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

    Brilliant!! And not just for pregnant women...

    I started flipping through the book today and read from the back first. What can I say? It's an opportunity to breathe. Honest, straightforward, simple, easy, informational and moving. I'm not pregnant and I loved the whole section on how to fill a pantry so as to never go hungry. This is exactly what I need as a new cook and a new wife, not just a new mom. All the extra little tips that have nothing to do with the recipes - like having frozen waffles, canned beans, frozen veggies and fruit on hand and how to make quick and delicious snacks with these items - are priceless! It's really not so much a cookbook as it is a guide and structure for how to create a healthy and easy way-of-life. It's also like a private journal but not just of the author's life, but also of the lives of other women. As a new wife who will one day want to be pregnant and have a family, this book is a great guide to help me prepare my kitchen and my body! - GT

    Excellent

    Heard about this from a friend of in NYC who's been to one of the author's seminars. The one thing am am constantly watching out for is how I eat, I used to give in to the cravings and go all the way and than regret. What I like about this book that it give me the variations based on how I feel so it is incorporated in recipes. Its great.... I have been using this book for the past two week and notices that my cravings have gone down I also notice that my weight gain has slowed down as well. Surprisingly it is very well written and I appreciate the tips and the stories from other moms as well. This book is much more that a cook book it is a pregnancy guide on how to eat and I intend on using if after I give birth as well. This definitely makes it to the must give pregnancy gift list.

    Needed Pictures

    I returned the book after reading through the recipes and saw there were no pictures of the different recipes.... I am a visual person.
