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)

I almost bought it's predicessor, but the description of this version's reduction in the "wheatier than thou" approach sold me. I have a couple of the other "What to do books" and was aware that I would skim past a lot of the dietary advice as not being realistic to my lifestyle - but this book is. Its full of down-to-the-roots, real life knowledge on what nutrition really is, why you are supposed to eat what they say you should, and real-world decision making for trying to be healthy one day at a time.
It goes into fantastic detail on the Daily Dozen concept, and the recipies that I have tried so far are easy and tasty, with lots of room for personalization and variety. But it's not just a diet-or a recipe book. It's a way to trully think about everything you eat and why you do or don't need it. Whether I lose the weight or not, whether we have another child or not, I've gained a lot of confidence and knowledge about my habits from this book and I am very pleased with it.
