Coconut

Coconut is rich in phosphorus; coconut milk and coconut water is rich in potassium. Coconut water is hydrating and may relieve constipation. Most coconut products (coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream, shredded coconut) are rich in protein and fat—therefore they help stabilize blood sugar if you’re a mama with gestational diabetes. However, coconut water is high in carbohydrates and therefore should be limited if you’re a mama with gestational diabetes (15-30 grams for breakfast, 30-45 grams for lunch and dinner, 15 grams for snacks).
