Please forgive me for having missed this post.
Regarding goitrogenic foods:

There are certain foods that may impact thyroid function, which are described as goitrogenic because they can increase the chance of
developing a goiter by decreasing thyroid hormone production.

Patients with hypothyroidism are often advised to avoid brussels sprouts, spinach , broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, peaches,
pears, strawberries, mustard greens, kale, and radishes, among other very healthful foods. Soy is also considered to be goitrogenic.

Here’s the thing. The incidence of consuming these foods and disrupting thyroid hormone production is just about gone if they are cooked.

Taking thyroid meds at a time of day when these foodas are not consumed is generally recommended.
