Natalie Portman is in the news over her decision to have herself and her children follow a Vegan diet. The Black Swan actress first became vegan during her pregnancy, something that a lot of people consider a no-no.
She isn’t the only celebrity to be criticized for following a plant-based diet. A few year ago, actress Emily Deschanel got some heat by continuing with her vegan diet while pregnant last year.
However, despite concerns, remaining vegan while pregnant can be done safely with the consultation of a doctor and nutritionist and maybe also by reading up on some recommended books on having a well-rounded vegan diet.
A few years ago, The Happy Herbivore put together a post that includes a list of recommended books for having a safe vegan diet and pregnancy and here are the few we love the most, with a few added books:
The Whole 9 Months: A Week-By-Week Pregnancy Nutrition Guide with Recipes for a Healthy Start by Jennifer Lang MD
Disease-Proof Your Child by Joel Fuhrman
Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven by Rory Freedman
Creating Healthy Children by Karen Ranzi
Feeding Baby Green by Alan Greene
Rawsome by Brigitte Mars
