Vegetable breakfast quiche: whole wheat pie crust, add sautéed vegetables of choice, 8 eggs, a splash of milk and grated cheese and abke at 375 for ~ 35 minutes. I do it on Sunday and as a slice a day.
Snack: 1 small Gala apple with almonds or cashew butter
Lunch: Blue Apron food, this day I had spicy chicken with broccoli and it was very good. Use this link to get 3 meals FREE Blue Apron
Snack: Vegetables with almond hummus (called Bitchin sauce), you can get this at health food stores on the West Coast). Otherwise, I'll have a slice of toasted ezekeil bread with peanut butter.
Dinner: salmon with asparagus and rice. I bake my salmon in foil for about 30 minutes at 325 and add the asparagus the last 15 minutes of cooking
Treat: banana and chocolate milkshake. 1/2 can of coconut milk, 1/2 cup of water, ice, a handful of almonds covered in dark chocolate, 1 banana, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder orgain
To drink, I have water or green tea decaffeinated ice cream without sugar

Hi guys! Just to clarify my situation: initially I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but as it was a borderline case without other risk factors, I got a second opinion and since then I have been degraded to "insulin resistant with greater control". Now I keep a record of food and meet with a nutritionist, but I do not have to see a specialist or control my blood sugar between 4 and 5 times a day.
Before this, I thought I had been eating healthy but I was not getting enough protein and I was eating too many refined carbohydrates that were increasing my blood sugar level and causing it to fail and I was * extremely * tired and lazy (which I thought) was normal!). Since I changed my diet, I feel much better and will probably continue to eat like this after pregnancy.
