This recipe is one of my absolute favorites. It is perfect for women who suffer from PCOS and suits a variety of different diet plans. It is gluten- and dairy-free, paleo, low GI, keto and even whole 30!
Strengthen Your Immune System and Fight Vaginal Infections
What a bomb! The ginger, onion and garlic in it will give your immune system a boost, which is great for women who need to strengthen their defenses. Females with low progesterone levels, a symptom many women with PCOS suffer from, often struggle with frequent vaginal infections. One way to find natural relief is strengthening the immune system and adding good bacteria into your diet. On top of all these immune boosting ingredients, this recipe contains a lot of delicious coconut yogurt that will please your gut and restore balance to your vaginal flora.
Low Carb to Keep Blood Sugar Levels Stable
Replacing regular rice with cauliflower rice is the best thing you can do to control your PCOS. Cauliflower is a vegetable low in carbs that will not spike your blood sugar. High insulin levels make it hard to lose weight and carbs in general like to take a toll on our mental health, because they trigger a neurotransmitter response that makes us feel good. Once blood sugar drops low after a high and our brain is running out of feel good substance, the cycle of cravings continues. Carbs are so addictive! Many women with PCOS also suffer from insulin resistance, which makes cravings even worse, because the energy from food does not reach the cell. This is a great recipe to improve insulin resistance.
Flush Out Excess Estrogen
Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli or Brussel sprouts are excellent food for women who suffer from PCOS. They help flush out excess estrogen from our bodies by supporting the liver and the gut in their detoxification process.
