Disappointing - few recipes and uninspiring
on 6 July 2012
I struggled to find any pregnancy recipe books on Amazon that had consistently good reviews but plumped for this one as the potentially best of a bad lot. Unfortunately it is pretty disappointing. It has a couple of really nice looking breakfast recipes and one or two nice meals but overall the recipes are pretty bland and boring - hardly inspiring. And there are far too few recipes. The first half of the book is given over to healthy eating during pregnancy, weight gain, exercise etc so I guess if you know nothing about healthy eating then this would be useful, but most of this information is covered in more detail in other books that you're more likely to use as reference material. I really just wanted this for some recipe ideas but Yummy Mummy Cookbook seems to have opted for the bland end of healthy eating (cous cous with veg, rice with a tomato sauce etc) bar a small handful (balsamic chicken, Italian cod)so I think my standard cook books will serve me better.
