The Hypothyroid Diet Breakfast

 

The goal of the hypothyroid diet is to optimize metabolism. And the best way to jumpstart your metabolism everyday is with breakfast. If you’re currently not eating breakfast, start!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it’s the first meal of the day, and, it’s the first meal since you started your fast. What fast?

You’ve been fasting since dinner the night before.

If you think about it, you most likely haven’t eaten in 12 hours. This is a form of fasting, and fasting can lower thyroid hormone. So, it’s crucial you eat a ‘real’ meal before you start your day. I say ‘real’ meal because a lot of people start their day with a scone and a cup of coffee, this is NOT a meal, this is a treat.

A meal consists of fat, protein, and carbohydrate. Your snacks and ‘treats’ should also contain all three macronutrients. This will provide your body with sustained energy, not just a quick burst of energy that carbohydrates provide by themselves.

So, what does the ideal breakfast look like for someone with hypothyroidism?

If you’re like most people you live a busy life and you don’t have the time to sit down and eat a big breakfast, even though you should. One of the quickest and most nutritious breakfasts is a fruit smoothie.

Smoothies are great because they’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Smoothies are super-nutritious, or at least they should be. This is why they work great within the hypothyroid diet.

Here are some mistakes to avoid when making your fruit smoothie…

Don’t add fruit juice. Don’t forget to add fat and protein. Don’t use goitrogenic fruits/veggies (food sources that inhibit the absorption of iodine). Don’t add too many high glycemic fruits (fruits high in sugar).

Creating a great smoothie just takes some practice. Here’s an example of one of my favorites.

One banana, a handful of frozen strawberries, 1/4 of an avocado, whey protein, one raw egg, and water.

You can substitute blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries for strawberries because strawberries are considered a goitrogen. Berries are great because they’re low in sugar and loaded with antioxidants.

If you use a banana, make sure it’s small, and use one that’s partially green. Green bananas have less sugar.

The avocado provides good fat and fiber, this will keep you full. However, you can use coconut or coconut oil, or another source of fat.

Finally, the whey provides the protein, but you can get protein from vegetarian protein powders, just avoid soy, it’s not good for your thyroid.

If the egg makes you squeamish, or you’re afraid of getting sick, you don’t need to use an egg. I add it by choice for more fat and protein.

Don’t be afraid to experiment by adding veggies and herbs.

There you have it, the perfect breakfast and a staple of the hypothyroid diet.

Happy blending.
