There's never been a better time to eat healthy. And that doesn't have to mean carrot sticks and crackers to satisfy your prenatal cravings, especially when you've got Erika Lenkert and Brooke Alpert's new book Healthy Eating During Pregnancy: 100 Recipes for a Nutritious, Delicious Nine Months. HealthyWomen's executive director, Elizabeth Battaglino Cahill, RN, who authored the foreword of this nutrition gem, says, "Erika Lenkert and Brooke Alpert have undertaken the daunting task of separating fact from fiction when it comes to eating for two and providing modern-day solutions to pregnancy cravings, best eating practices and healthy weight guidelines."
