The Food Doula Cookbook
BY LINDSAY TAYLOR
The Food Doula Cookbook: A Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy and a Nourished New Mom eliminates the guesswork of what to eat during pregnancy, empowering moms-to-be to be nourished, energized, and confident — from preconception through the three trimesters to postpartum.
Plumleaf Press will consider all manuscripts, but we particularly welcome books geared to women and children. We are interested in all genres, including poetry, literary fiction and non‑fiction, and cookbooks.
I crossed the Rubicon when I turned 40 — I left my job as Publisher of a leading educational publishing house and started my own small company, Rubicon Publishing Inc. Today, award-winning Rubicon Publishing is one of the leading educational publishers in Canada, with both print and digital resources, and has thousands of titles sold in Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand, and Asia.
In 2015, I created the imprint Plumleaf Press, a passion project to create “books to linger over” — thoughtful, beautifully designed literary books for readers, young and old, that offer enchantment and inspiration and stir the imagination and reflection.
I came up with the name Plumleaf Press by combining my father’s surname, Lee (李), which means plum, and my mother’s surname, Ye (葉), which means leaf. In Chinese tradition, the plum, which blossoms even in the deepest winter, is a symbol of integrity, fortitude, tenacity, and blessing. A green leaf is a symbol of renewal and hope.
