Lunch Ideas?
21

Hey ladies... I pack my lunch to take to school with me each day and the last two days I've had to throw my lunch away because it grosses me out in some way so then I eat some saltines and a granola bar and end up hungry and that's not good. So I'm looking for ideas of what has sounded good to you all. Maybe I'll get some ideas of things I haven't thought of yet. I'm also having a hard time eating protein because most meat makes me gag. Any ideas?? Thanks everyone!

I've been eating a lot of PB&J and PB&banana (whole grain bread, and usually a rollover so it's only one piece of bread).

Ohh you just reminded me....English Muffins have been a staple for me...I will either do butter & jelly, peanut butter, whatever I feel!

You guys are making me all jealous with your cheese and butter and all that dairy :( I can't have any without my lactaid pills and it really sucks to have to take 2-4 pills just to have an ounce of cheese. Sigh, here's hoping it does the same thing it did last time where as soon as I have the baby I can have my dairy again :)

I'm definitely aware of the tuna-mercury risk. That's why I only eat one tuna sandwich a week for lunch. I did the same with my first pregnancy and didn't cause any issues.

I am trying to avoid canned soups and canned vegetables this pregnancy. I ate a lot of canned soup for lunches with my first. He was born with hypospadius of his penis and BPA is a suspect (out of many... hair spray also) that may lead to hypospadius in baby boys. So I'm really being mindful of BPA exposure and hair spray exposure this time around.

Just be careful with the soups if they're canned, they can have a lot of sodium in it and it can make bloating matters way worse.

Let's see. I pack my lunch everyday to take to school. I have more of a lunch bag so that I have plenty of room for snacks. I usually make a ham and cheese sandwich with no mayo, mustard, etc.... It seems plain but tastes so good. I also eat a yogurt everyday at 9:30 and a piece of fruit at 1:30 or 2:00 (depending on my plan that day). I also bring graham crackers, mints, a granola bar, cheese... that sort of thing as a standby in case the other snacks do not sound good. I can tell you that I am so tired of eating 100-300 calories every three hours and can not wait until I can go 4 or 5 hours between snacks and meals. I just can't do it yet because it makes me SOOO sick!
