Unusual question, I know... I need ideas for foods I can eat for breakfast, only they can't contain iron or calcium, which inhibit the absorption of my thyroid medication.
I'd guess fruits and veggies would be low in both.
You could eat a piece of fruit with your medication, then have real breakfast a couple hours later.
I think I'd do the same.
Egg whites have very little...I'm not sure there are any real foods with absolutely no calcium or iron in them. As for breakfast foods, most grains are fortified, so that's out. Nuts have iron and some calcium. Dairy is obvious. Most fruits and veggies have some. Even onions have some calcium.
