I didn't know almonds could be goitrogenic. Hmmm learn something new everyday
I was about to suggest carrying around a little container with a few almonds, brazil nuts and cashews as these 3 nuts combined are of the same protein value as if you had eaten meat. But if you have an allergy to almonds i don't know how you would go with fresh?
I try to stay away from soy if possible, but it's in EVERYTHING!!!! I have estrogen excess and the last thing i want is adding soy to raise my estrogen even more. It's hard though as soy is in all shop bought goods. I do my own cooking and use fresh foods as much as is possible, but sometimes you do have to buy things from the supermarket and they do disguise soy in many different ways eg: vegetable oil, vegetable gum, lecithin and i'm sure there are others.
Hypo thyroid and adrenal issues are both listed as a symptom of excess estrogen. So soy might be fine for the people going through menopause, but not for us who aren't. I often think of simply switching back to butter as it doesn't contain all these other additives, particularly soy, which i don't want due to my thyroid and my estrogen excess.
