Healthy, Low-Sugar Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

My Fresh Start

We've been all about healthy breakfasts with our new series, Fresh Starts. Here, Elka Karl shares hers: a strawberry smoothie with no added sugar.

Since I've been a type 1 diabetic for 20 years, maintaining a healthy pregnancy was a challenge (but one I was up to — I had super low a1c levels and got this cutie out of the deal, woot!). One way that I tried to deal with the insulin resistance that occurs in most type 1 diabetic pregnancies was by maintaining a very low glycemic diet.

Usually I would eat eggs in the morning, but sometimes I'd have a hankering for something a little sweeter. So, I'd often use this delicious low-carb smoothie recipe that I invented to appease my morning sweet tooth. I've marked the carb grams in parentheses for any of you diabetic ladies (or carb gram-counting ladies) out there who need a fresh start of their own, pregnant or not.
