Any moms with type 2 Diabetes? I am in my 10th week and in my everyday battle trying to bring sugars down. Any ideas, recipes to help me out. Please and thanks.

I don't have Diabetes but it runs in my family, so I cook for it often. Grab a Paleo cookbook--it focuses on meats, veggies, and fruits, with very little grains and carbs. You still have to watch the fruits, but they are not nearly as bad on sugar as things like bread and pasta.

A few simple things you can throw together.
Grill any meat--steak, chicken, whatever, in your favorite marinade. There are also tons of recipes for easy, healthy marinades on Cooks.com if you don't usually marinade. I feel marinades in different flavors help me not get tired of the bland taste of steaks and chicken so often. I wouldn't buy a marinade from the store though, those are too chemically and you wouldn't want that going into baby.

Roasted veggies. Snap peas, Brussels sprouts, and Cauliflower are all wonderful roasted. Just toss them with a little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and put them in the oven at about 400F until they start to brown a little (shake every few minutes so they don't stick).
Slice a head of cabbage and roast it the same way--just paint the olive oil onto the big slices and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic....and lemon juice if you like a little extra zing.

Steamed broccoli is a great side. I like to dip it into soy sauce, but watch your sodium.

Baked sweet potato fries are a great with steaks or pork. Baked beans are also good with pork.

There are also some really good bean salads out there if you look for them on Cooks or Recipes.com
