PCOS Chocolate Chip Cookies
When you’re making changes to manage your PCOS, you might feel upset with giving up your favorite comfort foods.
These foods are delicious, sweet and have an indulgent taste. Obviously you still want them! I would prefer to give individuals alternatives that they enjoy as opposed to feeling deprived.
Or, eventually you can even learn to be a taste eater (enjoying the taste of a few bites) vs. a quantity eater… but that’s a whole coaching topic!

As you shift your eating habits, you want to find something that is sustainable! So instead of restricting yourself, which is ultimately followed by a guilty binge, enjoy these delicious and healthy chocolate chip cookies on occasion!
