Introducing My Healthy Eating During Pregnancy Cookbook!

Healthy Eating During Pregnancy

Healthy Eating During Pregnancy

After a year of developing recipes, begging my chef friends to offer their favorite healthy (but decadent!) creations, testing, eating, and working with NYC nutritionist Brooke Alpert, who contributed prego-nutrition information for the front of the book and nutritional breakdowns of each recipe, I’m proud to introduce you to the next book you should buy. Really.

I’m not just saying that because I wrote the book. It’s because the recipes are really really tasty and nutritious, amazingly easy to prepare, and wholly satisfying–even for lovers of salt and sugar (like me).

Honestly, if your definition of eating well takes both health and flavor into account, you will love this book.

I’ll post a recipe or two in the near future, so stay tuned!

My Next Book: Healthy Eating for Pregnancy

preg cover

Man, do I wish I had the book I am currently writing when I was pregnant. Called Healthy Eating for Pregnancy and due to release in March 2011, it features 100 spectacular recipes that happen to be good for you and your growing babe, but, more importantly, are about as far as you can get from the kinds of bland, appetite-crushing options I have seen in other pregnancy health books.

On the menu are contributions from the nation’s top chefs, original recipes created by moi, and a guarantee that you’ll want to keep the book in your proverbial back pocket for family dinners down the road.

Stay tuned! I’ll post a few final recipes here. Also, please note this is NOT the final cover!
