If you have been diagnosed with thyroid issues, you may avoid consuming cruciferous vegetables raw. Goitrogens,  natural chemicals in these foods, can interfere with thyroid hormone synthesis.

Does that mean you should not eat them? Nope. No reason to stop getting health benefits they offer. All you need to do is cook them–light steam will do it, to inactivate the goitrogens. It is a WIN-WIN!

Enjoy it!
