Certified health coach Courtney Baron recommends seaweed for a healthy thyroid diet because it is dense with iodine, which is highly important for making the thyroid hormone. But she cautions against overconsuming it, saying, "Too much iodine is a no-no for a healthy thyroid." Her suggestion is to snack on nori sheets throughout the day.
Another way to get your iodine kick is by sprinkling salt into your next stir-fry or steamed veggies. "While sometimes salt gets a bad rap, it can be very helpful in maintaining a healthy thyroid," explains Baron. "Iodized salt, containing iodine, keeps that thyroid hormone flowing."
Kaitlyn Noble, a personal trainer and wellness coach, also suggests fish and sea vegetables, like kelp, which are rich in iodine. For a double dose, she recommends a sushi restaurant. Done and done.
