27 Breakfast Recipes to Boost Your Thyroid Health!

avatarCourtney Hamilton

You know your diet can affect your thyroid, but we have good news: Consuming the right foods can help support thyroid health and give you more balanced energy throughout your day.

Research shows that getting the right nutrients from foods such as green veggies, low-sugar fruits, and healthy fats, while avoiding certain foods like gluten, can benefit those with thyroid disease. (1)

We’ve put together a list of thyroid-friendly breakfasts to kick off your day, which include thyroid-healthy ingredients like pasture-raised eggs, nuts, and avocados. These foods contain important amino acids, which, according to animal studies, can help regulate thyroid hormones. They also pack in tons of satiating nutrition. (2)

You may find on this list foods that are labeled goitrogenic, meaning they can possibly interfere with thyroid function. These foods include things like sweet potatoes and broccoli. You shouldn’t worry, though: Goitrogens are considered safe in moderation.

In fact, studies show goitrogens only tend to be problematic when you’re not getting enough iodine in your diet. (3)

On that note, let’s get to the goodies! Help support your thyroid every morning with these nourishing, hearty breakfast ideas.
