All healthy diets for better management of PCOS symptoms should include steaming. It’s the perfect cooking process to get the most out of delicate foods like fish and certain vegetables such as cauliflower, zucchini and broccoli.
For example, broccoli retains 80% of its vitamin C content when steamed, compared to 33% if boiled.
Cutting up the vegetables shortens the cooking time and thus minimizes the loss of nutrients. But be careful not to cut them up too small, otherwise there will be a reverse effect as a greater surface area of the vegetables will be exposed.
To enhance the flavor, put bay leaves, parsley, sprigs of thyme, coriander seeds, melon, garlic and other seasonings in the steaming water.
