Now that your starting to be curious and eat to cater to your thyroid. Don’t feel you have to totally give up on foods you love. Cooking actually isn’t very hard. You can put together some simple meals very easily — often in less time than it takes to get take-out food, and definitely in less time than it takes to go out to eat. If you learn to cook yourself, you can have control of the ingredients, and once you get the hang of it, it often tastes a lot better, too!
Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring!
It is definitely a struggle to switch your eating habits, and takes time to find new ways to spice up healthy foods-but it’s not impossible. There are so many foods out there that can kick your craving for the ‘unhealthy’ foods.
Processed foods and sugar influence our taste buds and when you stop eating those things on a regular basis, other foods actually start to taste better.
Be creative and experiment!
This is eating clean at the very best!
