I love fresh strawberries... Raw strawberries with a bit of splenda are fairly low calorie- so I'll have them on cereal, in salads and as dessert when in season. Not bad calorie wise - but maybe not so good thyroid-wise...
I love peaches too, but am more likely to be able to do them in moderation.
Peanuts are something I should just skip... Too high in calories/salt and I cant stop at 2 tablespoons or whatever silly amount is a serving.
I can't think of any way I would cook these things that wouldn't make things worse. I've got lots of great cobbler, cake and square recipes using these...
Like I said, Rats!
Oh well, at least pears and blueberries aren't on the list.
I think if it is something you consistently eat, you should be fine. I added in a lot of raw spinach and kale. I think that's what's throwing me off. I also think it is worse with Cruciferous vegetables
Wow I'm another one who didn't know about all these foods on the list. I'm with NSPixie on this...I almost live on peaches in the summer, strawberries in the spring and peanuts all year, and now spinach too? How am I going to live without these foods? Hmmn, can I cook peaches???

After reading the article quickly, it seems that cooking is the answer to most of that possible problems that could relate to eating these foods. The other solution is moderation, which seems to be the mantra for my life. Maybe you are sensitive to Kale. I hope you find your solution.

I usually put coconut water or unsweetened almond milk, spinach/kale/swiss chard and then a variety of fruit. I usually take the Syntroid in morning and drink the smoothie at lunch or early afternoon...

I have hypothyroidism. I started drinking green smoothies in May using mostly spinach. About a month ago I started having more symptoms, which surprised me because it usually improves in the summer. I took a blood test and my TSH has gone up (meaning it got worse) and my Dr upped my Synthroid (I also take Cytomel.) Has anyone else had this issue? I knew spinach/kale/etc could effect your thyroid, but I was really surprised at how much. Has anyone else had this problem?
