Real Food for Mother and Baby: The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby's First Foods

Bloomsbury Publishing USA
Free sample

Ten years ago, Nina Planck changed the way we think about what we eat with the groundbreaking Real Food. And when Nina became pregnant, she took the same hard look at the nutritional advice for pregnancy and newborns, finding a tangle of often contradictory guidelines that seemed at odds with her own common sense.

In Real Food for Mother and Baby, Nina explains why some commonly held ideas about pregnancy and infant nutrition are wrongheaded--and why real food is good for growing minds and bodies. While her general concept isn't surprising, some of the details might be. For expecting mothers and babies up to two years old, the body's overwhelming requirements are fat and protein, not vegetables and low-fat dairy--which is why, for example, cereals aren't right for babies, but meat and egg yolks are excellent.

Nina shares tips and advice like a trusted friend, and in this updated edition, her afterword presents the latest findings and some newly won wisdom from watching her three children grow on real food.

What you need to know to have the best birth experience for you.

Drawing upon her thirty-plus years of experience, Ina May Gaskin, the nation’s leading midwife, shares the benefits and joys of natural childbirth by showing women how to trust in the ancient wisdom of their bodies for a healthy and fulfilling birthing experience. Based on the female-centered Midwifery Model of Care, Ina May’s Guide to Natural Childbirth gives expectant mothers comprehensive information on everything from the all-important mind-body connection to how to give birth without technological intervention.

Filled with inspiring birth stories and practical advice, this invaluable resource includes:• Reducing the pain of labor without drugs--and the miraculous roles touch and massage play

• What really happens during labor
• Orgasmic birth--making birth pleasurable
• Episiotomy--is it really necessary?
• Common methods of inducing labor--and which to avoid at all costs
• Tips for maximizing your chances of an unmedicated labor and birth
• How to avoid postpartum bleeding--and depression
• The risks of anesthesia and cesareans--what your doctor
doesn’t necessarily tell you
• The best ways to work with doctors and/or birth care providers
• How to create a safe, comfortable environment for
birth in any setting, including a hospital
• And much more

Ina May’s Guide to Natural Childbirth takes the fear out of childbirth by restoring women’s faith in their own natural power to give birth with more ease, less pain, and less medical intervention.
When Nina Planck toured to promote her two earlier books, Real Food and Real Food for Mother and Baby, the question she heard most was, "When are you going to write a cookbook?†? At long last, The Real Food Cookbook is here.

In a dietary landscape overfull with low-carb bread and dubious advice about triglycerides, Planck is revolutionary in her complete embrace of a more old-fashioned and diverse way of eating. Aptly described by the Washington Post as "a cross between Alice Waters and Martha Stewart,†? Planck showcases traditional, real foods-produce, dairy, meat, fish, eggs-through tempting and straightforward recipes for the beginner or regular home cook.

The Real Food Cookbook takes 150 classic dishes, from starters, soups, and salads to the center of the plate, to sweets and the cheese course, and makes them anew, transforming them with Nina's signature approach: using fresh herbs, good butter, seasonal fruits and vegetables, grass-fed and pastured meats, and whole grains. With essays and tips throughout, sharing Nina's own real-food lifestyle, The Real Food Cookbook will provide inspiration for any omnivorous cook or eater. Find recipes for every occasion: a cheese plate with drinks, a family Seder, Easter egg salads, a summer barbeque.Learn how Nina stocks her pantry and where she buys real food.Whether you're preparing the meals or simply eating them, everyone will enjoy the stories, feast on one hundred gorgeous full-color photographs, and beg the family cook to make the meals Nina loves.

 全球真食物運動的先鋒之作

十周年經典重量增訂版,經典地位歷久不衰

作者妮娜.普朗克(Nina Planck) 被《衛報》譽為「農夫市集女神」,《浮華世界》稱她為「偉大的食物行動主義者」


關於食物,你可能不知道的事:

動物性脂肪與心血管疾病無關,甚至含有許多對人體有益的營養素

海鮮、蛋黃等所謂高膽固醇的食物,吃了不會增加血膽固醇,因為人體內自有調控機制

草飼牛和榖飼牛營養大不同,草飼牛會含有牧草的優質營養,穀物只會造成牛隻胃潰瘍和易發炎,施打的抗生素可能殘留在肉品和牛奶裡

生乳「自備」了可消化脂肪的解脂酶、消化乳糖的乳糖酶、吸收鈣質的磷酸酶,但都被市售規定的滅菌法給破壞了……


許多人類吃了千年的食物,在工業化生產下變得普及而便宜的同時,營養大幅下降,嚴重變質。一九五○至七○年代,營養學與醫學界更出現了許多只見到冰山一角的飲食理論,指控許多食物──例如動物性脂肪──「有害健康」,造成愈注重健康的人愈採極端飲食的現象,蔚為主流達數十年……

半世紀下來,這場簡直可視為全球數億人的集體飲食實驗,結果卻是文明病有增無減。換言之,人們犧牲所有美味,只換來更差的身體。我們甚至沒有工業化時代前,毫不忌口的祖父母輩來得健康,這中間到底出了什麼差錯?

美國真食物運動先鋒普朗克,從自身豐富的農場經驗和知識出發,蒐羅大量科學的研究佐證,以活潑又個人化的口吻,解釋牛肉和奶油等古老食物如何在營養學界揹上黑鍋,而玉米糖漿和大豆油等工業製食品又是如何打造出三大流行疾病:肥胖症、糖尿病、心臟病;告訴你同樣是鮭魚,工業養殖和野生的營養價值差在哪裡;草飼牛的乳脂風味何來……全書旁徵博引,比較傳統飲食和工業飲食的差異,對環境與健康造成的影響,更洋溢對傳統飲食法的由衷讚歎,對天賜美食的滿腹熱情,讀了令人食指大動,胃口大開。


「願你獲得遠離妖魔化營養主義的自由,遠離卡路里、公克、毫克等數字,

隨心所欲地吃符合你文化、體格、味蕾的食物。」

──妮娜.普朗克

*本書為《真食物的奧秘》十周年重裝增訂版,內容增加30%,收錄十年間科學研究新證。
