Protein is a crucial staple for women with PCOS. Most women with PCOS have some level of insulin resistance. Protein will help to fill you and will not spike your blood sugar levels. The name of the game for women with PCOS is to stabilize your blood sugar levels. You should be eating protein with every meal, especially with breakfast. (You can read more about why we love a hearty breakfast, here). This low carb quiche is loaded with protein from the egg base, and the vegetables mixed in also offer a ton of value. They provide fiber, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that your body needs to optimally function. We love that this recipe can be made in advance. Just heat it up the next morning and enjoy a nutritious and filling breakfast!
