Before Baby guides you through a tried-and-true method to fill your freezer with nourishing, dependable meals for when your baby arrives and you no longer have the time or energy to cook. It contains delicious recipes from a registered dietitian-nutritionist, surefire advice on how to freeze properly, and prep timelines that really work.
All the recipes are naturally gluten- and dairy-free because those are the two foods to which breast-fed babies most commonly react. Before Baby is also sprinkled with pre- and post-birth nutrition advice to keep your family healthy, and I give modifications to make every recipe vegan.
Before Baby contains 15 main-dish recipes that can be prepared either on the stovetop or in the slow cooker, as well as recipes for various sides and snacks. Each recipe makes several quarts of food and will feed a family for two to three meals. I’ve also included three different prep timelines, so regardless of the time you have before baby arrives, you’ll be able to fill your freezer with great food.
So, who is this book perfect for?
Expectant families without a lot of support who want to eat well after their baby comes.
Families with more than one child. Kids don’t stop needing to be fed when a newborn comes home!
Families with specific dietary needs.
Friends or family members of expectant parents who want to help keep them fed.
Available for Kindle and Kindle Apps on any device! Print version available in August 2015.
