Maintaining Healthy Eating Habits

Hi everyone! Here's an update on us. Ayla is now 11 weeks old and doing wonderfully. She's sleeping so well at night already, sometimes up to 10 hours! I feel great too. I've managed to continue incorporating diabetic eating habits into my daily life, even though I'm no longer diabetic. The fact is I could become a diabetic at any time because of my history of gestational diabetes, so I'm taking preventative measures now. I'm eating small portions in regular intervals, having protein with every meal, limiting the amount of carbohydrates I eat, and choosing complex carbohydrates instead of refined sugars, white bread, etc. I haven't gotten into any heavy exercise yet because of the c-section, but I've been going for walks every day with the stroller, sometimes multiple walks in a day. I give a lot of credit to this diabetic lifestyle for dropping my pregnancy weight so quickly.

2 weeks postpartum
That's me 2 weeks after giving birth, 125 lbs and 5'9". I've lost a few more pounds since then, so I'm about 122 lbs right now. Of course not everything is exactly as it was before I was pregnant, I'm still working on toning up, but at least I'm back into my size 2 skinny jeans. I say that's not too shabby for a mother of three!
Seriously, you don't need to be diabetic to benefit from the habits I've mentioned here. Everyone can be healthier by doing this.

Here are some of the things I've been eating.


Voluminous oatmeal. This is a tip I learned from Chocolate-Covered Katie. Use 1 to 1 1/2 times the amount of water you normally would when cooking your oatmeal, then cook it and let it sit overnight. They become double the size of regular oats so it seems like you're eating a lot more oatmeal than you actually are. How great is that??

Coconut flour chocolate cake in a mug, for those late-night cravings. I like to top it with a small scoop of chocolate frozen yogurt. Yummy!
I also love these "All for One" Chocolate Chip Cookies. I usually just make mine as one jumbo cookie in the microwave, and I top it with a little vanilla frozen yogurt.
Coconut flour is so awesome, I'm addicted. I've been enjoying these coconut banana pancakes too topped with Greek yogurt.


Also, because you know how I love pancakes, I used Bob's Red Mill Low-Carb Baking Mix to make pancakes this morning. Recipe here.



I'm loving that mix so much and so do my kids. I made muffins with it the other day and Cole couldn't stop raving about them.

Check out my Low-Carb Pinterest board for more great ideas (link is on the right-hand column).

  8. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house. Dr. Itua can also cure the following diseases ... Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Inflammatory Liver, Diabetis, Fribroid,Parkinson's disease,Inflammatory bowel disease ,Fibromyalgia, recover your ex. You can contact him by email or whatsapp, @ .. drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com, phone number .. + 2348149277967 .. He is a good doctor, talk to him kindly. I'm sure he will also listen to you.
