Are you familiar with that challenge of early pregnancy, where the last thing you want to think about is food… but then you end up thinking about it the most, as you try to keep up your nutrition “for the baby”?
Kate of Modern Alternative Mama has put together a wonderful book- not just a cookbook, as it’s full of helpful pregnancy tips & resources to answer the many questions which pop into your mind, too– which helps simplify this season.
Over the years, my nutrition has moved from the strict “pregnancy checklist diets” to embracing the freedom of eating nourishing foods in a balanced diet everyday.
In her book Healthy Pregnancy Super Foods, Kate highlights these “Super Foods” of a nourishing diet, that pregnant mamas (or anyone in the family!) can easily add to simple, appealing meals. They’re basic “comfort food” recipes that anyone would enjoy, so you don’t have to worry about trying to please picky palates during this season.
Her recipes are easy-to-prepare, include simple side dishes, and even no-prep snack/meal options for when you really can’t go much further than the couch.
My family has raved about her meals for awhile now, such as the Taco Salad (little do they know it has a secret “super food” combined in with the taco meat!), and the chocolate-coconut candies have been favorites of our family members, when we gave them as gifts! As a nursing mama, I love her quick tips for foods that increase milk supply, too.
And you don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy this book.
It’s a fabulous cookbook for learning how to make basic, nourishing & hearty meals. I’m especially excited to finally know how to make my own homemade frozen yogurt! (*Yum.*)
