Obviously you should be eating a well balamced diet

Dont eat fish high in mercury such as swordfish and mackerel.  Dont eat non pasteurized cheeses like thebsoft mexican cheese or feta. It will say on the package. Umm raw meats. If you eat lunchmeat or hot dogs make sure you warm the meat first until steamy hot. Dont eat raw sprouts.

Yeah you can eat all normal foods just not high mercury fish and things that produce bacterias like the ones mentioned. You can google a list its not a lot you cant eat.
