Book Description

May 2 2005 WHAT TO EXPECT
Announcing Eating Well When You're Expecting, providing moms-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy—at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies.

A departure from its predecessor, What to Eat When You’re Expecting, which has 976,000 copies in print, Eating Well loses the whole-wheatier-than-thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: Is it true I shouldn’t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby’s bloodstream? Help!—I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae—can I indulge? Guess what: the answer is yes.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

For many pregnant women, eating healthy during pregnancy is a catch-22: "The reason you want to eat healthy is because you're pregnant—and the reason you're having a hard time eating healthy is also because you're pregnant," the authors explain. Morning sickness, heartburn, constipation... the list of food-related problems pregnant women can encounter goes on and on. Murkoff (What to Expect When You're Expecting) and coauthor Mazel address these difficulties in a practical manner, with numerous tried-and-true suggestions that will certainly afford some relief for the majority. The "Pregnancy Diet Daily Dozen" lists foods that provide all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients mother and child need, followed by recipes that facilitate consumption of the daily dozen. Sidebars examine "wisdom of the ages" (myths and old wives' tales that may or may not hold water), and a survey will help expectant mothers evaluate their eating habits and monitor their weight gain. The authors address concerns of pregnant women who are lactose intolerant or vegans, advise on what to order in a restaurant, list which foods are strictly off-limits and explain how to read food labels. The book continues through the postpartum period and breastfeeding, making it an excellent resource for new moms and moms-to-be. (June)

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommened July 1 2013
By AL
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a first-time Mom, I found this book extremely helpful. I had heard a lot of dos and do-nots from people early on, and this book answered every question I had about what is safe and what is not during pregnancy.

Plus, about 1/3 of the book is recipes! I love this practical application of the nutrition info presented. The recipes are also very good--I will continue to cook some of them long after baby is born.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Info Nov. 1 2010
By ki2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love the book, it is exactly what it says it is. My only con would be that it is lots to take in. At first it is a little bit of info over-load! If I had the choice to get it again, I would.

I was hoping to learn a bit more about healthy eating while pregnant. It was all pretty much common sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing recipes, packed with info on eating healthy --without being guilt-inducing June 27 2005
By Tara D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Wow -- what a great book!!! I'm newly pregnant and I really want to make sure I'm eating good food for my baby, especailly since I'm so nauseous all the time. I saw this book in the bookstore and bought it... and am I glad I did. It's packed with info about nutrition during pregnancy. It's funny and it's a really easy to read book -- plus it doesn't make you feel bad if you miss a few days of eating healthy or if you eat some unhealthy food every once in a while.

The first chapter tells you why it's important to eat nutritious food. The second chapter is so great because it goes through all the pregnancy symptoms and gives advice on exactly what to do for them in terms of food. Too nauseaous to eat (my problem) -- here are some tips. What to do about the food cravings (especially when you're craving something totally unhealthy). But the best thing is that it doesn't make you feel guilty if you do crave ice cream or cake or whatever. It recognizes that sometimes the only thing I can eat is potato chips, and it doesn't make me feel like I'm hurting my baby! But it still gives you the ideal of what you should eat (there's a really funny section later on called "ideal...get real" that totally gets this point across. Plus it makes you realize you probably are eating healthy for the most aprt anyway). I love that.

The next chapter goes through weight gain and the pregnancy diet telling you what you should be eating each day. The best thing is that the book has tons of lists of different foods -- and the serving amounts -- so figuring out how much to eat is no big deal. Then there's a great chapter on being an expectant gourmet. It goes through all the different types of food that you can eat while you're pregnant. I learned so much from that chapter. Who knew there were so many different types of lettuces!

There's also stuff on what foods to avoid when you're pregnant, and how to keep your food safe. Also sections on eating while you're working with great tips on eating when you're sick, when you're traveling, and what you can eat when you're in a restuarant.

Then the best part is the recipes -- it's half the book! Totally yummy. I already made the ginger and carrot muffins (they say ginger is good for morning sickness) and the Chicken Burgers with Mango relish. The recipes are all healthy -- but so good and they totally don't taste like health food stuff-- even my husband (mr. very picky eater) thought the muffins were great. And what's great is that I was able to eat them too even with my nausea! There are so many good looking recipes, I don't know which ones to try first (I think I'm going to try the Pork Medallions with arugula and Tomatoes next).

Totally get this book if you're pregnant and want to eat healthy and eat good food. I highly recommend it and am telling all my friends to get it too! Even the non pregnant ones!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good basic health tips, but not for vegetarians or pescetarians March 21 2010
By L. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently learned I was pregnant, and wanted to make sure I was eating right for the baby so bought a few books to do some research. I'm not sure this one will get much use - I may donate it to a local library, in case someone else finds it helpful.

In my opinion, the original "What to Expect When You're Expecting" is preferable to this book, as this doesn't give a lot of new info if you know have a basic knowledge of how to eat healthy anyway. The one big exception is the recipes that are included here, and the detailed breakdown of what different food options are available to meet each specific nutritional recommendation/requirement for pregnancy. Otherwise it's mainly just basic nutritional advice.

The second issue I had with the book is that there is very little information available for vegetarians, or even for those who only eat fish/shellfish. It would have been nice if there had been more vegetarian dishes, or even vegetarian options listed for the meat recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic nutrition guide w/ GREAT recipes! July 12 2006
By leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I took this book out of the library, but decided to buy it because I wanted to own the recipes. There is a great variety of recipes for all meals of the day and snacks. Most of the recipes are lower fat and sugar and higher fiber and protein versions of your favs. They don't elimate the bad things, but they do limit it and work in more whole grains and veggies then I normally do in my cooking.

As for the other reviewers comment about the grapes on page 82 - I can see how she got confused, but they actually say: "...;a slice of whole wheat bread, an ounce of cheddar cheese, and a half cup of grapes equals 200 calories." They are talking about how to get the most variety of vitamins in your snacks.

Many who buy this book may find the info rather simplistic, which it is. Eat a variety of highly nutritious foods. But, buy it for the recipes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Friend Suggested This book to me June 2 2011
By Charlotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A friend who was also pregnant at the time suggested this book to me. I bought the whole set. I HATE reading this book. Alot of jargon and messy layout. As I read this book it made me feel like they didn't edit it before publishing. For anyone who is pregnant I would recommend another book called " Mayo Clinic Guide to A Healthy Pregnancy"

3.0 out of 5 stars Warning for Kindle readers! Oct. 9 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my kindle and was not happy to find there is no table of contents available for the kindle edition! Unless you have a photographic memory I suggest you purchase the paper copy of this book if being able to reference previous chapters is important to you. I found it incredibly disappointing and frustrating not to be able to refer back to important information. Now I have to go to Barnes and Nobles and pick up a paper copy so this book will actually be useful to me. This experience has turned me off to buying reference books on my kindle. I will stick with only purchasing novels on my kindle from now on... once bitten, twice shy.
