Hypothyroid Diet

A Simple Treat: Peanut Butter and Chocolate

Posted by Miss Lizzy

In a desperate moment trying to satisfy my sweet tooth I discovered this low carb treat.  Its great by the spoonful or on apples, and it’s really easy. I like easy. Plus the protein of the peanut butter holds my appetite over so I don’t have a sugar crash. It’s a win/win treat.

I prefer Real butter peanut (especially fresh ground like at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s) because its just nuts, no hydrogenated fats. I also prefer good cocoa powder like Valrhona for rich taste and that dark chocolate color, but use what you can find.  Just mix the cocoa with the peanut butter, and add some honey or Kal’s Liquid Stevia for a little extra sweetener if you want.

As a special treat for my son’s lunch box, I put the chocolate peanut butter on apples then dipped in sprinkles. The sprinkles are for decoration so the sugar is minimal, but it makes him so happy you’d think I had given him cake.

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
