Does anyone have any good recipes?
At the mo I'm having uninteresting
Rice protein powder...a bit yuk...
Quinoa
Pineapple juice
Hemp milk

This is ok I guess but am wanting to experiment a bit more.
I have some blueberry concentrate and some carob which could be interesting.
Any ideas on how to disguise the taste of the rice protein powder? I'm not using that much either.

I'm trying to have a high protein diet to help my hashimoto's.

Would be grateful for any suggestions.
Thanks 🙂

How high protein and why?

Grains and dairy are by far more important to eliminate. Inculuding rice. Also by eliminating and foods you may be intolerant to. Going on a autoimmune protocol  diet cross referenced with your SWAMI would probably take you the furthest. Sometimes an elimination diet is the best thing we can do even if we don't want to eliminate. That's the whole purpose of the autoimmune protocol. Once you e done that for a period of time you can slowly add one food at a time back and see how you feel. Although we don't always FEEL things, they show up elsewhere like our thyroid or heart or joints etc

We only need a certain amount of protein and anything above and beyond is wasted. We can only absorb so much. The general rule is your IDEAL weight  in kg ( or pounds divided by 2.2)   Multiplied by .8-1.  

Why don't you eat your protein??

You are right mother I know...but even though I've got the other meals figured out during the day am finding breakfast difficult.
Rice is a diamond on my swami...😪
My protein intake is probably covered during the rest of the day...I have made a LOT burgers for the freezer to have one a day for lunch with veggies.
But I need something easy for breakfast....and...I've just got a great smoothie making machine to make it easy.
I don't necessarily have to have protein in the morning, but I thought to do so was a good thing?
I could do smoothies with fats and vegetables...but need some ideas...
I used to have what I thought was a healthy breakfast with lots of yoghurt and berries with grains soaked overnight in juice...
I have been very good with cutting out all gluten and dairy so far 🙂

Just my two cents. Grains are horrible for your thyroid, rice included. Rice is one of the highest glycemic foods so not a good choice in the morning either. Most of us have diamond foods that we don't tolerate. You don't need to eat them because they're diamonds. I have loads of diamonds I can't eat because of my health issues or digestion. I have tons of carbs as a diabetic and tons of high oxalate foods weigh kidney stones.

As far as breakfast. How about an avocado smoothie with cilantro, celery, romaine, spinach, whatever you like. You  could have a hard boiled egg with it.  I typically have avocado chopped on a lettuce wrap with a thin piece of organic turkey. OR I make herbed turkey meatballs with just herbs, no grains, eggs etc. Sometimes I crumble one of those into avocado. I used to roast a huge pan of various veggies and reheat some and have a small piece of salmon.

You can have left overs from the night before.

Sounds like you got your freezer!!

Happy to hear gluten and dairy are gone. But it's all grains. And they are one of the worst foods. Sorry

I've used rice protein powder.  It lends a grittiness to the drink.  I'm afraid I just continued to suffer with that unpleasant mouthfeel until the powder was all used up.

Egg protein powder is so much smoother.  Even hemp powder blended better for me, but if you use it with "reddish" ingredients, the drink will have an unappetizingly brown appearance.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I do pea organic protein power, a load of broccoli or kale, sometimes adding cilantro, flaxseed oil, spiralina, fresh ginger (just throw it in skin and all), turmeric powder, carob powder, banana, sometimes pumpkin puree, I always also add flax or hemp seeds, sometimes cinnamon, stevia/vegie glycerine mixture and sometimes other small amounts of fruit and actually if the shake is too stringent sometimes I add a splash or two of almond milk.   I completely dislike the rice protein powders and rice is also bad for me even though my swami says it's a beneficial...  Always my shakes are made for two.. my husband and I.  This shake has been one of the the healing forces in our recovery (besides beef bone broth), from the horrid bronchitis we've had lately.  It only took 10 days vs. 3-4 weeks for others trying to recover.  WE do this shake every other day.  

I can only speak from my own experience with the shakes.  They do nothing bad to either of us.. they help us alot and we love them.   So use your imagination and listen to your body.. that is the best voice.  Try different things!

They are fab and love smashing them into my avocado. I just use ground turkey and add sage, oregano and rosemary and use a cookie scoop. They're great with sauces too or put into broth with steamed. veggies as a quick soup

In fact I'm waiting to have them with lunch crumbled into avocado chunks with bits of red onion!!

Pea protein and rice protein was ok inside my green smoothie with pinneaple juice,i add some honey for sweetness or dates or I blend a fruit together.

If it doesn't need to be a smoothie,you can have omelette with 1 yolk and 3 whites,or even blend the whites inside a smoothie.There is a snack made from egg whites  that looks like chips very tasty,contains a little cheese,if you want it I can give you the rec.
Best protein morning meal for me so far is meatballs bite size.

I admit that some of my ideas have been mentioned.

--I like the idea of an egg in the morning, if it's protein you need. You can cook it in typical ways or bake (you can do it in advance, too) little egg muffin-frittata things with stuff in 'em you like.  OR
--You could make some sort of quiche-like tart that lasts several days - keep it in the fridge, then heat up a slice for breakfast...Talk about easy.  

--Hardboil some eggs and leave them in the fridge in a closed container, with their shells on. Use them one at a time - you could make a devilled egg for a quick a.m. breakfast/snack.

--You could use egg-protein powder, which someone else mentioned.

--You could use your smoothie maker and use nut butter in a beverage for protein and fat.

--I occasionally buy a Turkey Paleo Bacon. Very easy to add some of that, if it's okay on your diet, to whatever else you're doing for breakfast.

Great ideas, thank you everyone.
Ok so I won't feel so bad ditching the rice protein powder...
I have never come across egg protein powder so I shall have a look for that, and the hemp powder.
Avocados and turkey balls sound great...i don't remember seeing minced turkey in our supermarkets in the U.K. but I shall definitely seek it out.
And the omelette idea is great I can have some chopped veg already prepared in the fridge to add to it.
And yes it will be good/interesting to experiment with the smoothie maker...
Thanks for all your fab suggestions.
Alas Mother the new fridge freezer hasn't yet arrived...it's on a delay...but fortunately I have a freezer at work so all my burgers are there ready for me to have them for work lunches.

Salmon topped with avocado is great too. Side of pre roasted or fresh roasted steamed veg. Meal done.
I take my prot in out of the freezer at night and it's defrosted in the am ready to go.

I'm sure you can find minced turkey or chicken. I generally buy organic found in the freezer in a roll but fresh is usually available too. Not always organic. I prefer to by pass hirmones antibiotics and GMO so I lean toward organic.

Mother, I have been snacking on avocado slices wrapped in pastrami, just wondered if you  have you tried this combo? It's very good and easy.
Amazone, the MAP Tabs look really interesting, I've just googled them.
Are you an athlete or recovering from illness?
What do you think of them?
I have a physical job and am very curious about them now that you have mentioned them 🙂

Brimstone,

I hav enot tried that combo but it does sound good. I have done that with turkey slices though. That's my BF but wrapped in a piece of lettuce. I used to love salami with cream cheese!!!

That could be your BF.  No reason you can't have the same thing twice. I find avocado very filling at BF. Actually always haha.

I bet you're excited for your new freezer. What kind of veggies are you having for lunch?  Lately for dinner I'm craving steamed bok choy and asparagus drizzled with garlic oil , sage and oregano.  But that's good on anything.

Incredibly excited about the new fridge freezer Mother, but I won't get in now until after Christmas...we'll unless there's a Christmas miracle...
My new lunch regime is beef burger with salad of mixed leaves, chopped fresh coriander (cilantro), finely chopped red onion, avocado and asparagus sprinkled with pumpkin and sesame seeds, with a dressing of either just olive oil and salt or a dressing of flax, sesame, maple syrup and olive oil.
It's very good and fresh and crunchy. I often have a leftover root vegetable mash that I heat up too, when I need something hot inside.
I've just got my adrenal profile back which isn't very good so more emphasis on the proteins and fats...
DHEA is v low too...
I kind of expected these results but it didn't make it any easier to see it written down 😪
Sooo...on with diet tweaking...and yes you are right about the grains 🙂 I shall try harder...

Well BluesSinger...I have to admit that I'm a bit of an olive oil collector...
When friends and family go on holiday they all seem to know this and seek me out wonderful samples.
The best I've ever had though came from a small independent olive farm in Provence France, we went there last year on holiday and brought back several different bottles to try...as well as the wine 🙂.
In France olive oil tasting is a little like wine tasting and medals are awarded to the best.
This year we met a lovely local Cypriot on a trip to Cyprus and he gave me a wonderful bottle of a first press of his families own olive grove oil.
Corsica most recently produced fabulous oil that I feel lucky to have a sample of.
I buy supermarket olive for general use and save my 'lovelies' for salads so I can really taste them.
It really is worth seeking out smaller artisan batches BluesSinger...they taste much different to the general use larger bottles...like really good vintage wine compared to anything you can buy at the supermarket
Hope you find some good ones 🙂

Thank you!  I've always wondered how people can just use olive oil alone on salads when the big commercial brands, even the organic ones, have always tasted like dressed up motor oil to me!!! Now I know why... to choose the best, most fragrant and delicate one is the secret!!!  I will be on the hunt!  

Any suggestions from others for particular Olive Oil's that meet this criteria.. please post them here!!!  thank you!

Brimstone,

Sorry to hear about your test results but it's only been a short time since you've gotten off grains and dairy right? Do need to supplement with DHEA?

I don't know what I would do without and extra freezer ( or two). Right now one is housing about 50#s of turkeys!!! My husband eats turkey almost every day for lunch. I only like organic and I can't find them except around holiday so we STOCK up to say the least.



BluesSinger,

I too have loads of different oils. One of my favorites is Trader Joe's organic garlic oil. I'm fortunate that my co op sells many infused first cold pressed oils such as Italian herb, basil, lemon, orange and garlic. I love the orange on turkey or salmon, the lemon on tuna and basil or Italian herb on veggies.

Mother, I was supplementing with DHEA for a long time but my symptoms were getting increasingly worse and I kept upping my dose to combat my 'hormonal' problems until I got quite worried about how much I was taking. I got my bloods done and thyroid was indicated so I reduced the DHEA until I stopped altogether so that I could get properly tested...so I was kind of on the right tracks by treating my symptoms...
So anyway now I have these results I hope to see a better endo who can prescribe me something other than Levo as am not converting it properly...and start again with the DHEA...
Round and round I go...
...yes freezer...when I get my freezer I shall be stocking up with meat and hopefully turkeys will still be around and avocados...have just learned to peel, halve, destone and freeze so that I can pulverise them in my smoothie maker with protein and fats for breakfast.
I have cartoon images in my mind of your groaning freezers 😊
Am interested in that master amino acid pattern now that Amazone mentioned I shall try and find out a bit more about it.
