Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

A Great Book for Mom and Baby

It is fact, and I am realizing it more and more, that our great grandmothers knew volumes more about food than the science-savvy food technologists of today. That is why I really like Nina Planck's new book, Real Food for Mother and Baby...The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two and Baby's First Foods. She gets back to that wisdom of the ancients in this very helpful work.

Nina's first book, Real Food, is a general treatise about traditional food to benefit anyone and everyone. Sometime after writing Real Food, she had a baby. During her pregnancy, Nina discovered that the bulk of information available now really misses the mark as far as diet is concerned, even perpetuating many myths that keep women and children eating a substandard diet. Of course, she was compelled to do something about that. And so Real Food for Mother and Baby came into being.

Nina's book is quite refreshing and just makes sense. It is so freeing to be told that it's alright, even the best practice, to eat the very things your body craves and requires to be nourished (real butter, good meat, etc.) during pregnancy and beyond. As she chronicles her own journey with baby Julian, she lays out what real food is and how it nourishes, builds, strengthens, satisfies, heals and energizes you and your little one.

Nina also provides sound counsel concerning fertility - what to eat that encourages conception and, once pregnant, the nutritional needs of the little one nurtured within the womb.

Good simple food will do it. Eat it and flourish - both you and your little ones! Read Nina's book. You will be all the better for it.
