    I cant manage a full meal, im only eating snacks and at the moment it all just seems to be junk.

    Any ideas for simple healthy snack foods that i can make/buy?
    preferably just buy cause im lazy :lol: but i can make some stuff if needed.

    I am really loving Ryvita's with Philly and cut up cherry tomatoes. if you dont like ryvitas there are lots of other kinds of crisp breads out there. i know what you mena i am so lazt at the moment i have been living on spahetti hoops on toast and beans on toast, its all i can be bothered to "cook" when i go home.

    I don't feel like food at all.
    Cornflakes and oranges seems to be the only thing I can gear myself up to eat.
    I just don't feel like anything.
    I am trying to eat fruit as that seems manageable and I bought some aubergines before because I thought they would be easy to chargrill and eat.

    I have never felt this crappy with my previous two pegnancies.

    :rofl: Eat healthy, I ate whatever I wanted :rofl: And still only gained 25 pounds or so :shrug:

    Can you make up some pasta dishes (in large quantities) ahead of time and store them in individual portion size containers? that way you can reheat as needed

    I am trying so hard to be good but crisps are talking to me so loudly :rofl:

    I have in my drawer at work loads of nuts and some dry biscuits incase I get nausea. I will try crackers. I have found cucumber slices to be a great healer for heartburn.

    I also have grapes and satsumas around to tempt me away from those gorgeous crisps xxx

    Carr's wheaten crackers are delicious if you havent tried them .. like a healthier version of Ritz, still got that nice crumble in your mouth taste though :cloud9:

    Or going on from Vickies idea of pasta you could make tuna/mayo pasta or chicken/sweetcorn pasta ... thats not too bad.
