Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I like all the ideas listed.
I have read that soy is not good for people with thyroid problems. To be honest, I don't know if this is true or not. I can eat soy at times with no problems, but when consumed in the morning, I get sleepy. But...I have eaten a bowl of oatmeal and gotten sleepy. I wonder if I should try the smoothie idea? or maybe I should be eating lighter? I'm just at a loss. Used to, I would get sleepy after lunch regardless of what it was that I ate. Now, it's the mornings that get to me. Today, I ate a bowl of low sugar cereal with rice milk and about an hour later, I was asleep.
Iceflower, what is LSA? and when you say soaked raw oats, I take it that's different from oatmeal in the box??
Also, I have seen oatmeal type mixtures in the bulk bins at Whole Foods. Are these cereals supposed to be cooked or eaten raw? Some of them look like they have lots of protein in them, but without the sugar. I just wasn't sure how to fix them. I wonder if something like that would be good in yogurt. I also wonder if I should skip eating soy products in the morning so as not to toy with my meds. Perhaps I'm eating too soon after taking my thyroid meds.
Again, thanks for all the suggestions. I need all the help that I can get.
