I just try to keep a good mix of things but not really limit anything AND I make sure to eat lots of leafy green and foods high in fiber (beans and even English muffins). I don’t really have any good recipes but I’ve cut down on the amount of fried foods. Soup is a good choice if you’re making it from scratch (so many canned soups have WAY too much sodium).

I’m part of a weight loss circle and we try to post healthy recipes as we find them. One of the members just posted this one and it sounds super yummy!

COLD VEGGIE PIZZA 
8 refrigerated crescent rolls
8 oz. fat free cream cheese
1/2 c.light mayonnaise
1 tbsp. minced onion
3/4 tsp. dill weed
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2.4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
CHOPPED VEGGIES:
1 c. broccoli
1 c. cauliflower
1/2 c. green peppers
Cucumbers
Grated carrots
Pat crescent rolls into 12 inch pizza pan, fitting seams together. (You can double recipe and use a jelly roll pan.) Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool. Cream together cream cheese, mayonnaise, onion, dill weed and garlic. Spread over cooled crust. Top with finely chopped veggies and cheese. Refrigerate. Single recipe serves 8.

If you’re into that sort of thing I guess… I think with too much sauce I’d be gagging. I might just bake it too because that sounds DELIGHTFUL. 🙂

I haven’t had really bad morning sickness, but big meals make my stomach ache and snacking keeps the nausea at bay, so I’ve been trying the six mini-meals plan.  (It doesn’t always work – I usually end up eating a regular dinner.)  But I can tell you at work with me right now I have grapes, baby carrots, Greek yogurt, string cheese, hard boiled eggs, fruit cups, rice crackers, animal crackers, dried fruit, almonds, and Luna bars.  It’s quite the stockpile.  Smile  I usually love salads but anything leafy has been a major aversion for me so far.  I’m hoping that ends soon and I’ll put salads in the rotation, as well!

I think this is a great thread even for non-pregnant people because what is healthy for mom and baby is healthy in general!

I LOVE the book Mark Bittmans “How to cook everything vegetarian” even for non-vegetarians…. really!

@octobermom: YUMMMMM. The only thing turning me off about that recipe is the mayo and there isn’t even that much in it! I could substitute if I had the energy to do ANYTHING. 🙂

@firsttimemom: Try substituting with greek yogurt. It has the creaminess, less calories by far (2% or less) and stable for heat.

@lefeymw: I’ve heard wonders about greek yogurt, just never actually tried it. Thanks for the suggestion!
