PCOS Dinner Bowl Recipe

This is absolutely one of my favorite go-to dinner recipes. It is incredibly simple to make, filled with nutrition and it’s delicious! What more could you ask for in a meal?

I have to admit, over time I have developed an obsession with tahini. It is rich in flavor, provides the perfect creamy texture and is the finishing touch to so many of my meals.

Tahini is ground sesame seeds. It goes great in both sweet and savory dishes. It was originally used in places like Greece, North Africa, Turkey and Iraq. You likely have been consuming it but wasn’t even aware! It’s often used in hummus or baba ghanoush.

So I decided to create a meal around tahini! When I go to create a nutrient dense meal, I ask myself three questions.

  1. Is there a healthy fat?
  2. Do I have enough protein?
  3. Does at least half the plate contain vegetables?

Veggies, protein and healthy fat provide fuel, energy and the nutrition your body needs when it comes to hormone regulation.
