If you're a mom with Hashimoto's disease, you know that breakfast can be a real challenge. You have to be careful about what you eat, because if you eat something that triggers your symptoms, it can make the rest of the day really tough. But at the same time, you need to make sure you're getting enough nutrients to keep your energy levels up. So what's a mom with Hashimoto's supposed to do?
There are a few things that you should keep in mind when you're planning your breakfast. First, you want to make sure that you're getting enough protein. This will help to keep your energy levels up and prevent any blood sugar spikes that could trigger your symptoms. Second, you want to include some healthy fats in your breakfast. This will help to keep you full and satisfied until lunchtime. And finally, you want to make sure you're getting some fiber. This will help to regulate your digestion and prevent constipation, which can also trigger Hashimoto's symptoms.
Some good breakfast options for moms with Hashimoto's include eggs (cooked in olive oil or butter), bacon or sausage (look for brands that are sugar-free and nitrate-free), avocado toast (on gluten-free bread), or a smoothie made with almond milk, protein powder, and berries.
Breakfast is definitely a challenge for moms with Hashimoto's disease. But by keeping a few things in mind, you can easily find a breakfast that will give you the nutrients you need without triggering your symptoms. So don't despair - there are plenty of delicious options out there!
