Three Breakfast Tips for PCOS
Don’t Skip Breakfast
When it comes to PCOS it’s best to eat regular meals. So, this means that you don’t want to skip out on breakfast. By eating breakfast, you can balance your blood sugar and insulin levels throughout the day. a key piece to managing PCOS long term.
Eggs are a powerhouse when it comes to nutrition. They’re also a great source of protein. Make sure you don’t skip out on the yolk and aim for 1-2 eggs as a serving. Specifically, eggs are packed with nutrients like omega-3 fats, choline and vitamin D. When possible, opt for organic and pasture raised eggs.
Keep Carbs Low
You don’t have to totally avoid carbs. That is just a myth when it comes to PCOS. It is important though, that carbs are minimal in the morning. Since you were likely just asleep for a while, the body is more sensitive to swings in blood sugar. If the first thing you do is eat a bowl of cereal or a few slices of toast, you will cause a major swing in blood sugar. Then, later in the day you will likely feel angry, hungry and tired.
Instead, opt for a protein rich meal and pair a small serving of fruit, a starchy veggie or ~ 1/4 cup oatmeal on the side.
