Using Arbonne Essentials to prevent GD

I am always juicing and making smoothies in the morning! I find it very relaxing to have a blended drink and sit by the pool and watch the sunrise. I recently have been looking for ways to get all the vitamins and protein first thing in the morning so that baby gets all that he needs. The Arbonne Vanilla Protein shake mix has been my go-to in the last few weeks because it does just that. The high quality vegan protein has really helped me feel full from breakfast til lunch. I really love it! Since so many of my friends ended up with Gestational Diabetes, I have really been watching my carb intake.


Check out some of the recipes below to see how to incorporate more protein into your daily meals.
