Food cravings, staying nutritionally balanced while pregnant with Lindsay Taylor : Episode 245

by | Dec 20, 2023 | Pregnancy + Birthing, Well Woman Podcast | 0 comments

(Subscribe on iTunesSpotify, StitcherSoundCloud or TuneIn) There are countless opinions out there about how expecting mothers should eat and it can get very overwhelming. Tackling food cravings and making nutritional choices while pregnant doesn’t need to be stressful – it’s time to talk about how we can enjoy staying nutritionally balanced while pregnant. Joining me in this episode of the pregnancy series is Lindsay Taylor. Lindsay believes in the power of food to help us live our best life, and that no one is more deserving of feeling good than mothers and mothers-to-be. With a Master’s degree in Public Health, certification as a Postpartum and Infant Care Doula, and an Honours certification as a Culinary Nutrition Expert, Lindsay transforms an academic background in nutritional science into real-food, real-world, and practical solutions to help modern moms feel supported, nourished, and energised as they embrace the challenges and joys of new motherhood. Lindsay talks about her journey to becoming the food doula, how key nutrients change with pregnancy, ways to incorporate specific nutrients into your diet, reframing your perspective on food cravings, how to navigate tastes throughout pregnancy, and why context is needed to determine what’s best for each woman’s pregnancy experience.

Lindsay is a perinatal nutrition expert focused on making eating well and feeling good easier for the realities of pregnancy and postpartum life (when eating well can be hard!). Lindsay is the author of the award-winning cookbook, The Food Doula Cookbook, the founder of The Professional Prenatal Nutrition Program, a nutrition school faculty member, nutrition coach, and mom of two girls.
