Foods Post-Baby

Thanks to gestational diabetes (GD), I have been deprived of some of my most-loved foods for two and a half months now.  Yes, I can eat them, but in tiny portions that in no way satisfy my craving for them.  I had this problem while pregnant with Little Miss, as well, but only for about 2 months since I started the diet later in pregnancy than I did this time around.  When I was going through mini withdrawals of the foods I really wanted during those last few weeks, I made a mental list of what I wanted as soon as Little Miss was born.  On the list (I only remember a couple of things) was a green tea frappuccino from Starbucks (no melon, added peppermint) and a burger, fries, and a shake from our local 50s-style drive-up burger joint (conveniently one block from the hospital).

This time I decided to plan ahead, so my meals and snacks for the month after Miss Bennett is born are already planned.  Here’s what’s on my ever-growing list so far:

  • Lucky Charms
  • Picture of french toastBlended chocolate coffee drink
  • Curry with rice
  • Mashed potatoes with gravy and oatmeal patties
  • Reese’s PB Cup Blizzard from DQ
