Goitrogenic foods -such as soy products, cruciferous vegetables, and millet - are definitely foods that I have been told to avoid or greatly limit. But, I have heard recently that if those foods are cooked, it decreases some of the problems for those of us with thyroid problems. What do ya'll think? I'm very curious about millet bread - I've heard that millet is one of the worst things you could put into your body if you have a thyroid problem, but is that just uncooked millet?

No beer?! LOL I think I'll suffer! I try to stay away from soy whenever possible. It's interesting how sluggish I feel after eating sushi. Soy is the hardest one to avoid since anything remotely processed has soy in it. I've def read lots of stuff to support what you're saying.

I have never really looked into millet, and have no real desire to so I can't help you with that one.

Soy I will eat, only if it is properly processed. Fermented soy like miso, or REAL soy sauce (that doesn't contain wheat- hard to find in teh U.S.) I will eat. Any and all other soy I avoid like hte plague it is dangerous to eat for all people, not just people with thyroid issues. The stuff like Morning Star Farms foods is the WORST way aside from eating edammame.

Other things like broccoli, etc I do eat cooked without issue.

It is crazy how much stuff out there has soy in it! That and sugar! I wish I was disciplined enough to not eat any processed food at all, but we have been making better choices for our family, so I guess we are making progress.
