Sausage McMuffin (PCOS-Friendly)

 
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 PCOS-friendly 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)
  • Eggs
  • Ghee
  • Almond milk
  • Olive oil
  • Coconut flour
  • Almond flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Avocado

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!

  1. This seems like a very high calorie count for a single breakfast serving! Do you have a rough guideline of how many calories should be consumed per day for pcos following this type of eating plan?

    • Good question! Most sausage products are not an ideal PCOS-friendly meat because they often contain preservatives, sugar and gluten which are best avoided. But it’s fairly easy to buy gluten-free, sugar-free sausages if you shop around a little. You can also make your own using ground meat and spices if you’d prefer to have even more control over the ingredients. I hope that helps!
