5 Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Diet Foods You're Not Eating!

  1. 1. Banish PCOS Diet Boredom Sticking to a PCOS diet doesn't have to be bland and boring. There are literally thousands of foods to choose from that taste great and can help you to ease your PCOS. Here are a few unique foods that you can try...
  2. 2. Krill Oil You've probably heard of the benefits of fish oil. Well, krill oil is a lot like fish oil, only with a few differences. Krill is a shrimp-like crustacean that is higher in omega-3 fatty acids than fish oil. It's also better absorbed, has more antioxidants (astaxanthan), and less toxins than fish oil. The biggest benefit of krill oil for PCOS is that it can decrease HDL cholesterol. Women with PCOS are at risk for heart problems like high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
  3. 3. Quinoa Quinoa (pronounced: keen-wah) is an ancient South American seed. It is related to the spinach family. Crunchy, fluffy quinoa is high in protein. It's a bit like rice. However, it doesn't spike blood sugar like rice. With PCOS, quinoa helps to decrease insulin resistance and prevents high blood pressure. Quinoa is high in fiber and gluten-free. You can eat it in warm or cold dishes in place of rice.
  4. 4. Kombucha Fermented foods are great for anyone with PCOS. They add “good” live bacteria to the digestive tract. Kombucha is a fermented tea with a mildly sweet and vinegary bite. It contains a bit of alcohol. Though not enough to make you tipsy. Women with PCOS have higher rates of irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders than the general population. You can brew kombucha at home or you can buy it at any specialty store.
  5. 5. Chia Seeds Little chia seeds hail from Latin America. They contain the highest levels of essential fatty acids of any vegetable. Chia seeds decrease inflammation, have calcium, fiber, and protein. Chia seeds turn into a gel when mixed in liquids. The seeds aid in constipation, digestive problems, and promote hormonal balance. Chia seeds are best used to thicken soups and can be sprinkled on salads.
  6. 6. Pea Protein Never heard of pea protein? You're not alone. Crushed yellow peas are great as a vegan/vegetarian source of highly bioavailable protein. About ¼ cup of pea protein contains roughly 24 grams of protein. Eating pea protein will help you curb hunger and keep PCOS weight gain in check. Pea protein also regulates blood sugar and lowers cholesterol levels. Use it in baking in place of white flour.
