Shulman (Mediterranean Light) and Davis, director of obstetrics and gynecology at Los Angeles's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, team up to offer a slew of recipes plus some basic tips on weight gain, bed rest, fighting nausea, key nutrients and other issues faced by virtually all pregnant women. The recipes include breakfast foods, snacks, salads, soups, sandwiches, main dishes and deserts, and Shulman provides inventive variations on even the most ordinary dishes. She includes a toaster-oven version of the grilled cheese sandwich and a deviled eggs recipe that's easy on the mayonnaise, plus more exotic treats like Grapefruit Avocado Salad, White Bean Puree, and Mediterranean Chicken Stew. Many of the recipes are easy to make and suitable for anyone, pregnant or not. For the pregnant woman, the meal plans—which include advice on schedules and portions sizes for the different trimesters—will be particularly useful. Shulman and Davis devise special programs for those with conditions such as lactose intolerance and gestational diabetes. They offer low- and high-carb programs, as well as special plans for vegetarians and nursing mothers. Fans of Shulman's other books are especially likely to find this comprehensive new volume appealing. (Aug)
