PCOS Diet Recipes
A PCOS diet does not have to be restrictive at all. In fact, we highly recommend that you begin consuming a wide variety of natural foods (including certified organic meats) to kick-start your journey to recovery. PCOS patients need to watch what they eat, because they can easily gain weight from consuming too many calories.
Hormonal conditions such as PCOS can also affect a person’s basal metabolic rate, so it’s important that you have a target caloric intake every day, and that you support your metabolism by exercising regularly.
Regular exercise improves the body’s ability to naturally burn off excess calories. Exercise also helps to restore hormones to their former levels and, while exercise alone cannot cure PCOS, it is a key component in any PCOS management plan.
Here are some basic PCOS recipes that you can try at home:
Wholemeal blueberry muffins
To create wholesome blueberry cakes at home you will need
two cups of wholemeal flour,
1 ½ cups of blueberries,
a dash of natural vanilla essence,
four teaspoons of vegetable oil,
a quarter cup of fresh non dairy milk,
a quarter cup of sliced, ripe bananas,
half a tablespoon of lemon zest.
Begin this recipe by mixing the flour with all the fruit. Once the fruit has been tossed in, transfer the flour and fruit mixture into a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, and use a kitchen mixer to blend the ingredients at “high” for thirty seconds. Transfer the resulting mix to seven to eight muffin molds, and bake for twenty minutes. Don’t forget to preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit before baking your blueberry cakes. Enjoy your healthy blueberry cakes warm!
Mushroom and Vegetable Medley
This is a convenient take on a Chinese classic. You can consume the resulting dish with brown rice. For this recipe, you will need two cups of oyster mushrooms (feel free to mix different kinds of edible mushrooms), a tablespoon of minced ginger, light soy sauce (adjust to taste), garlic, onions, ground black pepper, oyster sauce (adjust to taste), 2 cups of snow peas, and some green onions (half a cup should do it).
Begin this recipe by heating a pan and pouring about two tablespoons of vegetable oil (olive oil or canola oil are good choices). Sautee the garlic, onions, and ginger. When the onion becomes tender, add the mushrooms, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
Midway through the cooking process (about five minutes at medium heat), add the snow peas. Don’t forget to mix the ingredients around, to evenly flavor all of the vegetables and mushrooms. The dish is ready when the snow peas are tender.
The snow peas and mushrooms will cook together nicely, and there is no need to cook this dish for an extended period of time. Make sure that you wash all your ingredients thoroughly before cooking. Certified organic does not mean free of dust and bacteria; always wash fresh produce before cooking to avoid any foodborne illnesses.
