Berries for US!!

Dear Raquel,

Here is this week's Health Byte from the PCOSA. 

Berries are Among the Very Best for PCOS Health 
Ounce for ounce, berries have more protective heart-healthy plant antioxidants than almost any other food ... and that's just the start of the advantages of these fruits for women with PCOS.
Because they're high in fill-you-up fiber, they curb hunger which aids in better management of PCOS symptoms whether you're overweight, of normal healthy weight or even lean. For this same reason, they can help to lose or control weight if you need some assistance in this area.
Berries - any berries - not only lower the risk of developing a disease like cancer but also help prevent memory loss.
Aim to eat a cup of berries- fresh or thawed from frozen - at least three times a week. There are plenty of ways to add them to your diet.
  • Tossing them in salads
  • Snacking on them one by one
  • Adding them to yogurt, cereal and smoothies
  • Stirring them into anything you bake
