Protein + Fat !

2 simple things I'm trialing, embracing and LOVING these days due to my hypothyroidism:

1. Increasing my protein intake; and


Why, I hear you ask?

Protein:  helps transports thyroid hormones to all your tissues and eating it at each meal can help try to "normalise" thyroid function.  So now I stuff each meal with nuts or nut butters, quinoa, organic/grass-fed meats, eggs, fish or legumes.

Fat:  is your friend, and not getting enough good fat could exacerbate hormonal imbalance, including thyroid hormones.  This includes eating more coconut oil, olive oil and ghee.  Avocado, flax seeds, fish, nuts and nut butters, as well as full fat dairy and coconut milk. 

Needless to say, this little treat ticks these two boxes.

Toot toot!
