Skinny Bitch created a movement when it exposed the horrors of the food industry, while inspiring people across the world to stop eating “crap.” Now the “Bitches” are back—this time with a book geared to pregnant women. And just because their audience is in a “delicate condition” doesn’t mean they’ll deliver a gentle message. As they did with Skinny Bitch, Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin expose the truth about the food we eat—with its hormones, chemicals, and other funky stuff. But even though they are “Skinny,” they want women to chow down on the right foods and gain their fair share of weight through their pregnancies.

They also won’t mince words on these topics:
• the best foods for a healthy baby and mommy
• the dangers of common lotions, creams, and beauty products that women slather on their bodies (many contain carcinogens)
• why every mother should “suck it up” and breastfeed
• the lowdown on what really happens “post-push” (after birth)
• how the companies we trust don’t care about children (choosing baby food and other products carefully)

With the same sassy tone that made Skinny Bitch laugh-out-loud funny, Skinny Bitch: Bun in the Oven will give expectant moms the information they need to “use their head” and have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good Had this been the first book in the skinny series that I read I think that I would have given it a higher review rating. However, I read the regular skinny book when it first came out and this was more or less a good review of what I learned the first time around. I thought that it would have been more geared toward what to eat to specifically during pregnancy when your vegetarian. All in all still a great series of books with information that nobody should turn a blind eye to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye-Opening... I've been a vegetarian for 8 years now, and am planning a pregnancy next year. When I told a friend of mine that I was looking up information on a veggie pregnancy, she recommended this book, and I am SO glad I picked it up. It was exactly what I needed to make the transition to veganism. I don't understand why people are so offended by this book, or Rory and Kim's other books. 'Bun in the Oven' is about becoming a healthy mother and having a healthy baby. That baby growing and DEVELOPING inside you needs all the nutrients and vitamins it can get. And that's exactly what a vegan diet offers you. No growth-hormones, pesticides, antibiotics and crap (literally) that gets into meat and dairy. Perhaps those that are offended and don't like this book are still in denial about the meat and dairy industry? Or perhaps they didn't expect to read what REALLY happens in a slaughterhouse and they can't look at their "juicy" steaks the same way. If you want to wake up and change your lifestyle for your sake and the sake of your unborn child, please read this book. You will not be disappointed. For those who wish to continue to living in a bubble and ignoring what is happening to the world and to our children, well, walk on by this book.
