Since I was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) a few years ago, I’ve started focusing on adding good fats and more anti-inflammatory ingredients to all of my meals. One thing that I never realized with hormone imbalances and PCOS is how important it is to eat good, healthy fats such as avocado, extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, nuts/seeds (except peanuts), and organic eggs.
Since I started adding more fats, I’ve seen the texture of my skin and hair improve tremendously, and I’ve noticed my hormones have started to balance out. Balanced hormones can mean less painful periods and fewer PMS symptoms. And who doesn’t want less PMS?
Here’s a simple recipe with healthy fats to fuel your hormones. Remember, your hormones NEED fat to work properly. Let go of that "fat-free" mentality from the 1980s and fuel your body with the real fats it needs to get your body working for you, not against you!
