In a carb-heavy culture, finding dinner ideas - even worse; creating a dinner menu - can be challenging. Add budgeting to the picture and you've got a frustrating problem that takes up too much energy, time and brain power. Let's not even talk about lunch options that are even more stringent because they need to be quick, easy, portable and sometimes on-the-go.
Many wonder what you can eat for lunch with gestational diabetes because most quick, easy, portable and on-the-go items are high carb, heavily processed foods that aren't appropriate for the diet. Then, when you find a few options that work, they quickly become boring and unappetizing because you eat them so often. That's the problem we fix for you with delicious and healthy diabetic meals.
There are some common options like healthy egg salad, low carb vegan tuna salad, chicken salad, leftovers from dinner, salads, sandwiches, veggies and dip, diabetic taco recipe (can be eaten at any temperature), etc., but we have recipes for some great make ahead lunches that will help you meal plan for the week. Since the carb allowance for lunch with gestational diabetes is normally 30 to 40 carbs, each recipe includes the portion size and carb count.
We've done the same with dinner recipes to give you all the information you need to meal plan and make life easier. Dinner carbs for gestational diabetes normally range from 30 to 45 carbs, but in most cases the 40 to 45 carb range is desired. Check out this amazingly easy diabetic salmon recipe.
