Eating Healthy

This may be a really silly question, but what are/were your favorite meals to eat while pregnant? I'm having a difficult time planning healthy lunches and dinners that have some variety (I can only eat so much grilled chicken).

This is my first pregnancy and I am only six weeks along. I'm worrying I am not eating as healthy as I should be. I'm constantly hungry and looking for some good recommendations.

We eat gluten free in our household. I have eggs and spinach with cheese just about every morning. Meatloaf with lots of veggies stuffed in it is so good! I love pineapple and mangos. I pretty much eat the same as before, just occasionally eat whatever I'm craving. Salmon with rice or quinoa is also a favorite of course in moderation.  
A multivitamin and your prenatals also help with whatever your lacking and/or what the baby needs. I wouldn't stress too much about it, your so early. When you do your sugar test around 25 weeks, you can always talk to your doctor about ideas. Pinterest is great for ideas for dinner too.
