2nd Budget Weekly Meal Plan for Gestational Diabetes



Food is a huge part of the budget and with Gestational Diabetes can get really expensive, so this is my second budget weekly meal plan for Gestational Diabetes.  The first plan can be found here.   Having two weekly meal plans gives some variety and makes it less monotonous.  


If you followed my 1st-week Budget weekly meal plan, you may not need some of these groceries, or you may just already have them on hand.

This is my second week’s worth of gestational diabetes budget meals.  It is so easy to get caught up in all the fancy substitutes for gestational diabetes, but they certainly add up after a while.  I find with this weekly menu we often still have some leftovers.  The shopping list should include everything you need to buy for the recipes, but not weekly. Because every household is different, I did not put the essentials that are not apart of the meal plan on the list.  In my house, essentials are tea, coffee, and milk for tea and coffee.
