A big lesson that I share with those who participate in my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge is that fat and protein make for the best breakfasts. These are the macronutrients that create a sustaining sense of fullness and they’re key to ensuring good blood glucose regulation.
You’ll see this recipe goes all-in on the whole “fat and protein is good” thesis. If weight loss or insulin regulation is important to you then this is the kind of breakfast that can really help. Give it a whirl and see how long it takes ‘til you feel like snacking.
It also meets the criteria for Keto, Paleo, Whole30, GAPS, and SCD!
Here’s everything you’ll need to make these PCOS-friendly Sausage McMuffins:
- Sausage patties (or beef patties)
- Almond milk
- Olive oil
- Coconut flour
- Almond flour
- Baking powder
While this new PCOS recipe may be inspired by the work of a McDonald’s food scientist, the net result looks more to the liking of a paleolithic primate.
I hope you enjoy it!
P.S. If you are struggling to make the switch to a PCOS diet, I run a free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge every quarter which is the perfect way to really kickstart your health transformation. This live event includes weekly meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, and video lessons, all within a supportive community environment. However, if this recipe has inspired you and you want to get started right away, then I recommend downloading my free 3-Day PCOS Diet Meal Plan as well. It’s a 15-page PDF ebook that contains some of my most popular PCOS recipes, a shopping list ready to go, and some additional information about how to use food to heal your PCOS.
