Cruciferous Veg & Thyroidism

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 16, 2011 at 3:03 PM

I've read thru/searched a bit on PH trying to find something relative before I ask a question... my apologies if I didn't dig deep enough.

I'm curious about the effects of eating some of my fave veg & having Hashimoto's. I enjoy kale, collard/turnip greens, broccoli, brussel sprouts... but eat these on a weekly basis (once or twice a week)... other veg I enjoy weekly include spinach, romaine lettuce (usually as salad) & less often (monthly-ish) legumes (peas, green beans, navy beans).

I know, I know... "not strictly paleo". Whatever. I'm asking if my paleo diet with the inclusion of these particular veg & their (rough estimate) weekly consumption contribute negatively to this condition or if this is really not an issue unless I'm eating a pound of kale daily?

TIA

Well it's included on every list of goitrogenic foods (along with lots of other stuff), which is what the OP is presumably concerned about.

Spinach is not a brassica, fyi...kale, collards, brussels sprouts, mustard, broccoli, cauliflower...

Cook them for a very long time or only eat small amounts(like as a condiment).

I have Hashimoto's and from everything I've read it's not a huge issue with cooked cruciferous vegetables. I don't worry about eating them now. I do try to avoid eating them raw in any amount, though I'll have some spinach salad once in a while.
