I am awaiting more blood work but more than likely I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. My thyroid does not make enough hormones (hypothyroidism). I am kind of relieved to be finding this out and getting it treated because for some time I have felt a little off. A few months ago I had complained about a new birth control generic I was given and how it was making me irritable and depressed sometimes. Now I think it was my thyroid all along! I also relate to the other symptoms like fatigue, itchy skin/hair loss, and constipation. (TMI, lol) With hypothyroidism, it can be very difficult to lose weight because your metabolism is slower. Medicine will help regulate my thyroid but I have been proactive about researching what I can do to be my healthiest while all of this is getting figured out.
Low glycemic index foods, gluten free and NO refined, processed sugars and carbs. Basically everything I crave! But I am being proactive and searching for recipes and meal ideas to help me feel my best!
Hence this no carb pizza crust. I found the ORIGINAL recipe here. I could not find almond meal at my grocery store so I used flax meal. While I was mixing the ingredients I was not optimistic about this crust.
But it really wasn't that bad. I used to make pizzas using wheat tortillas or wraps and the taste is similar to that. I think if I added turkey pepperonis or some other toppings it would be more appealing. I was just playing in the kitchen this time around!
