The Vegetarian Mother?s Cookbook contains more than 300 delicious whole foods recipes to nourish mothers and their families throughout pregnancy and lactation. The dishes are packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids to help both mother and baby thrive. Many of the recipes in the book are vegan, and almost all of the recipes provide vegan options. For those with allergies, many wheat-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and egg-free dishes are also included. There are even teas and tonics to help ease common pregnancy discomforts.
In addition to recipes, The Vegetarian Mother?s Cookbook provides up-to-date nutritional information with recommended dietary intakes, complete guide to ingredients, suggested shopping list, and tips for saving time and minimizing work in the kitchen. This book is a comprehensive eating guide for vegetarian mothers, and for non-vegetarians who want to include more whole foods in their diets.
