Here is my book review of The Whole 9 Months.
“I’m thrilled that Dr. Lang has put her valuable knowledge into these pages. With this book in your hand, you are on your way to putting your health first and setting your baby up for lifelong wellness.”—JESSICA ALBA, co-founder of The Honest Company
Good for baby, good for you: Every mom-to-be knows how important it is to pick the right foods when you’re eating for two—but the information overload on prenatal nutrition can be stressful and time-consuming. The Whole Nine Months is your all-in-one pregnancy book with simple nutritional guidelines, up-to-date pregnancy research, and real mom-to-mom advice. Through reading The Whole Nine Months you’ll discover how easy it can be to make good food choices for your body while growing a healthy, happy baby.
An invaluable reference and cookbook during pregnancy, The Whole Nine Months contains:
- Nutritional Information: covering everything you need to know on essential baby-building nutrients, daily consumption needs, and where to find them in foods
- Over 100 Quick and Easy Recipes: including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options—with helpful hints on how to customize each recipe to suit your cravings
- Handy Tricks: helping you to handle nausea, cravings, and anything else that comes your way
As an OB-GYN, activist, and mother herself, Dr. Lang knows how hard it can be to absorb the available information on prenatal nutrition while tackling cravings and nausea.
“Eating for two” is the single most important thing that you’ll ever do—and The Whole Nine Months is the only pregnancy book you’ll need to get it right.
What I Thought:
I purchased this book after hearing Jennifer Lang on the Informed Pregnancy Podcast. I liked how she presented her knowledge on the show and it lays out eating by trimester in an easy to understand format. What I really like about this book is the suggestions she makes on what to eat when craving not so good foods.
The recipes are also easy to follow and I can easily adapt them for autoimmune paleo.
