I know that there are some vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprout, spinach, kale ...ect.) and grains (soy, millet) that are not so good for thyroid.
But I was shocked that the main two leafy greens that I love and eat on daily basis or every other day are rocket and parsley!
It says that arugula (another name for rocket) contains thiocyanates, which "weaken the activity of the enzyme thyroid peroxidase, which is required to insert iodine into thyroid hormone. This effect can be greatly reduced by iodine supplementation."
It also says that parsley has apigenin (the same substance is found in millet)
Oh, I love rocket salad. :"( And I love tabbouleh. I know it does not mean I can't eat them altogether, but I should not eat them daily. Actually my daily salad includes rocket becuase I don't like lettuce. And I eat parsley around twice a week.
Also I miss almonds. I've read they are bad unless socked before consuming. I like almond butter and almond milk.
But I'm happy that cauliflower and broccoli are bad for me, I don't like them. Now, I have an excuse.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
