I love Greek yogurt with raw almonds and fruit mixed in. It is very filling. Or hummus and pretzels or cheese and healthy nut and seed crackers. I'm boring because I eat the same thing over and over.

I'm definitely not the best person to ask, but for snacks I love making a fruit and cheese plate. I've also been eating a lot of peanut butter crackers.

peanut butter crackers sound yummy - good protein which will help with morning sickness ... that's a good idea!

I sit at a desk all day too and need snacks to keep - need ideas, keep them coming!

I just started a diet a few weeks back and I eat small low cal stuff all day. Some of the stuff I eat....
Crackers (low sodium)
String cheese
cottage cheese
cucumbers/carrots/veggies like that
granola bars
fruits (grapes, plums and watermelon mostly)
I also drink lots of "detox" water. This kind of sucks because I already have been peeing A LOT, I have to stop drinking liquds by 6pm or I get up 5-6 times a night to pee. But the water helps keep my tummy full and settled during the day.
Yummy Food / To boost weight loss (and it's just yummy) - 2L water, 1 medium cucumber, 1 lemon, 10-12 mint leaves. steep overnight in fridge and drink every day. Also great for general detox--including clear skin!
Yummy Food / BOOST Your METABOLISM Naturally with this ZERO CALORIE Detox Drink: Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water 0 Calories.

Hope this helps a little

I have been eating a lot of salads with different vegetables, beans and pumpkin seeds or avocado. For snacking during the day I have been having carrots and broccoli with hummus or fruit. Peanut butter and crackers is a great idea, I will probably try that once morning sickness kicks in.

I just bought a bag of organic baby carrots an ate half of it lol, I like fruits, yogurt and granola, wholewheat crackers, just toast maybe with hummus or cream cheese. morning sickness is just now kicking in and I'm not sure what triggers it just yet, but I know anything cooked in oil is probably out of the pictures for a while.

I sit at a desk also, and I keep a bag of almonds in my drawer. Between those and water, it helps with my hunger after/before lunch.

I usually go for fruit, granola bars, yogurt, graham crackers. I have found over the course of my several pregnancies that continual, small snacks keep the queasiness away. If I let myself get to feeling hungry, that's when I start to feel not so great.
