Home made brown bread (low iodine diet safe)


I must say: getting a bread machine is life-changing. Mine is from late 2016, but I haven’t started using it until this year, when I had start the low iodine diet.

Now I can’t imagine myself buying bread again, since it’s very easy, cheap, and much more tasty than what you’d get from a supermarket.

I got this recipe from this amazing Cookbook targeted to thyroid cancer patients when I was desperately trying to find creative meals to save my days through LID before my radioactive treatment. Mission accomplished. I’m even trying some variations of it, such as adding nuts or even garlic.

Betty’s Bread Recipe (by Betty S. from Massachusetts)


  • 2 teaspoons of dried active yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 teaspoon of non-iodised table salt
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil (I used organic rapeseed oil)
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water

Put all the ingredients in the bread machine and let it go. For Kenwood, use program 1, thick crust, 750g. For variation, you can add 1/2 cup raisins, nuts, sunflower seeds, or oatmeal. You can also substitute sugar for the honey.
