When I created this page I was about to undergo my second round of radiation and LID, the Low-Iodine Diet. In my journey I have found that sometimes finding foods that you can eat is a challenge, so I created this page to help those who are there, or going to be there. There are the recipes that have worked for me, and have allowed me to have a bit of a normal life during a trying time.
Please bear with me as this will take some time, but I am excited to share this new journey with you! Until then, please feel free to download the ThyCa’s Low Iodine Cookbook for tips and recipes. If you are on this journey with me, no matter where you are at, know that you are not alone, and eating well while prepping for treatment does not have to be overwhelming. If you have finished your journey, and have some recipes you would like to share, we would love to hear it!
