Hi there- I know this diet sucks and the first time I barely ate anything.. But guess what there is a better way of cooking. Here is a website to check out that gives reciepes.. I'm on the diet right now and this website has made my life a little bit better.. Good luck..Kosher salt is the way to go while making all your foods from scratch.. here's the web address:

I just got done with my low iodine diet. sssheesh I went cold turkey vegetarian for two weeks. Then I went to the Butcher shop. I learned to eat better. I learned "everything" you buy has salt or soy or whatever it is you cant' have. But yes, the salt that says "no idodine" or none idodine, is the one to use. The recipes from www.thyca.org is helpful. I made some really yucky stuff too. My taste buds or tongue is messed up I think, food as I knew it just doesn't taste the way I remember it did. I'm told it goes away and food starts to taste better. Its truley a learning process.
I wish you well. Its a hard diet. But you do what you gotta do for the sake of your health. Its a temporary thing. It gets better.

The Thyroid Cancer Survivors webpage that the others have listed is an excellent resource.

I will caution you with the pasta sauce, it calls for WAY TOO MUCH SALT. I made it how it is written and it was very salty, you should probably cut it in half!
