This dip incorporates ingredients that are known to be beneficial for managing PCOS symptoms, such as lean protein, healthy fats, and fiber-rich vegetables. Avocado is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, which can help regulate insulin levels and improve satiety. It also provides fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can support overall health. The Greek Yogurt is high in protein and probiotics, and can help manage blood sugar levels and promote a healthy gut.
Enjoy this dip recipe with crisp, fresh vegetables to elevate your intake of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrient-rich options are also low in calories, making them a smart choice for supporting the management of PCOS symptoms. This would be delicious paired with our Kohlrabi Fries recipe!
