what is a good healthy lunch to eat while pregnant? I know I can't eat lunchmeat, and tuna only twice a week. I have access to a microwave at work but I eat in my car. I also like quick prep in the morning. Any main dish and snack ideas are needed and also what I should add farther into my pregnancy (only 5 weeks at the moment.)

You can eat whatever you want while pregnant. Just make it healthy. WHy can't you eat lunchmeat by the way? Pot Pies are also good and fast, plus they are healthy. Salads are also good. You can eat anything really. But if you are not 100% sure, ask your doctor.

Why don't you do a thing of vegetables and fruits. Also try nuts and raisins. If you are inclined try trail mix. They are all healthy and will be quick to fix. Just a suggestion.

You can basically eat anything as long as it is healthy. Cut down on sugar, caffiene and fat. Dont eat nuts (baby could be allergic) and only eat eggs if they are cooked all the way through. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables for all the vitamins and minerals in them. Good luck with the pregnancy =:D

You are advised to avoid peanuts only if you, the father, or one of your previous children has had an allergic reaction to something. And in that case if you are going to avoid the whole nut thing, then you should as well avoid peanut butter or anything with peanuts in it. I almost forgot about this. :) Thanks.

Good nutrition and staying well hydrated may be the best advice at this moment. Eat a nourishing diet; 4 cups of milk, 2 or more helpings of green leafy vegetables, one or more eggs, multivitamin tablets and calcium and cod liver tablets are all a must. The food mentioned above will provide for the maintenance and tissue growth of the infant. To well hydrate drink plenty of water. Drink cold milk to keep your calcium level high. Avoid spicy food. Instead stimulate your taste buds with lots of salads and sprouts prunes in your daily diet. Relish your meals and let your baby absorb all the nutrional benefits. Good luck.
