‘Free foods’ or foods that won’t affect your blood glucose levels (BGLs)

Non-starchy vegetables such as celery, cabbage, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, asian greens, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, squash, green beans, snow peas, avocado.*
These vegetables won’t cause weight gain and are full of nutrients you and your baby need. ( *With the exception of avocado which is very high in fat.)

Protein foods such as beef, lamb, pork, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, nuts, seeds, tofu and cheese.
Including protein with your meals and some snacks can help you to feel fuller. They can often be a source of fat though, so take care not to go overboard and choose lean and low-fat versions wherever possible.

Condiments that are okay to cook with include: mustard, vinegars, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, chilli, lemon juice, lime juice, curry powder, all herbs and spices, soy sauce, fish sauce and oyster sauce. Select healthier condiment options that are lower in salt, added sugar and total fat.

Drinks such as water, soda water, plain mineral/sparkling mineral water and small amounts of tea, coffee, diet soft drinks and diet cordials.
