Chicken Nectarine Salad

by Lauren Allen on Dec 25, 2022

This is one of my favorite summer salads to create when I have some leftover roasted chicken or veggies lying around and repurpose it into a delicious, new, PCOS friendly meal!Ā 

This salad is packed with nutrient dense foods that help our overall health as well as fight the root causes of PCOS like blood sugar dysregulation, inflammation, and gut microbiome imbalances.Ā 


ChickenĀ 


Chicken contains nutrients linked to mood. The amino acid, tryptophan, is responsible for raising serotonin levels (aka our ā€œhappy hormoneā€) in the brain.Ā 
Chicken is also a great source of Vitamin B12 and choline, both of which are important for hormone health and fertility.Ā 

Brussel sproutsĀ 


Did you know - just Ā½ cup of brussels sprouts contains 2 grams of fiber!? Fiber promotes a healthy gut microbiome and digestion, as well as helps regulate blood sugar levels.Ā 
Brussel sprouts also contain antioxidants which neutralize free radicals that promote inflammation. Since inflammation is one of the underlying root causes of PCOS, weā€™re always looking to include more antioxidant rich foods in our meals!Ā 

Nectarines


Nectarines are around 85 percent water, so they keep you hydrated! They also contain many antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins.Ā 
Pro tip - No need to peel it! Eating the fruitā€™s skin will boost your overall intake of the nutrients it contains. Just make sure you wash it well.Ā
