Thyroid Diet Plan For Weight Loss

thyroid diet for weight loss, sharing a vegetarian full day thyroid friendly diet plan which not only helps you to lose weight but also nourish your thyroid gland.

banana is an integral part of thyroid health and it is one fruit that is available all through the year round in Kerala and sadly we have instilled this myth in our minds that banana is FATTENING!! Banana on the other hand is packed with nutrients and is rich in potassium, vitamin B6, and iodine!! yes, they contain iodine and so does carrots!! and can help nourish your thyroid cells. And ladies, if you are over 45 and nearing menopause then you need them in your diet and younger ladies if you are pregnant or lactating then you need them more! Did you know that without adequate supply of iodine in your diet you are more vulnerable to osteoporosis and diabetes?

whole grains are also rich in iodine source and the reason why I included whole wheat roti (homemade, of course) and poha (flattened rice) in this plan. I have divided …

Cacao Nibs: Super Food That Burns Fat

heard of cacao nibs?? its not cocoa nibs! its cacao nibs! they are raw chocolate chips, no processing, no added refined sugar, but you still get that chocolate flavour plus all the amazing natural benefits of chocolate and this my friends is a super food that should be included in your diet if you are a chocoholic like me.

if you are not familiar with cacao nibs, then you should continue reading. Most of us knows that cacao or Theobroma cacao, is the source of original natural chocolate. It actually comes from the seeds of the fruit of the cacao tree; I remember during my childhood on one summer holidays while playing with my cousins at Kottayam, we came across the cacao tree and we managed to pull out a large fruit and somehow opened it and found some white seeds and in my all kiddish innocence thinking it is pure cacao I tasted some and it was the most bitterest taste I have experienced and the reason why I still remember it when I think of original cacao fruit. So, the seeds of ca…

this homemade mix is an excellent fat burner and also will boost immunity. have this on empty stomach in the morning for best results. the active ingredient in turmeric known as curcumin has powerful anti inflammatory effects and is a strong anti oxidant. curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body and that is the reason inspite of us Indians having lots of turmeric in our diet, do not get its full benefits. black pepper is the one natural ingredient that helps the curcumin to be absorbed into the body by around 2000%, wow!

Curd Quinoa - How To Make Yogurt Quinoa - Quinoa Recipes

curd quinoa or yogurt quinoa is a simple and healthy recipe which you can put together in under 10 mins if you have some cooked quinoa in your refrigerator. When it comes to eating healthy, dinner is the most crucial time; I mean you eat healthy in the morning and at lunch, but dinner time you just lose the grip, maybe because you are tired after a hectic work schedule...whatever the reason maybe, sometimes cooking an elaborate healthy meal for dinner is most often cumbersome....well, at least in my case.

this recipe is inspired from curd rice which we all love; so I thought why not make the same with quinoa for a gluten free meal and I had some pomegranate seeds (which is in season now) and that added color to this dish along with a fruity crunch. quinoa, fox tail millet and dalia are the grains I like to use for a rice-less meal. And as always for everyday meals I love easy and quick recipes.

FYI quinoa is an ancient seed grain which is completely gluten free, pls check my youtube …
