The Day I Failed My Gestational Diabetes Test

8 years ago… I was in my second trimester of my first pregnancy…

Everything was going well…

until I was 28 weeks and went for my gestational diabetes screening test.

I thought “I’m the healthiest person I know!” I got this!

But when my results came back that I had failed…

I was crushed.

I was shocked.

I felt all alone.

I needed a plan, but I honestly didn’t have any support system set up for myself.

All the recipes I had were “healthy” but used grains, beans, fruits, starchy vegetables. read more

Healthy Keto Iced Mocha Frappe

It’s summer in the south and that means it’s HOT!

Hot weather makes me want a cool treat, but since most of them are LOADED with sugar and other unhealthy options, I try to get creative.

For example, what I used to get in the past from Starbucks has 36 to 50 Grams of sugar (depending on size). Yikes!

So here’s a simple homemade frozen mocha that I love! And you end up with only about 3 Grams of Sugar per serving! Not to mention this home option saves you money as well!

Ingredients

* 1 Packet of Keto Coffee read more
