Green smoothies with low sugar content are great for people dealing with Type 2 Diabetes.

I have never heard of a green smoothie to help a thyroid condition. Have you?

Thanks for sharing that! Of all the limitations and restrictions, this was the hardest. Plus, there are so many benefits to eating raw crucifers! I've suspected I may have an iodine deficiency because I keep my sodium levels very low and that is one of the main forms of dietary iodine in the US diet. Planning to have that checked at my physical in June.

I can have 1 cup 2-3 times per week cooked.

I've tried asparagus and celery, haven't tried cucumbers or zucchini yet. I don't know about other greens, those that are less mainstream aren't mentioned. If they are considered crucifers, they are included in the restrictions, though.

I've been playing around with some ideas. Having jaw surgery in July, so I will have to come up with some ideas! Thanks!

Due to hypothyroidism, I have been told to eliminate raw cruciferous veggies. This includes spinach and kale.

Does anyone have suggestions, ideas, or recipes that they can share relating to green smoothies and hypothyroidism? I love my green smoothies, but haven't had one all month because of these limitations.

Thanks! ~Kim
