Hypothyroid Diet

Shredded Carrot and Beet Salad with Fresh Thyme, a Fast Easy Way to Eat Healthy

Posted by Miss Lizzy

In the last six months I’ve become much more interested in eating raw vegetables. I noticed that my body feels happier eating raw rather than cooked vegetables. Raw vegetables keep me feeling full longer. They give me more energy, snd help me maintain my weight easier. One day I was walking around my kitchen thinking “Wow, raw vegetables are amazing! I wonder who has thought about eating raw vegetables???” Oh, um, maybe that’s what people mean by a “raw” diet. Silly me. Now I get it!

However, I realized I am terribly resentful of lettuce. Really. At times I love it, but other times I need something different. Something crunchy. So I started exploring other raw vegetable meal ideas which are FAST and EASY.

Even though I am on good treatment for hypothyroidism, I still get tired and need quick healthy meal inspiration during the week. Here is a great raw veggie base which can be added to any kind of meal — eggs, burritos, served with ground beef, and more. It takes about 10 minutes to throw together and keeps for a week or more.

A Cuisinart or other shredding device makes the prep fast and easy. Otherwise, shredding by hand is possible but more involved.

Shredded Carrots and Beets with Scrambled Eggs

Here is a fast breakfast with the shredded carrot and beet salad. Just top with scrambled eggs (Organic Omega 3 taste really really good!). I might add some lettuce, scallions and avocado if I am feeling inspired. Viola!

    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
