Loved reading Real Food for Pregnancy, but need more inspiration in the kitchen?
The Real Food for Pregnancy e-Cookbook is a perfect companion to the original book, providing an additional 30 nutrient-dense recipes.
They’re the same simple meals I personally make for my family and have used to nourish myself in preparation for pregnancy, throughout both of my pregnancies, and through postpartum recovery and breastfeeding.

Why you'll love the Real Food for Pregnancy e-Cookbook:
Nutritious & flavorful: Pregnancy is a key time to prioritize nutrient-dense foods. You’ll see many of the “foods to emphasize” from Ch 3 of Real Food for Pregnancy show up in these recipes. I show you how to make even the least-appealing of these foods taste good (ahem… liver… ahem).
Fast & easy: We’re all strapped on time, especially if you have kids or a busy career (or both). Oh hey, that’s me! That’s why I included a number of Instant Pot and slow cooker recipes. Save on prep time even more by doubling or tripling the recipes. While you’re at it, freeze some for postpartum recovery.
Nausea-friendly: I’ve specifically included some recipes that can be helpful during the nausea phase following the guidance outlined in Ch 7 of Real Food for Pregnancy. Twelve of the recipes are specifically nausea-friendly.
Gestational diabetes-friendly: I designed all of the recipes to be blood sugar-friendly, so if you have gestational diabetes, you can enjoy everything within this cookbook. Even the desserts feature low amounts of sweeteners and have an innate balance of macronutrients (no naked carbs!) to prevent blood sugar spikes and keep you satiated.
Gluten-free: Many of my readers prefer to eat gluten-free (or grain-free). All the recipes are naturally gluten-free, even the Spiced Banana-Nut Muffins!
