Controlling your diet to better manage PCOS symptoms doesn’t mean all snacks are off the agenda.
Indeed, many natural snacks can help you feel better by satisfying cravings that might otherwise worsen multiple symptoms of your condition by boosting weight gain.
A healthy diet is vital for improving PCOS health and snacks play a role. So place some delicious fresh fruit on a counter at home or in a drawer at work for the next time you’re in the mood for a candy bar.
A handful of omega 3-rich walnuts quickly take the edge off hunger, as can some carrots with a black bean dip or lean protein like an occasional hard-boiled egg.
Be sure to look out for healthy snacks that come already portion-controlled for you. Fruit, like a banana or apple, and vegetables such as radishes and celery sticks are obvious examples.
Small packets of almonds or containers of low fat yogurt also come diet-sized and are easily portable. Keep some almonds in your pocketbook and yogurt in the fridge at home or at the office. Take the time right now to jot down a list of 5 healthy snacks you will purchase the next time you’re at the grocery store.
