Low fat, low carb food ideas for a baby shower?

juliejulez | Jan 21, 201202:55 PM

I am throwing a baby shower for a friend of mine, and will be making most of the food myself. Normally I have a whole arsenal of recipes to use for something like this. However, the mom to be has gestational diabetes and said she cannot have too much of anything high in fat or carbs. So, I'm looking for some ideas that will fit her dietary restrictions. I was thinking some kind of grilled chicken skewer with veggies, but other than that I'm at a loss. We are getting cupcakes from a friend's shop, so I'm going to work with her to see about doing them sugar free or something, so desserts aren't really needed. The party is an hour away from my home so things that I can make ahead and/or are good at room temperature or cold would be helpful. It won't be a large party, 20 people tops.

So chowers, how about it? Any good ideas? :)
