This book is the ultimate nutrition guide and cookbook for expectant moms. While all pregnant women want to eat what’s best for their baby, not all feel that they have the time or energy to properly plan. In this book, the authors explain about the different stages of fetal development, body changes, and nutritional needs. They also include yummy recipes and meal ideas, even for vegans, vegetarians, and those on gluten-free diets.

The author has a PhD and is a registered dietician. For someone who wants to eat a healthy plant-based or vegan diet while pregnant, this book is a must. The author walks you through vegan nutrition and what foods to eat to get certain nutrients. The book also goes through the pregnancy trimesters to bring everything together. The included recipes in the later chapters take all the guessing out of what you should eat in a day.

I am recommending this book as it brings new perspective that is data driven to long held beliefs about pregnancy. Emily Oster researched the accepted rules of pregnancy, and discovered that many are wrong. She addresses the issues of caffeine, alcohol and separated out fact from fiction. This is a meaningful guide that also covers all aspects of pregnancy. Updated in 2019, it covers what you need to know from a modern perspective.

The author, in her research, discovered a wide gap between prenatal recommendations and what is required for optimal health during pregnancy as well as the baby’s development. In Real Food For Pregnancy, you will get clear answers on what to eat during pregnancy with research to back up every recommendation. This guide is comprehensive and is a well referenced resource. Real Food For Pregnancy, will give you the confidence you need when choosing the right diet for one’s pregnancy.
