The more I'm getting into healthy eating, nutrition and paleo, the more frustrated I get.
As an example:
Since going Paleo 3 months ago, each day, I was eating 5oz of spinach (cooked), then blended into a green smoothie (coconut milk, strawberry, banana). I was proud of myself for incorporating healthy food choices into my diet.
Then, I read that:
Spinach and kale are goitragenic foods that block absorption of iodine and thus depress thyroid function:
I became further frustrated when I considered that I stopped using Morton's iodized salt last year, in favor of un-iodized sea salt because I thought it was the healthier choice.
So, a sea salt eating, spinach-enthusiast might end up with problems making what most people would consider super-healthy choices.
Are there any dietary decisions you made since going paleo that you thought were healthy, that you later learned were un-healthy?
Do you really need a P.H.D. in nutrition to eat a healthy diet?
