Pass That Orange Drink

Did you know you can request meal options instead of the orange drink for your Gestational Diabetes Screen?!

This test always made wonder…a high dose of glucose, corn & dyes to send your pancreas into overdrive?!

I declined the test for my last pregnancy & opted for a meal this time around. My midwives reminded me I would have to “log the time of the first bite/last bite & the entire meal needs to be consumed within 10 minutes. Can you do that?”

LOL watch me.

1 slice Ezekiel toast with grass fed butter

1 avocado

5 oz. lightly sautéed spinach

8 oz. unsweetened almond milk

1 mandarin

Worlds away from that heart-racing-empty-stomach orange drink feeling!
