaves you (and maybe your doctor) wondering why you feel so badly when you take your medication regularly and try to be healthy.
These foods are generally called goitrogenic and are, ironically, foods we are often encouraged to eat as part of a daily balanced diet. Ideally, you should avoid or limit the following foods: brussel sprouts, rutabagas, turnips, radishes, cauliflower, potatoes, corn, millet, cabbage, peaches, pears, strawberries, mustard greens, spinach, radishes, African cassava, and kale.
What’s so funny? These are MOST of the foods I have been eating for the past month. Lovely.
