Mini keto for PCOS meal plan
Looking for inspo? The web is packed with everything from 7-day kickstart plans to 12-week overhauls. Pick and choose from recipes you like the look of, and use our suggestions below to get you out of a rut, when you’re sick of the avo-bacon-lettuce combo.
Bear in mind if you’re doing full, serious keto, you’ll need to keep a tight focus on nutritional info, especially the fats, carbs, protein and sugars you’re getting from each serving.
Option 1 – Veggie omelet (using 2 eggs, olive oil and leftover veggies like bell peppers or swiss chard)
Option 2 – Avocado green smoothie (using full fat coconut milk, greens, avo, a knob of ginger & small amount of fruit, such as peach or strawberries)
Option 1 – Cobb egg salad (add bacon, romaine lettuce, avocado and tomatoes, ground pepper & a squeeze of lemon for a winning combo)
Option 2 – Lettuce wraps (stuffed with chicken thigh, avocado, roasted peppers and sea salt)
Option 1 – This yummy asparagus and salmon with garlic lemon & butter
Option 2 – This peanut butter chicken curry – trust me, it’s unreal
We’d go for pork rinds with guacamole, mini skewers with a wedge of lettuce, avocado & chicken, or a mug of bone broth blended with coconut milk and cilantro for a satisfying pick-me-up.
Depending on how you’re doing keto, emphasizing savory tastes over sweet can be a crucial part of the eating mindset.
For consistency and steady weight loss, we’d suggest using that breakfast smoothie suggestion above as an opportunity to indulge, or opting for low-glycemic fruits like berries, peaches and watermelon, topped with whipped cream (coconut, if you’re not doing dairy), and a sprinkle of vanilla for some natural sweetness.
Cinnamon is great, too, and one of my favorites is a little stewed peach with cinnamon and heavy whipping cream, as a real treat.
