I need tasty recipes for pregnant friend with gestational diabetes please

My friend is about 7 months pregnant and hasn't been eating the best. Her doctor has put her on a strict diet where she can't have sugar and has to watch her salt intake. Her doctor just told her on Thursday that she does have gestational diabetes. She's been following her diet for a few weeks now, but she's getting tired of eating the same thing over and over again. It'd be great if anyone could give me some recipes that would be both tasty and healthy for her. Thanks!

Please, don't do the fruit salad. The amount of fruit a diabetic can have at one time is very small, and this would be frustrating for her.

Anything she likes already, you can find diabetic ways to make it. For example, pizza. I take whole wheat lavosh bread (you find it at Trader Joe's). I/2 of the bread is a serving and I'm allowed 2 servings at dinner, so I fold it in half (it's huge, like 9" x 13") and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes to get it a little crispy. Then I put on the lowest-sugar pizza sauce I can find. You can also just use diced tomatoes with some italian seasoning. Top with mozarella and whatever you want. I like morningstar veggie breakfast sausage on these pizzas. Then bake until it looks ready.

For spaghetti, look for Barilla Plus pastas. They are high-protein and are really awesome for blood sugars. I can eat a big bowl and it doesn't budge my blood sugar. Top however you would.

I like to use brown rice to make fried rice. You add veggies, some ham or turkey bacon, and an egg at the end when you're stirring. We have it with some chicken and some other steamed vegetables. But adding all that to the rice makes you feel like you're eating a lot of rice when you're really stretching it out.

There's a bread that Orowheat is making called "double fiber bread" that has a great (low) carb count. I use that bread and I can actually have a sandwich. I like to make tuna salad, then toast it on 2 slices of bread topped with cheese in the toaster oven.

I'm sorry, I don't know anything about reducing salt intake so this might not be helpful.

Find a site that will explain why you should not use it:copy paste just a bit of the side effects:

1. Inhibition of Natural Hormones
The inhibition of natural hormones is probably the most common and probable side effect experienced from the use of anabolic steroids. In almost all cases, adding a hormone into your body will send a message to your endocrine system to stop producing it. This is because your body wants to remain in a very balanced state -- called "homeostasis," if I remember my high school biology class correctly. To maintain homeostasis, the body wants to avoid having too much of any particular hormone. To achieve this, the body sends a message to the testicles to slow down, or even stop producing testosterone when there is too much circulating. Unfortunately, this happens when any kind of hormone is added into the body, so even if an athlete is not using testosterone, but is using other anabolic steroids, the body will still send this signal 99% of the time. Of course different steroids cause varying degrees of inhibition ranging from total shut down of endogenous (natural) testosterone production, to very mild inhibition, where some natural hormones are still being produced and circulating. In almost all cases, this inhibition is over once the steroids aren?t active in the body anymore. In the following charts, we can see a mirror image of the level of steroid in the body (Nandrolone), compared with the level of natural testosterone being produced. In other words, as the level of steroid rises (chart 2), the level of testosterone falls (chart 1), and vice versa:

And from another site:
Side effects at higher dosages and prolonged use:
Men- Although anabolic steroids are derived from the male sex hormone,testosterone, men who take them may actually experience a"feminization" side effect along with a decrease in normal male sexualfunction. This is because one of the metabolic breakdown products oftestosterone is the female hormone, estrogen. Some possible sideeffects in men include:

Reduced sperm count
Development of breasts
Shrinking of the testicles
Difficulty or pain while urinating
