Publisher's Summary

ABC News reporter Genevieve Shaw Brown was hell-bent on raising her kids to like vegetables and eat more than chicken nuggets for dinner. She woke up at five am every morning to prepare perfectly portioned meals of turkey meatballs along with veggies, couscous, mashed cauliflower, and sliced fruit for her small children.

Feeling sluggish and tired most of the time, she realized that she had never considered eating what she made for her kids. After that, Brown put herself on the "Baby Diet". She felt better, lost those stubborn pounds, and prepared a short segment on her new diet for Good Morning America that went viral.

What happens when you treat yourself the way you instinctively treat your children? From sleep training to exercising to making time for friends, Brown shares her own stories, expert advice, and innovative hacks to address the common issues mothers face while teaching women how to care for themselves with the same love and attention they give their children and families every day. The Happiest Mommy You Know is the life-changing and incredibly positive approach to the challenges of modern parenting - and gives parents permission to finally treat themselves better.

Great Concept

I liked the concept and had some great takeaways that are very helpful. However, I did have some trouble relating to the author. A lot of her ideas relied on having reliable support from others and having the financial means to acheive them.
