I am so pleased that my friend and Revolution coaching. member Manasi Mande has offered to share her recipes with our community. I know many of my readers are from Indian and it is challenging to find PCOS nutrtion advice that takes into consideration that many women living with PCOS do not eat a typical western diet.
