Proud new mom Kim Kardashian is no doubt making sure that precious little North West is growing up to be a strong and healthy baby. And to do that, Kanye West's ladylove is also looking out for her own health.

In this exclusive preview clip from this Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the then pregnant 32-year-old E! star mulls a very special diet that supposedly has wide-ranging health benefits. That is, if you can, um, stomach its unique ingredient: placenta.

During a family dinner, Kim asks their chef, Sharone, "Have you ever cooked a placenta? They say you can eat them."

The chef says he hasn't yet dished up the special meal but admits, "My wife did that," before going on to discuss the diet's wide-ranging health benefits.

The topic then spurs a rather lively dinner debate, and needless to say there were a lot of very strong opinions at the table.

Of course, after welcoming Nori on June 15, Kim is happily settling into motherhood. On Aug. 17, she stepped out publicly for the first time with her precious little one to attend the funeral of Kanye's grandfather in Oklahoma City.

Kanye himself couldn't be prouder of their 2-month-old bundle of joy: He's set to debut Nori's first photo on Kris Jenner's daytime talk show on Friday. The episode itself already taped earlier this week, and eyewitnesses gushed about the wee one's adorable face.

"North is very beautiful," an observer told E! News. "She has big cheeks, a lighter complexion than Kanye, but closer to Kanye's color than Kim's. She has straight black hair and almond eyes just like Kim. She has a round face and is really cute."

Tune in Sunday at 9/8c for another all-new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, only on E!
