Hi my name is Sara and it’s been 8 days since I last ate carbs or sugar.
Gestational diabetes. Yuck. I got this diagnosis after some testing last week. So, that means no more late night ice cream sandwiches and grilled cheeses for this momma!
Before I got pregnant, I was on a low carb diet plan through Profile by Sanford. With help from a diet coach, and support from my husband, I had a lot of success on this diet plan. I even learned to love a lot of the new foods and recipes that I had discovered through it. So, hearing that I had to cut back on a lot of the things I had reintroduced into my diet since becoming pregnant, while a bummer, wasn’t the worst news in the world. I knew deep down that I shouldn’t have strayed so far from my low carb lifestyle in the first place – but DANG these cravings!
Anyway, I’m back on track and finding new, healthy foods to satisfy my cravings now and keep my blood sugar in check. So, I thought I’d share some of my favorite low carb, low glycemic foods with you all:
Holy Yumballs! I found this stuff while searching for a snack at work one day. It’s non-GMO, grain-free, granola sweetened with coconut sugar. I haven’t tried them all yet, but my favorite so far is the Coconut Cashew. I don’t put it in milk or yogurt or anything (although that’d be yummy), I just eat it straight outta the bag! Good for breakfast or just for snacking on throughout the day.
