Mushrooms may come in all shapes and sizes from all kinds of backgrounds but the edible varieties provide nutrient powerhouses for a healthy PCOS diet.
Maitake mushrooms, for example, can lower blood sugar levels, add vitamin D to the diet and enhance the immune system, while portobello is a prime source of vital potassium.
Oyster mushrooms may lower LDL “bad” cholesterol by inhibiting an enzyme that’s crucial to cholesterol synthesis. And the humble white button mushroom contains a greater number of antioxidants than the more expensive shiitake variety.
Clean edible mushrooms as you would any other vegetable, just before using. Keeo them dry. If stored wet, moisture speeds up the process of mushrooms becoming spoiled.
