Meal ideas for a nausea sufferer?

(I refuse to call all day, constant nausea "morning sickness" - it's a bloody insult!)

Really struggling to think of meals I fancy. Once the food is in front of me I can actually stomach most things, it's just the thought of food makes me queasy. I need meals that will work for DH and our toddler DS as well as myself as we don't really have time to be making separate meals.

Any easy to cook meal ideas that are compatible with feeling queasy, would be much appreciated. I'm mainly concerned with dinner as breakfast and lunch are usually toast for me at the moment.

Nothing that smells. When I'm nauseous I like plain carbs. But really it's down to smell and texture. One day somethings will be okay, the next they're wrong. Apples are good.

Plain baked potato was one of my staples. Also how about plain pasta, it sounds dull but it's not that bad.

Mash potatoes. If you are feeling adventurous have it with cheese! You can provide sausages for others.

Alternatively toast, try all types. Perhaps with beans?

This was what for me thorough the first 14 weeks.

Cheese pizza. I lived on it during first trimester.

Fish finger sandwiches was a staple for me during the first trimester. If I felt really fancy, I added some mashed avocado. Lots of salt and butter.

I had and still have (almost 17 weeks!) a hard time with cooking smells, it's like the heat makes me feel sick! The plainer the food the better for me at the moment which makes me very sad as I'm missing out on loads of my favs but really depends on the day I'm having!

I second the jacket potato and pasta suggestions. I've cooked lasagne and roast dinners but not eaten them completely. Missing my fun cooking as is my husband! A lot of our dinners are bung it in the oven type things at the moment!

mash potato / jacket potato
toast
pasta - plain with veg and seasoned with salt and pepper
cheese toastie (so glad i could still stomach this as it ones of my faves)

avoid anything spicy!

Sorry its not very exciting food, but I had HG and these are the only things that were bearable. Even if I did throw up after it didnt cause heartburn/acid reflux. I found if i ate spicy foods, or anything with too much flavour, when I was sick it would feel awful sad
