Finally there is a pregnancy and lactation cookbook designed to meet the specific needs of vegetarian women. The Vegetarian Mother’s Cookbook contains more than 300 delicious whole foods recipes designed to nourish mothers and their families throughout pregnancy and lactation. The easy-to-prepare dishes are packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids to help both mother and baby thrive. Entrées include many “quick fix” meals and freezable dishes—perfect for the busy parent. Many of the recipes in the book are vegan, and almost all of the recipes provide vegan options. For those with allergies, wheat-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and egg-free dishes are also included. There are even teas and tonics to help ease common pregnancy discomforts.
In addition to recipes, the book provides up-to-date nutritional information with recommended dietary intakes, complete guide to ingredients, suggested shopping list, and tips for saving time and minimizing work in the kitchen. This book is a comprehensive eating guide for vegetarians and non-vegetarians who want to include more whole foods in their diets. Although there is specific information about eating for pregnancy and lactation, the recipes in this book can be enjoyed at any time of your life.
