Just to add a little life, I'll post my RP friendly recipe.

My intention was to make a more stick-to -your- ribs version of Atole which is a Mexican warm drink made from milk and corn meal/masa.
I would like to find an organic, bulk masa but so far am using organic cornmeal.

For each serving;
1 cup milk
1 T masa
a little salt
vanilla and sweetener to taste
Whisk while heating til thick.

To this basic recipe I added an egg which I beat separately and tempered before whisking in.

It turned out to be more like porridge which I ate out of a bowl with a bit of butter.....basically, it turned out like a stove top custard with cornmeal texture.

I cooked it very slowly so the meal was quite soft.

I added just a little sweetener and vanilla and it was too sweet. I am not a fan of sweetened hot cereals and would probably add less/none in the future.

BUT this turned out delicious and I will add it to my breakfast list (which is pretty short).

My next cooking experiment is to come up with a spoon bread like my mom made. It, too, is not sweet but like a baked cornmeal custard....the custard was thicker on the top if I remember correctly.

I'll check out the local co op for a good quality masa.

Hope you are all well and having a great holiday season.

Oh, I almost forgot; I added 1 tsp gelatin at the beginning w the cornmeal and cold milk.

Thanks for posting this! I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy breakfast ideas which contain more protein than your average modern breakfast.

Just diving into Peat to try and heal my hypothyroid since 3 endocrinologists refused me Armour based on my numbers, not my symptoms.
I am reading everything but haven't seen how you can use your pulse and body temp to monitor thyroid function, could you point me somewhere?
Also I may not have gotten to that part yet, but has anyone healed hypo-t with Peat alone and no meds?

Welcome, Miss Red! If you check out the link below, you will find lots of good Ray Peat information on tracking your pulse and temperature to assess your thyroid function.

I personally needed to supplement with thyroid despite following a pro thyroid diet. I think a lot of it depends on your age, diet, and general health.

As you can see, this thread is no longer active although I do still subscribe to it so I will see your comments/questions and respond. You might want to consider joining one of the Ray Peat Facebook groups, such as Ray Peat Inspired or Ray Peat Fans. And there are many Ray Peat articles available for free at raypeat.com.

I also wanted to add that Kate Deering has written an excellent book that is a great “beginners guide“ for someone trying to incorporate Ray Peat’s ideas into their everyday life. You can find out more about the book at the link below.

Default Thyroid meds

I'm having trouble since the manufacturer of my WP Thyroid stopped making it. The substitutes I've tried aren't working for me. My hair is falling out and I am tired. This has been going on since last Sept.

I had switched to WP, when Armour sold once again and the formula was changed. It no longer worked and the price shot sky high, so I switched. Besides the substitutes for Natural Desiccated Thyroid that I've tried, I've also used Cynoplus which Ray says he uses.

Now I am trying Westminster's natural desiccated thyroid. Some say it works...


Will see how it goes. If you look at StopThe Thyroid Madness, you'll see a lot of reports similar to mine.

I am taking Cynomel and Novotiral. Both seem to work well for me.
