Thyroid health responds well to specific nutrients and foods. If you are trying to lose weight with hypothyroidism and don't know what to eat, you are in the right place. Your thyroid needs specific nutrients for all aspects of making thyroid hormone. If you are suffering with hypothyroidism, or low thyroid, knowing what to eat and what to avoid is very important! 

To begin, gluten and dairy are two areas of food that people with Hashimoto's or autoimmune thyroid disease may have sensitivities to, even if they are mild. Cutting out gluten and dairy is a great place to start if you have a low functioning thyroid. 

Next, I recommend going as organic as possible. Cutting out chemicals and pesticides is a great way to get yourself eating cleaner foods and staying away from artificial sweeteners as well will improve your whole system.

How to Eat Healthy for Less Than $10 Per Day

Welcome to this article on eating healthy on a budget!

Due to student loans and starting my business, my boyfriend and I have been on a quest for the last year and a half to master how to eat healthy on a budget. 

We normally shop weekly for our needs, with the exception being that during this last month with the Coronavirus going around!

We have been stocking up for a couple weeks at a time to minimize going to the grocery store. However, this has not changed our budget. To account for this, we have been freezing items so that they don't go bad.
