Now that I am using Celtic sea salt, what about my iodine intake? How do I make sure that I get enough?

|Plant and animal sea life, such as shellfish, white deep-water fish, and brown seaweed kelp, absorb iodine from the water and are great sources of iodine. Garlic, lima beans, sesame seeds, soybeans, spinach, Swiss chard, summer squash, and turnip greens are also good sources of this mineral. :snip:
There are foods that prevent the body from using iodine such as turnip, cabbage, mustard greens, cassava root, soybeans, peanuts, pinenuts and millet. These foods are called goitrogens and excessive consumption can cause goiters.
|Dairy products are high in iodine because of processing and cleaning
agents. Some breads are made with iodate dough conditioners. Meat, poultry, and eggs contain varying amounts of iodine due to feeds and natural plant foods, and the possible use of iodine-containing drugs and cleansers.
