So, I had that nasty glucose test a couple weeks ago. The one you have to take when your prego. It checks for gestational diabetes. I have never had a problem in my past pregnancies and I didn’t think much of the test. That is until I got the phone call. The dreaded phone call telling me my test came back one point over. ONE POINT! That meant I had to go back and take a three-hour glucose test. Not fun! I had to drink the nasty drink again, fast, and get blood drawn 4 times in three hours. Anyway, while waiting for the results of the three-hour test, I started preparing for the worst.
I found a bunch of recipes on Pinterest that were low carb and low sugar. I feel like I already tend to eat pretty healthy, most of the time. I also try to work out a few times a week. Despite that, some things are just genetic or can’t be avoided. I was determined to make this little set back a positive fun change. While searching for yummy recipes I came across this one. I decided to give it a try because it seemed easy and I love egg rolls! It is supposed to be like eating the inside of an egg roll. Because who needs that fried wrapper anyway? P.S. check out my cilantro sprouting in my little kitchen garden back there.
I made a few modifications to the recipe. I only added a 1/4 cup of the soy sauce that it called for. I think a half of a cup is too much for my taste. Also, I added sesame seeds to the top. I like the added crunch and festive look. My kids love steamed broccoli. They could eat it alone as a meal. I know, amazing! I had to through some steamed broccoli into this recipe as well. Mr. Whitelane was not the biggest fan of this egg roll bowl. I didn’t mind it for an easy low carb dinner. My little boy also really enjoyed it. You have to start somewhere. I have few other recipes I will be trying out. I will let you know if they are worth sharing. 🙂
