How do I Reverse PCOS? | Roshni Sanghvi

‘Can you reverse PCOS symptoms on a plant-based diet?’

With the uprising of the industrial and packaged food industry, we are also seeing a boom in metabolic diseases such as thyroid and PCOS.

Research just a decade back that showed the prevalence of PCOS in less than 3- 10% of the female population, is now pointing to one in every ten women affected by PCOS. That is a massive jump and if we do not act upon changing our lifestyle and diet, this will only get worse.

Let's explore together the potential causes of PCOD and what food's will help the best reverse this syndrome. Click here to keep reading.

Here are top TEN myths when it comes to PCOS.


Meal plan 27th- 28th Jan

Breakfast- Tofu Scramble.

(Courtesy-nutriplanet live healthy)

Ingredients:

  • 200 g firm tofu

  • 400 g potatoes

  • 100 g mushrooms

  • 100 g tomatoes

  • 2 spring onions

  • 3 handful of spinach

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • Salt

  • Pepper

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 210°C (410°F).

  • Wash the potatoes and cut them into little cubes. Spread on a baking tray, add paprika, salt, and pepper and mix to coat the potatoes in the spices evenly.

  • Wash the mushrooms and tomatoes. Cut them in half and add them to the baking tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are crispy.

  • In the meantime, heat a pan with a splash of water over medium-high heat. Wash the spring onions and cut them into rings.

  • Add the white part of the onion to the pan and save the greens for later. Saute the onions for 1-2 minutes.

  • Add the tofu. You can chop it into small cubes or crumble it into the pan. I find that crumbling gives it a more "scrambled" look.

  • Fry the tofu for 5 minutes, adding more water as necessary. Then add the turmeric, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cook for another 5 minutes.

  • Wash the spinach. Cook the spinach for 1 minute, either in a saucepan or in the microwave.

  • When the potatoes are done, assemble everything in a bowl. Top with the green parts of the spring onion and salt and pepper to taste.
