Good question. Where do I start? Kale is a great food for women with PCOS, heck for all women, for so many reasons.
It’s High in Fiber.
Because it’s packing so much fiber, it can help to control blood sugar by slowing down how quickly any carbs in your meal breakdown and get absorbed by your body. Balancing blood sugar is one of the most important things women with PCOS can do.
Kale is a Nutrient Powerhouse.
Being full of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, eating kale can dampen inflammation. Chronic inflammation, which can lead to a number of other diseases, is common in women with PCOS. Getting a handle on inflammation can go a long way in keeping us healthier, longer. Plus our bodies need all those nutrients to rebuild, heal, and stay healthy.
It tastes good
This is probably the most important part: kale tastes good. It doesn’t matter how good something is for you if you don’t enjoy the taste. There’s a really good chance you won’t eat something you don’t like, and if you don’t eat it, it won’t benefit you.

This list is far from exhaustive. Kale is good for PCOS because kale is good for our health in general. Since it’s a whole, unprocessed, vegetable it has a nearly infinite number of benefits.
I hope this answer helped!
