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
5 oz. lightly sautéed spinach
8 oz. unsweetened almond milk
Worlds away from that heart-racing-empty-stomach orange drink feeling!
