Good afternoon friends! How is your week going so far? I woke up this morning with the realization that baby will be here in just about 1 month. I was having a hard time believing it until after two bites of my breakfast I had to take a break because I felt full.

But don’t worry, I finished it!

This morning I switched up my normal sausage and eggs breakfast and had a blueberry date smoothie with a homemade pumpkin donut. I should really do a full post with the donut recipe, but until then, here’s the skinny… mix all the ingredients below and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

1/2 cup coconut flour 
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup pumpkin pure (not pie mix)
3 TBSP maple syrup
1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. baking soda

A few hours later I munched on some cucumber slices, sprinkled with pink salt & pepper, and dipped in hummus. I’m always trying to look for ways to sneak in extra protein (to ward off pregnancy pre-eclampsia) so I sprinkled some hemp hearts on them too.

For lunch I had leftover Jambalaya (my white rice mixture is really ½ cauli rice and ½ white rice). Which totally filled me up until I got home.

When I got home from work I made another blueberry date smoothie. #pregnancycravingsaresoreal. I can’t get enough of these smoothies! Plus the dates are really great to help soften the cervix which will be a godsend during labor.

Blueberry Smoothie Low Carb

As I sipped on the smoothie I started to make dinner which was pretty simple… some apple sausages with green beans and sliced peaches.

Dessert was simple and quick too. I took some leftover chocolate pancakes I had, topped them with dairy free cool whip and sliced strawberries. Less than 15g carbs!

    Pleaaaaase do a post on how you make your blueberry smoothie! It looks soo good! And i’m assuming it’s dairy free and lower in sugar?

      Yes! It’s dairy free and lower carb… about 10-15g. I will definitely make a post soon, thanks for the post suggestion! I love knowing what you guys want to see 🙂
