Staff Review:
Prenatal Nutrition, Men in Kitchens, Trophia, and More

Hey everyone, Danielle here. I’m the managing editor for Selena River Press, and for my book review video today, I wanted to do something a little different and go over a few of our products in different categories that are great for different audiences.

The first one I want to talk about is Prenatal Nutrition and Birth Defects. I love this small booklet that is very easy to read and understand. As a mother myself, I know (and other mothers out there have felt this too) about the fear of not getting all of the nutrients our bodies need to make sure our babies are born healthy, and without any defects. For those practitioners out there, I’m sure you’ve met with expecting mothers who have these fears. This is a great resource for that. Every page has a wonderful chart that tells you exactly what nutrient deficiencies can have what consequences, and the birth defects that could come from them. It’s an incredibly helpful tool for anyone who may be an expecting mother. Also, in the back, we have a great section of additional resources for mothers and babies alike.

The next product I want to talk about is Men in Kitchens: A Good Day to Dine Hard. This is the second edition of our awesome cookbook designed for men, but of course anybody can enjoy it. What I love about this book are the delicious recipes with easy to follow instructions and ingredients. Often the recipes I want to try have huge lists of ingredients and instructions, which seems a little bit too overwhelming to me or to my husband who may be trying to cook. This is a great way to get awesome, healthy, nutritious meals that are easy to make. But the best part is at the end, in the “Kitchen Savvy” section. The book not only teaches you recipes, but you also learn about kitchen tools, what different terms mean, and tips and tricks that can help you become a pro in the kitchen. It’s great for any man out there who’s wanting to up his cooking game.

The next product I want to talk about is Trophia: Simple Steps to Everyday Self-Health. I love this one. It’s a compilation of some of the best blog posts from Paulo Widish, who writes on all things to do with holistic lifestyles, including nutrition, being a self-health advocate, and so many different topics. We’ve condensed her blog posts into this great—we call it a book, but really it’s like a magazine. It’s easy to grab that information quickly in articles as you go, and it’s a great read while you’re just hanging out and need something to do. But it’s also perfect for practitioner waiting rooms—something patients can pick up, flip through, and get a few important pieces of information while they’re waiting to see you.

The last thing I want to talk about is really exciting. This is The Complete Cooking Techniques for the GAPS Diet by Monica Corrado. The reason I love this one so much is, of course, because it’s an incredible resource. But since I started with Selene River Press about six years ago, we’ve been working on all of the individual versions of Monica’s book and publishing them as a series. And now we’ve been able to compile them together in one beautiful copy. Not only is it Monica’s full works, but we’ve also added other great resources and information that you won’t find in the individual books.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to look through some of the great products we have to offer for patients and practitioners alike. For these and other amazing resources, head over to Selene River Press.
