Lindsay Taylor loves food, and promotes real-food nutrition for health and wellness. She believes strongly that eating healthy can be fun, easy, enjoyable, and rewarding for everyone. As a mom, certified culinary nutrition expert, and doula with a background in public health and academic research, Lindsay understands the impact of pregnancy and motherhood on women’s lives. She knows the importance of eating wholesome, nourishing food to optimize the well-being of both moms and their babies — hence this book. Lindsay delights in sharing what she knows about how to cope with the ups and downs of pregnancy and new-mom life, and the benefits of real-food choices. She creates easy-to-follow recipes for cooking up nutritious meals, and includes practical tips and tricks to enhance the prepping and cooking experience. For Lindsay, writing The Food Doula Cookbook has been a commitment — and a labour of love.
