Drinking for Two: Nutritious Mocktails for the Mom-To-Be
My daughter is pregnant and I was so excited to get Drinking For Two for her. She loves it. It is hard for her to find something good for her that she really likes and she immediately found at least 3 recipes she found while just scanning this book.
Selected as one of Food Network’s “Best Healthy Cookbooks of 2019” and as a “favorite must-read” by The Bump, Drinking for Two is the perfect gift for pregnant women, the health conscious new mom, or any woman just trying to stay healthy!
This book features 45+ delicious, plant-based mocktail recipes carefully crafted to deliver essential nutrients and antioxidants, and target common pregnancy symptoms, all leading to a healthy pregnancy.
With recipes for flat, bubbly, apres-dinner, and warm comfort drinks, registered dietitians Diana Licalzi and Kerry Criss carefully developed and tested each mocktail to include whole foods and all-natural sweeteners. Quick-to-prepare recipes (including many that are gluten free!) feature plant-based and everyday ingredients that are healthy for mom and baby, accompanied by notes to highlight the benefits of various ingredients with respect to common pregnancy symptoms like nausea and swelling. The book also features other valuable nutrition information to help women modify their diets and stay healthy throughout their pregnancy.
