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.
Nothing I normally ate or cooked would work anymore.
I sat at the kitchen table every night for two weeks and cried.
Thankfully, now I have some (actually good!) low carb meals on the plan!
This week (I’m 16 weeks pregnant now with my third baby), as I was sitting down at the table… instead of crying, I was meal planning.
And it made me think… what is different here?
I’m in the same situation (albeit 8 years later!) and I possibly have the same diagnosis as I did 8 years ago, but this time…
I feel empowered.
I feel prepared.
I feel healthy.
On my piece of paper I wrote:
> Low Carb Tacos
> Guacamole & Bacon Open Faced Burgers
> Chicken Salad on Lettuce Wraps
The only difference was now I had my tool box.
I already have a pantry with products and staples to make healthy low carb recipes.
I already know what to eat.
Maybe you are thinking about changing your diet… but you feel lost – “What would I even eat?!?!” You may be asking…
What if you had everything you needed to set yourself up for success right from the start?
