Sweet potatoes are an incredible carbohydrate to include in your regular diet for healing PCOS!
While all potatoes offer some hormone balancing benefits, sweet potatoes are definitely our first choice. They’re packed with TONS of hormone balancing nutrients and come in over 400 different varieties worldwide.
This sweet, nourishing, root veggie grows underground and is packed with essential vitamins. They are high in Vitamin C which is essential for hormone production, balanced regulation, and the production of progesterone within the ovaries.
Purple sweet potatoes in particular can even aide in detoxification of heavy metals such as copper, mercury and lead.
Sweet potatoes are also a great source of magnesium – the feel good mineral that helps relax muscles and calm nerves.
Magnesium can also reduce symptoms of depression, insomnia and anxiety, and is an extremely powerful support for women healing from PCOS.
Sweet potatoes offer a generous dose of the antioxidant beta carotene. Beta carotene is converted into Vitamin A within the body. Both are needed for progesterone production as well as healthy, glowing skin and overall vital health.
One of the best benefits of sweet potatoes for women with PCOS is that they are a slow burning carbohydrate, meaning they keep blood sugar levels stable and are loaded with fiber.
Make sure to buy organic AND leave the skins on to get the extra fiber and nutrients!
Sweet potatoes are best enjoyed with some healthy fats like olive or coconut oil. The addition of these healthy fats help the body absorb and utilize the hormone balancing vitamins and minerals available in the sweet potatoes.
Our favorite way to enjoy sweet potatoes is simply roasted with a drizzle of olive oil. Serving them mashed, boiled or baked can be so delicious as well!
Try to include a serving or two of these fabulous root veggies along with an array of colorful veggies and protein.
