Hi I have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
After doing some research I am a little confused with the topic goitrogenic foods. Eg almonds, broccoli millet cauliflower rice potatoe etc

Some sites say to not consume these foods.

Is this true - should you not eat any goitrogenic foods?

It all depends.  Are you on medication for your hypothyroid?  The worst offender is soy.  However, most of the veggies like cauliflower, broccoli and all of that are NOT goitrogenic when cooked.
