Gestational Diabetes

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. Don't forget to visit Lisa's blog to link up and see all the great recipes and goodies!

I have a HUGE favor to ask you. I'm in my 7th month of pregnancy and I have been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. I'm looking for great tips and healthy ideas for helping me control my blood sugar with diet. I'm testing my blood 4 times a day and watching EVERYTHING I eat and keeping a food journal to turn in to the nutritionist.

So, can you help me? Any ideas or encouragement will be gladly accepted here.

I am looking forward to what you can help me with.

English Pea Salad

Welcome to Tempt my Tummy Tuesday. Be sure to check Lisa's site for all the recipe goodness and to link you blog up!

Today I'm posting an English Pea Salad. I've been craving this today! I guess you can blame the pregnancy on it. I may be making this tomorrow for lunch!

English Pea Salad
1 can of English/sweet peas, drained
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
2 -3 pieces of bacon ( I love to used the Oscar Meyer or Hormel real bacon pieces for this)
1 cup of cheddar cheese ( I like the cheese cubed but you can use shredded as well)
1/4 cup of chopped red onion ( you can use less if you like)
3-4 tsp Mayo ( again this is to taste, if you like it creamer... go for it. Fat free works great here)

Combine all your ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste and refridgerate!

How easy is that... come to think of it... I think I'll just add this to our dinner menu tonight!
