2. Baked potato
Potatoes are an excellent source of iodine; however, in order to get this vital nutrient from a potato, your best bet is to bake it instead of mash it; and, make sure you eat the skin. Most of the nutrients that potatoes offer are found in the skin. A medium baked potato will give you about 60 mcg of iodine, or around 40 percent of the daily recommended intake. You’ll also get other important nutrients, including potassium, fiber, and several vitamins. Enjoy a baked potato as a side dish, or turn it into a meal by topping it with low-fat sour cream, cheese, or even broccoli.
