High Calore, Low Carb Meals
My wife just found out she is pregnant with our 2nd(yay!).
Because diabetes runs in her family, both parents and 3 outta 4 grandparents, her Dr wants her to be on a low carb and high calorie diet. I think her calorie total is 2300-2400 I think.
Right now, she has eggs with guacamole for breakfast, almonds during the day, sometimes yogurt and a grilled chicken breast with salsa, cheese and guacamole for lunch.
Because I'm Italian and she is Asian we used to use a lot of rice and pastas with our meals which I am going to have to cut back on. I'll still make them, just not as much. So I'm trying to find some new meals that will be good for her.
