The Amazing Nutrients in Eggs 

Egg whites are an amazing source of protein and a fantastic way to start the day! But don’t forget to include an egg yoke or two because this is where all the main nutrients are. The yoke contains vitamins that support bone and immune system health as well as a good metabolism. 

The reason that most people shy away from the yoke is they have been warned about cholesterol. But did you know that this healthy type of cholesterol actually helps your body produce healthy hormones? However, dietary sources of cholesterol have a minimal effect on cholesterol levels in the blood (1) and have actually been shown to improve your cholesterol (2), (3)

Getting Enough Veggies in the Day 

The daily recommendation for vegetable intake is 2 ½ cups per day, and ideally we would get a lot more than that, closer to 5 cups. Vegetables are where most of our nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants come from.

But getting that volume of vegetables every single day can be challenging so getting started first thing in the morning sets you up to succeed. 

Special directions

If you like your eggs more or less done simply experiment with adding 30 seconds at time. Make notes for future because this recipe definitely is best when you don’t keep restarting the microwave. 

How to store and serve

You can meal prep this breakfast by partitioning veggies and seasonings into jars ahead of time and storing in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Then the morning of add eggs to a jar and cook. To take on the go simple replace lid and take with you to enjoy in the next 3 hours.

This amazing, tasty, and clean marinade is free of all the inflammatory ingredients found in most dressings and sauces. It only takes a few simple steps before you can add whatever veggies you enjoy the most. 

A dinner with a delicious combination of protein and vegetables is an amazing way to nourish your hormones. We make this recipe year-round, however, in the summer it is ideal to be able to take the heat of cooking outside to the BBQ. 

This recipe is great for meal prep and I have frequently prepared extra marinade and chicken to freeze together for a future dinner. Then I can just add some veggies while it thaws overnight and viola dinner is ready! 

Grilled Chicken Kabobs Ingredients

Chicken Thighs as a Great Source of Protein

Chicken Thighs as a Great Source of Protein 

Chicken thighs are a bit juicier than chicken breast and as they absorb the flavors from this marinade they are a tender and flavorful source of protein. 

Getting enough protein each day can be a difficult task but recipes like this help to ensure that you are loading up at each meal. 

Coco Aminos

Coconut Aminos 

Coconut aminos are a substitute for soy sauce. While coconut aminos aren’t a significant source of nutrients, they are gluten-free, MSG-free, and lower in sodium without compromising on taste. 

Coconut aminos can be found at most grocery stores including Walmart and of course all the health foods stores such as Whole Foods. 

Special directions

To ensure that the meat and veggies are fully cooked but not dried out I grill them on a piece of foil and pour some of the extra marinades on top of them while cooking. 

How to store and serve 

Once cooked the chicken and vegetables can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. If I am going to be eating them for a second dinner I like to store them uncooked in the refrigerator for 1-2 days and cook when ready to eat them as they are best freshly cooked.

Course: entree
Keyword: Grilled Chicken Kabobs
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1-2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1-2 teaspoons of grated ginger depending on taste
  • salt and pepper to taste

Suggested vegetables (approximately 2 cups)

  • 1 red bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 small zucchini cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion cut into 1-inch pieces

For serving 

  • 3 cups frozen riced cauliflower you can substitute quinoa or wild rice. 

Instructions

  • Place the olive oil, coconut aminos, garlic, tahini, ginger, and salt and pepper in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add the chicken, bell peppers, zucchini, and red onion to the bowl. Toss to coat in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  • When ready to cook,
  • Soak wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers.
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Enjoy

Notes

For leftovers
Only thread as many kabobs as you will eat. Although they do store in the fridge after cooking they are better fresh. Allow the veggies and chicken to marinate until tomorrow's dinner then grill them fresh.

Variations and alternative 

Adding pineapple chunks to these kabobs is a delightful treat! It does add sugar but also adds nutrients and makes them extra special. 

Alternatively to cauliflower rice, you can use quinoa, brown or wild rice. Just be aware that rice will significantly increase the glycemic load of this meal. Quinoa will slightly increase the glycemic load and may be a nice middle-ground option to serve with your kabobs.

FAQ’s

What if I don’t have coconut aminos

You can use soy sauce. Just be aware that soy sauce contains gluten if you are currently trying to eliminate gluten then you will want to find coconut aminos. 

Not sure if you should be avoiding gluten? I recommend following my PCOS Detox program to reset your hormones and then discover what food sensitivities you may have during the 30 days of momentum.

What if I don’t have tahini

 You can skip the tahini, but it makes the marinade creamy and adds a lot of flavor.

Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Snack
Keyword: dairy free, gluten free, Low Glycemic, no added sugar, plant based, Vegan, Vegetarian
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon small clove garlic crushed
  • 2 15-ounce cans of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice depending on desired tang
  • 2 tablespoons tahini more or less to taste
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin optional but recommended
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt or a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water if needed to make the hummus smoother

Options For Garnish:

  • paprika (and or parsley) and an extra drizzle of olive oil. Sesame seeds, feta cheese, olives, and/or a sprinkle of fresh herbs also make a great garnish

Instructions

  • Add garlic, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, and 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil in the food processor alone and run for about 30-45 seconds, then scrape down the sides.
  • Put the lid back on and turn the food processor on, then add up to 3 Tablespoons cold water 1 tablespoon at a time through the top of the food processor while processing until the mixture becomes smooth and desired amount of creamy.
  • Optional: At this point, you can also add another tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and/or lemon juice (if you like it extra lemony!) to help make it even more creamy.
  • Garnish: To serve right away, add your hummus to a small bowl and use the back of a spoon to make a swoosh on top. Sprinkle a few whole chickpeas and about 1-2 tablespoons more of extra-virgin olive oil on top to make it pretty. Add a dash of paprika (not smoked paprika, unless you’re into it) on top for a traditional finish. A big sprinkle of flakey sea salt makes a great garnish, too.

Notes

Homemade hummus will keep in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

FAQ’s

What if I Don’t Have a Food Processor?

No problem you can make hummus in a blender

Blender Method: 

It’s easy for the ingredients to get stuck in the blade and not blend. Here are a few tips to ensure a smooth and creamy hummus from your blender:

  1. Start with some liquid. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and tahini first and blend to combine
  2. Be sure to use crushed garlic or shop finely. You don’t want to get a bite of all garlic because it didn’t mix evenly. 
  3. Add remaining ingredients and blend
  4. Add 1-2 more tablespoons of cold water while blending 
  5. You can also add more extra-virgin olive oil and/or lemon juice to help make it blend if needed.
Why Does My Homemade Hummus Taste Bitter?

Too much tahini, too much garlic, too much lemon juice or blending paprika directly into the hummus can impart bitter flavor. 

With hummus it comes down to your tastes add less tahini, garlic and/or lemon then add a bit more if you want after tasting 

What Can I Use Instead of Tahini?

Cashew is a neutral nut butter and is often used as a base for plant-based dips, sauces, and salad dressings much like tahini. For those with sesame allergies, cashew butter is a seed-free alternative.

What I Can I Use Instead of Chickpeas

White beans (e.g. cannellini beans) make a great substitution for chickpeas if you want to mix things up.

Opting for Homemade Dressing

If you’re like most people, you probably think of salad as a healthy food choice. But what you may not realize is that many salad dressings are actually full of hidden inflammatory fats and added sugar. These ingredients can wreak havoc on your health, contributing to everything from weight gain to chronic disease. The good news is, it’s easy to make your own healthy salad dressings at home. Asian Chicken Crunch Salad is a delicious and easy recipe that uses healthy ingredients like olive oil, coconut aminos, and apple cider vinegar.

Mandarin Oranges

Canned mandarin oranges are often packed in a sugary syrup. This can make the salad very high in sugar. The other option is to use the “sugar free” option, but this often use unhealthy artificial sugars, such as Splenda (sucralose). It’s important to check the ingredients carefully to make sure there is no added sugar or sweeteners. Another option is to use fresh mandarin oranges. This will add a fresher flavor to the salad and will be lower in sugar.

Additionally, this meal is low in sugar and simple carbohydrates, which can help to control blood sugar levels. Overall, grilled chicken and a nutrient-packed salad is a healthy option for women with PCOS.

Best Grilled Chicken

While you can definitely cook or grill your own chicken breast I frequently buy already prepared chicken to add to my salads. 

 A rotisserie chicken is my favorite but it does take a little work to finish preparing when I get home from the grocery store. 

My other favorite is Costco’s chicken skewers. Then I can just microwave one or two and viola I have delicious chicken for my salad. These also freeze amazingly allowing me to stock up and have them easily available. 

 Butcher box, Trader Joes, as well as countless other grocery stores also carry grilled chicken and they can both be kept frozen until ready to heat up and use. Ideally choose organic, hormone free chicken.

 Note, if you are using frozen chicken and meal prepping your lunches I heat up the chicken I need for the next day the night before then store in the fridge with my salad container so that I don’t have any excuse to not pack my lunch the next day. 

How to store and serve 

This salad stores for up to 4 days in the refrigerator making it an amazing meal prep lunch for a busy week. 

For best results store the wet ingredients separately or at the bottom of your container. Then Layer the cucumbers peppers and lettuce on top. Store dressing in a separate container and add just before eating.

This delicious Yellow Chicken Curry is the perfect meal to fill your home with a savory aroma. It’s easy to make, and a great way to enjoy a bowl full of veggies and chicken with a whole new flavor.

Yellow chicken curry is one of my favorite ways to eat vegetables. The curry powder and turmeric give the dish a beautiful yellow color, and the coconut milk makes it rich and creamy. I like to add lots of vegetables to my curry, including onions, carrots, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini. The vegetables soften in the sauce, absorbing all of the delicious flavors. I like to top it with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. Yellow chicken curry is a delicious and healthy way to enjoy a variety of vegetables.

Rice and PCOS

Rice and PCOS

Is rice okay to eat when you have PCOS? Well…..I love rice, but it is important to note that it has a high glycemic index, meaning it turns straight to sugar in your body when you eat it. 

Brown rice and wild rice are better but still not perfect. So my recommendation is to try cauliflower rice. I buy it frozen and eat it in a frying pan with a little olive oil and salt. However, if you really love rice with your curry then I say enjoy it in a small amount! 

How to store and serve 

This recipe can be made ahead and reheated when ready to serve, making it a super easy healthy recipe. 

The yellow chicken curry stores well in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk carton or canned
  • 1 can 15oz coconut cream
  • 1 cup chicken stock + more as needed to thin coconut milk broth.
  • 1 tablespoon swerve sweetener
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp yellow curry powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • salt
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts chopped into bite size chunks. I use rotisserie chicken
  • olive or coconut oil for cooking chicken.
  • 6-8 cups of the following vegetables: Cauliflower Broccoli, Carrots, Zucchini, Onion, Bell Peppers and/or snow peas
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 6 cups cooked Wild rice Quinoa or Cauliflower rice to serve

Instructions

  • In a stock pot combine: coconut milk, chicken stock and all the seasonings. Whisk together, and set aside.
  • To the stock pot add chopped onions and carrots and simmer over medium heat until they soften. Add faster cooking veggies such as cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini and peppers.
  • Bring almost to a boil then reduce heat immediately to a gentle simmer until vegetables are not quite cooked.
  • The curry will taste better with slightly undercooked veggies and the veggies will continue to cook when you turn off the heat.
  • Serve with Wild Rice, Quinoa, or Cauliflower Rice
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Vegetables will continue to cook when you turn off the heat so error on the side of undercooking them.
