The Great Thing about Blueberries

Blueberries are wonderfully sweet tasting naturally. They can be used in a variety of recipes, from blueberry pies, blueberry tarts, fruit smoothies, or just eaten as a snack alone. Hopefully it's a fruit you already enjoy eating so that it will be easy to add to your underactive thyroid diet. 

If you have a family member that should be eat them, but doesn't like the taste of blueberries try what I do and sneak a few into a strawberry smoothie. Sure the strawberry smoothie will turn a little purple in color and that kind of gives away your sneaky little trick, but I found that they can handle it when it doesn't taste so over powering with blueberry taste. Sometimes you have to do what's best for them whether they like it or not! If it is you, that doesn't like the taste of blueberries you have to try to trick yourself.(ha ha) You may find that you will acquire a taste for them if given the chance.

Underactive thyroid problems are of such wide range, and you can see from the list of the blueberry benefits that these are problems that thyroid patients have to face. It is easy to see that the blueberry should be included in your underactive thyroid diet.
