Book Description

Feb. 19 2010
Congratulations--You're pregnant! In less than nine months you'll have a tiny baby bundle of joy to hold, love and care for. Until then, you'll be blessed with a growing belly, an altered lifestyle, and the very real possibilities of morning sickness, food cravings and food aversions. Your relationship with food and your body may change significantly, but luckily there are opportunities for it to change for the better!

Though Leah Douglas was thrilled to find out she was expecting, she soon found herself longing for the days of cooking and eating whatever struck her fancy. Now that cocktails, sushi, and nights on the town were out of the question, she decided to search for new ways of experiencing food, friends, and fun. With a few tweaks, she discovered guilt-free--and doctor approved--gourmet meals that made her feel sexy and confident in her changing body.

Discover the recipes that made Leah's pregnancy luxurious and nourishing. Each mouth-watering dish has been reviewed by women's health specialist Dr. Jan E Christilaw, MD, FRCSC, MHSc, and features ingredients that are rich in the vitamins and nutrients a growing baby needs. Filled with easy gourmet recipes and beautiful photography that celebrates the changing bodies of pregnant women, The Gourmet Pregnancy will help you or a woman you care about shed worry and stress, tackle cravings wisely, and indulge in nourishing self-care and delicious eating.

Celebrate your pregnant body, pamper your palate and start loving up your kitchen!

The Gourmet Pregnancy is a great gift idea for any mom to be. The way that the "what are you craving" index is laid out is particularly clever. All you need to do is browse through the various types of cravings to find the one you are having and you'll find a variety of options to satisfy it. A dinner that I made recently which was delicous was the Salmon, zucchini and sweet corn latkes with dill sour cream paired with French fusion onion soup. They were both quick, easy, and super tasty and the best thing was they were actually good for you. It feels good to have a cookbook that is geared for you as you go through such an amazing journey. I highly recommend it!

I'm a huge dessert fan and never more so than when I was pregnant. Our prenatal instructor decided I must be expecting a girl based on my sweet tooth while pregnant. But of course you don't have to be pregnant to enjoy some of these recipes. In the "snacks and sidekicks" section, there are terrific recipes for banana, yogurt and juice layered popsicles, maple walnut caramel corn, slightly naughty biscotti and grilled peaches with pink grapefruit and mint - wow! In desserts, a few of my favourites are: almond mocha nanaimo bars, chocolate truffle souffles and chocolate raspberry fudge. All are really fairly simple to make and taste superb...

I purchased this book, after a pregnant friend showed it to me, and I'm NOT pregnant! I love the beautiful photos, and the simplicity of the recipes. It's layout is great with sections for cravings! (wish I got this earlier when I had both my boys!) I love the Mild Curry Chicken Pizza on Naan and the Maple Walnut Caramel Corn...Delish! I especially love that I don't have to go to specialty grocers to find the ingredients! A great gift idea for soon to be mommies!
