Special Diets 3

Low/No Iodine Diet

I was wondering if anyone else out there is cooking for a low or no iodine diet as a result of prepping for radioactive iodine therapy associated with thyroid cancer.

A friend of mine is undergoing this treatment, and I am helping out with her eating. The no-eat list includes: all dairy, all soy (except oil and lecitin), anything from the ocean (fish, seaweed, sea salt), egg yolks, any processed food with salt (because it does not identify iodized or not), and of course, iodized salt.

So far I have been focusing on getting her homemade bread and some good savories (oven dried tomatoes, pesto, etc) and I did one angel food cake.

Is anyone else dealing with this? What are you cooking? What are you missing?
