Description

Announcing a brand-new edition of the pregnancy food bible. With over 1.4 million copies in print, What to Expect: Eating Well When You’re Expecting is the essential companion to What to Expect When You’re Expecting. This cover-to-cover update provides a fresh, fun, realistic, and body-positive approach to help moms-to-be navigate healthily and tastily through the nine months of pregnancy—at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, including all 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. How to eat well when you’re too green to come face-to-fork with broccoli, or too bloated to eat at all. How to eat well on a budget. On the run. Whether you’re vegan or a red-meat eater, a carb craver or a gluten-free girl, a confirmed fast-food junkie or slow-food foodie. Readers hungry for nutritional facts (which vitamins and minerals the pregnant body needs and where to find them)? They’ll get their fill of those, too. Plus, how to put it all together with dozens of practical tips and 175 recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious, as easy to love as they are easy to make.

At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions that every reader has: Do I have to skip my morning latte—or my afternoon energy drinks? I’m too sick to look at a salad, never mind eat one—do I have to? Help! I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant?

Written with Heidi Murkoff’s trademark warmth, empathy, reassurance, and humor, it is the must-have guide for a new generation of moms-to-be.
