Overview

Every woman wants to eat her best. But eating well can be challenging during the best of times. During pregnancy it is aggravated with curveballs such as nausea, cravings, or life. Before you ruin your healthful intentions, check out The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook, which offers a compromise by providing 100 recipes that meet every mother’s needs by adapting them to her moods.

Feeling nauseous? Turn Pine Nuts and Golden Raisins into a lemony-soup. Craving comfort foods? Modify Asian Cabbage Salad into a traditional but healthy treat. Ready to shed your baby pounds? Transform Fettucine with Mushrooms and Slow-Roasted Tomatoes into a beautiful salad. Feeling good today? Try some Broiled Salmon with Caramelized Fennel and Sweet Onion paired with Crisp Roasted Sweet Potatoes. And the Lemon Cookies and Devilicious Cupcakes are great for any mood.

Easily customizable recipes also mean that mom-to-be and her family can sit down and enjoy the same meal, no matter how she’s feeling. With helpful tips and options that minimize prep time, The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook is a must-have for any expectant, new or not-so-new mother, who needs a flexible solution for preparing delicious, healthful, meals!

As the founder of Mothers & Menus, Inc. and a busy mom of three, Karen Gurwitz knows how hard it can be to find time to take care of yourself. In The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook, she encourages you to tune in to your body’s needs and give yourself permission to honor your cravings. Her voice and the cookbook are a great accompaniment to your journey of motherhood, whether you are in the early stages, or have been on it for quite some time.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The advice 'don’t eat for two' does not mean that a pregnant woman should forgo taste or cooking pleasure in her quest to feed herself and her developing baby. Karen Gurwitz, herself a mother of three and the innovative President and Founder of Mothers & Menus, has written a terrific book filled with nutritional information, stories, and menus. The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook delivers a “meal come true” for the expectant mom."
—Judith Reichman, M.D., gynecologist, medical correspondent for the Today Show, and author of Slow Your Clock Down: A Woman’s Complete Guide to a Younger, Healthy You

"I am reading The Well Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook—it is my new preggers bible. Not only is it informative, but it's inspiring and serving as an anchor to keep me on a healthy track. Bless you, Karen, for writing that book!"
—Jillian Swartz, CEO/Editor-in-chief, THE FAMILY GROOVE
