Book Review: Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide
Have a vegan friend who’s pregnant . . . or trying to be? Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide by Sayward Rebhal would be a perfect little gift. This little book is packed with tips and advice for a successful vegan pregnancy. Written in a friendly style, it’s like having a little cheering section when the questions about where you’ll get your protein or if you’ll raise your child vegan get to be too much. The book gives sources for important nutrients, and suggestions for dealing with common discomforts like morning sickness and heartburn—it even lists which antacids are vegan. While this is not a comprehensive manual by any means, it is the perfect companion to one of those big books, which don’t usually include much in the way of vegan alternatives. It’s a fun, uplifting book that you can read in one sitting.
