What to eat/not eat during pregnancy can already feel confusing and overwhelming. Add a gestational diabetes diagnosis to the mix and it can feel next to impossible. Lily Nicols is one of the top experts and researchers in this area and breaks it down and makes it doable. She is a breath of fresh air and you will not want to miss this informative and super digestible episode!

Drawing from the current scientific literature and the wisdom of traditional cultures, her work is known for being research-focused, thorough, and sensible.
