What to Expect: Eating Well When You're Expecting, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
“Once again, What to Expect Delivers! Heidi’s go-to guide takes the guesswork out of feeding yourself and your baby, serving up a healthy and realistic plan to fit every lifestyle and eating style. It’s eating for two made easy, fun… and delicious.”––Joy Bauer, MS, RD, CDN, best-selling author, host of NBC’S Health and Happiness, and nutrition expert for the Today show
This brand new edition of America’s pregnancy food bible covers it all through those nine months of baby-making and beyond: the latest facts on superfoods, food trends, food safety. Foods to chow down on, foods (and drinks) to limit, and those to cut out altogether. Realistic, body-positive advice and savvy strategies on how to eat well when you’re too green to come face-to-fork with broccoli. Or too bloated to eat at all. Or on the run. Or on the job. Whether you’re a red-meat eater or a vegan, a carb craver or a gluten-free girl, a fast-foodie or a slow cooker. Whether you’re hungry for nutritional facts (which vitamins and minerals the pregnant body needs and where to find them), or just plain hungry. Plus, how to put it all together, easily and tastily, with dozens of practical tips and 170 recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious, as easy to love as they are to make.
Answers to all questions:
- Do I have to skip my morning latte––or afternoon energy drink?
- I’m too sick to look at a salad, never mind eat one––do I have to?
- How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant?
- Help! I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. What can I do?
