For me, I’ve found that the more variety I have in my diet, the better I feel (and the easier it is to eat healthy). On an average day, I bring:

  •  carrots, cucumber and snap peas

  • two types of fruit
  • rice crackers and cheese
  • TONS of water
  • green tea for metabolism/increased CM

Also, I keep almonds in my desk, and agree with PP – hard boiled eggs are a great source of quick protein.

Rather than eating an actual lunch, I’ve been trying to keep things in the office that I can graze on throughout the day.  Since getting pregnant, I feel awful after eating a big meal no matter what it is.  So I try to have plain greek yogurt (with walnuts, honey, or granola to mix in), apples, bananas, mixed nuts, hummus, cheese slices and crackers, etc. around so I can snack.

For breakfast, I eat eggs or yogurt, a piece of toast or a small muffin, and a cup of tea (I’m not cutting caffeine completely until I know I’m preggo). 

For morning snack, I have a piece of fruit. 

For lunch, I have either a homemade burrito or a sandwich, two pieces of fruit, either diet soda/Crystal light, and sometimes a brownie or a cookie.  Sometimes I go get baked potato wedges from the hospital across the street

For dinner, I have a grain serving (pasta or potatoes), a meat serving (chicken or beef), two vegetables (frozen veggies and a salad), and sometimes a little ice cream. 

I try to drink about 6 cups of water a day.  Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don’t.  I try not to stress about my food intake – stress makes you gain weight!

@parisian_bee: Yes good plan! 🙂 Another good idea is healthy crackers, I like some called ‘Dr Karg’ which come in different flavours and some of them are made from spelt and have seeds on. Also you can snack on a few pieces of dried fruit for an energy boost, which stores easier than fresh fruit.
