PLANT BASED WEEK EATING WITH PCOS!

Vegetarian and Vegan diets have a lot of health benefits, from lower blood sugar levels, aiding with weight loss, loads of nutrients your body needs. Now, eating with PCOS comes with extra challenges when trying to adopt a vegan or vegetarian diet as wholesome foods used to get needed your macros and micro-nutrients usually are high carbohydrate foods. 

This is why if you wish to adopt a plant based diet, it will be more work, and may lead to the need for additional supplements ( if you’re like me and not a fan of pills, you’ll need to put in a lot of work). I’m my own guinea pig, so I’m testing, MY PLANT BASED WEEK EATING WITH PCOS! (Also I’m a practicing hindu, and it is Navaratri) 

I’m all about meal planning, preparing your meals in advance, measure and weigh the food you consume, and TRACK EVERYTHING.
