    re: RAW/deydrated KALE VS BAKED KALE (Hypothyroidism) HELP!!!

    ladies, gentlemen, comrades

    I have suffered with Hypothyroidism and after eating fair amounts of raw kale or more commonly dehydrated kale crisps, symptoms flared up including fatigue, mood changes and neck swelling.

    I am aware this is relatively uncommon but with the prevalence of raw/dehydrated kale crisps it is an issue that needs to be discussed.

    According to various sources such as livestrong.com (I am unsure of its validity), baking/cooking kale kills the goitrogens that lead to thyroid problems.

    At what temperature would one retain as many nutrients as possible but also kill the goitrogens?

    Would I be correct in saying baking under 100 degrees is essentially dehydrating, meaning the goitrogens will be in tact?

    cheers

    Not sure about the answer to the question you actually asked but try asking yourself another question. Do I really *need* to be eating this foul tasting tough green stuff anyway in any form?

    maybe she doesn't find the taste foul.

    Yes, baking under 100 is dehydration. As for nutrient retention, I don't know much about temperature for that, but I wouldn't stress about it.

    Maybe not but there is a whole thread going in the recipe section all about how to make kale palatable, how to disguise it's true flavor and texture. So there are a lot of people eating it who really don't like it. They are just finding the way in which it tastes the least offensive.

    I just don't see the point. Too many people eat kale because they feel they are "supposed to".

    I agree with Paleobird.

    if you eat it raw you introduce so many toxins and anti-nutrients that even if you cooked it for 6 days and 7 nights you'd get more nutrients. Only a sum are bioavailable anyway.

    Yeah, got to agree with Derpamix and PB - if it causes you problems to eat it, why bother trying to find a way around it? Plenty of other foods out there. I don't much for veggies myself - my system runs better on eggs, seafood, meats, fruits, tubers etc. if it doesn't work for you, don't eat it.

    Cook the shit out of it and congratulate yourself for eating it at all.

    PS there are all kinds of other vegetables out there that are also nutritious.

    No worries.

    Raw kale sounds disgusting. If you cook it with a lot of fat, some spices (smoked paprika), and a splash of apple cider vinegar it can be decent, but unless you have some reason that you must eat kale, don't eat it if you don't like it. It can be healthy, but it is far from essential.

    This article about kale at BulletproofExec is linked to just now in the paleo reddit. I have no stance but since I saw it I figured I should share it here The Kale Shake is Awesome – So Upgrade It
