“Even calling them vegetable oils makes no sense. They’re not vegetable oils, they’re industrial seed oils.”

- Lily Nichols

Lily Nichols’ career as a registered dietitian/nutritionist and certified diabetes educator unfolded rather organically and her work has included prenatal nutrition public policy, consulting, research, writing, and clinical practice. All of these experiences have brought her to where she is today.

If you’ve read either of her bestselling books—Real Food for Pregnancy or Real Food for Gestational Diabetes—you know she’s a fan of research citations, yes (RFFP has over 930), but also making said scientific findings applicable to real life and understandable even by the non-scientist.

In this interview, Jimmy talks with registered dietitian/nutritionist and certified diabetes educator Lily Nichols, author of REAL FOOD FOR PREGNANCY, about the importance of prenatal nutrition being centered around nourishment from quality food for both the mother and the baby. So many good nuggets in this interview whether you are thinking about getting pregnant, currently pregnant, or know someone in your life who wants to learn more about how to eat optimally for a healthy kid.
