Lentils are a great food for PCOS and hormonal balance
About 75% of women with PCOS suffer from insulin resistance. Reversing this disease and keeping blood sugar stable, even if you don’t have insulin resistance, is key to a hormonal balancing lifestyle and healthy weight loss. This recipe contains a lot of vegetables, including onions, garlic, celery, leek, carrots and kale. Vegetables are usually low in carbs and don’t spike blood sugar. Lentils and meat (should be organic and grass-fed) are good sources of protein.
Making Lentil Soup with Butternut Squash
The Soup that Fights Inflammation
Inflammation often lies at the root of many diseases including insulin resistance, diabetes, IBS or heart disease. Olive oil, vegetables, lentils and butternut squash fight inflammation and support a healthy digestive system. They are also rich in fiber. A diet high in fiber helps in estrogen and testosterone metabolism.
