Been a while since I wrote anything. Let me give a quick update into what I've been doing. To sum it up, pretty much nothing. Things have been rather hectic lately. Moxtek Lagoon party, Rodeo, Batman, etc... I'm doing all of the house work because Steph just can't physically do it. Also, I've been helping Grandpa with restoring his dining set, so that's been sucking up a lot of time. But I'm ready to get back into it this week. Got to keep my survivors happy in that zombie apocalypse ;)
Anyway, so with Steph's pregnancy she's been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes again. On top of a diet change, she has to be on insulin again. Here's the dilemma we're facing with her meals.
We struggle at breakfast a lot. If you look at breakfast, everything is loaded with carbs. Every typical meal under the sun is carb central. Cereal, eating some fruit, bagels, toast, etc... Everything cheap and quick has carbs with the exception of eggs, bacon, or sausage. Steph doesn't like eating that every day, obviously. Do you two have any ideas? She really likes my scrambled eggs lol. which is good because I don't really like eggs a whole lot.
I'd also like some ideas on lunch and dinner. We have a few dishes that actually are low carb to begin with. I know each meal differs on the amount of carbs she can have. But I think max she can have in one meal is 40 grams of carbs.
They've actually changed her diet since last time. I think they removed some snacks and increased the amount of carbs she can have per meal and that's helped her more. Because last time it really frustrated her that she couldn't hardly eat anything, especially for breakfast. By lunch and dinner she had more options for eating low carb.
