Cheese and crackers, nuts, yogurt and granola, veggies with dip, hummus and pita chips are all favorite snacks at our house! Oh and popcorn too!

Re: Help! I don't know what I like to eat!

If you like Guac Wholly Molly now puts out 100 cal packs. I think it ends up being like a quarter cup. I love Guac so if I make a full batch I eat the full batch. Although I ate all 3 100 cal packs in 2 days. Still less then if I made a whole batch.

If you liking salty- defiantly go for a flavored hummus. If pita isn't quite cutting the salt for you dip pretzels in it.

This may sound gross to you and its not exactly healthy, but it would be better then chips- I like to butter both sides of a tortilla and cook it in a frying pan until it starts getting light brown and crunchy.

For the pasta- you can make your girl's spaghetti and meatballs- then you can have a meatball sub- that way you don't have to make something extra for your self.

Re: Help! I don't know what I like to eat!

When I was preggie I made a ton of fresh guacamole. This can get expensive too! But if you have a Trader JOes near you they have a great price on a bag of avocados. Could you make chicken fajitas with sauteed veggies and fresh guac?
I also make a lot of stir fries. That's my go-to since I can't cook! And usually don't have a big appetite either. A huge bag of basmati rice is a good price at Costco so we use that, sautee some broccoli, baby corn, carrots, celery, onion, sprouts And I cook some beans on the side for protein

Those are such great ideas! Especially the meat ball sub one!

You will fall in love. We get a basket about every other week and we have looked at the store to see how much the stuff would cost and if we bought it at the store we would of spent over $50.00, but with bb it is $15.00. They have great extras too. We love the breads and tortillas, you do have to keep them in the fridge or freezer.

My kids get so excited on bb day it is better than Christmas.

Re: Help! I don't know what I like to eat!

Both of my pregnancies I craved (so therefore snacked on) chips and salsa constantly. lol

With all the morning sickness, I imagine you're snacking on saltines a lot. I also love popcorn to snack on. (A little too much!!) We're doing a lot of popsicles this summer with the heat.

I've been snacking on a lot of nuts and sunflower seeds lately too.
