Apple and Onion Soup

This soup is crammed with chromium. Chromium is a component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which helps maintain normal blood glucose levels by making insulin more efficient. This will fight insulin resistance which is often associated with PCOS. Furthermore, chromium promotes weight loss due to its ability to help control cravings, reduce hunger, and control fat in the blood.

Unlike traditional gazpacho soup, this cold soup uses unpeeled tomatoes and unpeeled cucumber in order to reap the maximum health benefits (most of the fiber and vitamins tomatoes and cucumber provide are in their skin). It also uses wholemeal bread instead of white bread.

Beet and Carrot Soup

Beets are loaded with magnesium. Research indicates that there is a strong link between magnesium deficiency and insulin resistance associated with PCOS.

Magnesium appears to be the most common micronutrient found to be depleted in insulin resistant people.
