I believe that food is the best medicine for your body and this super healthy smoothie was created to help heal your thyroid. I have been struggling with my thyroid for many years, but this last year has been horrible. My thyroid swells up and hurts and throbs. It literally closes my esophagus, and I can’t breathe! My hair is falling out, my skin is dry, not to mention my mood and mind focusing problems. I have done lots of research into Hashimotos, wich is an autoimmunity disorder and the disease I have been diagnosed with. The doctors tell me one solution is to radiate my thyroid, and the other is to take it out. Neither works for me, so I am healing my body with diet. This smoothie recipe is one my daughter perfected for me.
Using the Vita-Mix machine, it’s easy to bring pure, clean, organic food into your diet and start the healing process. The ingredients below are in the category of Thyroid friendly and healing foods.
I use all organic ingredients if I can find them. I know the list of items is long, but this recipe is to help start to heal thyroid issues. It’s a bit expensive to gather all of the ingredients as well. But you will render many smoothies from the ingredients, such as the flax seeds and chia seeds.
When I go to the store to purchase healthy, organic, clean, natural foods and my grocery bill is out of the park, I reason with myself about the costs of one doctor’s visit. One round of blood work, and yet another doctor’s visit to a specialist.
Healthy Smoothie for Thyroid/ Paleo/ Vegetarian/ Sugar Free/ Dairy Free/ Gluten Free
- use organic low calorie coconut milk from paper container 1 cup coconut milk
- peel the skin and white from the lemon the white will make it bitter 1 lemon peeled
- 1/4 cup cucumber
- 1/4 cup celery
- 1/2 banana
- 1 peeled green apple
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/4 cup cranberries
- 1 carrot chopped
- 5 walnut pieces
- 1 tab Chia Seeds
- 1 tab flax seeds
- 1 tab coconut oil
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- Wash and chop all of your fruit and veggies in chunks. Place your cup of coconut milk at the bottom of your Vita-Mix and then add all other ingredients. Start blender on low and slowly turn up. Put on the highest speed for one full minute. I like a smooth consistency. With the Vita-Mix you can obtain it, other blenders will leave chunks. There is no need to add honey or sweetener because the banana and apple sweeten the drink perfectly. The lemon makes the smoothie! It detoxifies your kidney and liver as well. There is much going on within the smoothie that the lemon helps marry all the flavors.
- I think you are going to be surprised how good the smoothie tastes. It's all about blending it to the perfect consistency with the Vita-Mix. I like mine very smooth and thin. Not thick. You achieve that by using enough coconut milk and blending the perfect amount of time.
