Food & Gestational Diabetes Answered
I found out 2 days ago that I might be at risk for gestational diabetes (getting diabetes while pregnant. Usually goes away after baby is born). My doc suggested that I try a diabetic diet and I've looked up many great recipes and ideas but I was wondering if the Instructables community has any input. Do any of you have diabetes? How do you figure out what to eat?
So I'm turning to Instructables for healthy alternatives for everyday eats. I know the basics, everything in moderation, leafy greens, eat colors of the rainbow, exercise, low carb intake, water, water, water - all that jazz. Do you guys have any favorite healthy recipes or instructables you've tried and enjoyed? I need to be eating 2200 healthy calories to keep baby strong and give myself a ton of energy. I get tested again in 4 months to see if I have to be put on medication or even worse, have to do insulin. I'm going to do my best to prevent this.
Any suggestions, tips will be appreciated.
