You may need iodine to help the thyroid. Many years ago a law was passed to put iodine in salt because people had no other source for it. You can get iodine as a liquid. Definitely work with a Homeopathic Doctor to establish right amount to take. Also black walnut is high in iodine. One can take 1 tspn or more of the black walnut 3 times daily.

It is the almond butter I am most unsure about… think it is okay to leave in or should I reduce it? Thanks so much for any feedback you can offer!

Good job on the kale. All looks good but you might want to skip the banana or use half a banana and half a cup of blueberries. See how you feel without it. I was wondering if the kale needs to be steamed first? I tried making a green smoothie with raw kale and got lots of kale chunks. I used my food processor.

I also have an immersion blender. Or do I need to invest in a VitaMix? Thanks for all that you do! Hi Michele, thanks for the question. Raw kale is fine. I have an Oster blender and it seems to work just fine, but Blentec and Vitamix have great track records as well! We have been eating drinking green for about a month my wife, two daughters and myself and we really enjoy it but I am not sure if we are using all the right things but it tastes pretty good.

What are your thoughts on this blend. OK, just made my first ever green smoothie thanks to your suggestions. However, is it supposed to be crunchy?

Impaired thyroid function can result in fatigue, cold hands and feet, hair loss, poor concentration, trouble losing weight, and short-term memory …. Goitrogenic foods—which interfere with thyroid function—include cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, turnips, rutabaga, and cabbage, as well as soy products and millet.

Strawberries, peaches, and spinach are also somewhat goitrogenic. Cooking partially inactivates the goitrogens, except in the cases of soy and millet. Hi Jeff, Great questions. My green smoothies are raw — I believe in the healing and detox power of raw fruits and veggies. But I eat cooked cruciferous veggies, as well. I have no science to support my claim, but I believe adding two glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts to the smoothie will negate any potentially harmful goitrogens. Plain kefir has some sugars just from the nature of its milk base, but it also comes along with a decent amount of protein — more so than the cultured coconut milk does.

Throw in some shredded coconut, cinnamon, BIG handfulls and organic spinach, stalks of organic lacinato kale, and some quality whey protein, and you have yourself a DIESEL breakfast shake. Be prepared for strange looks from coworkers as you slug down these babies! If you can find a reliable source for the eggs, absolutely!

Hi Abel, I like the post and love my veggies and fruit, but how do alkalizing foods burn fat? A quick search through the internet does not reveal much in the way of a good answer.
