I have a few trusty stand-bys that *usually* help, but not always. They include: toast with peanut butter, graham crackers, shredded wheat cereal, lemon drops, and sometimes fruit. Basically, I just keep eating until the nausea improves.
I hope you are able to find some foods that work for you. Nausea sucks!!
My latest must-have anti-queasiness nibble is Triscuits and cheddar slices. Something about those that's filling and comforting at the same time. And any kind of lemonade (regular, lime, strawberry, raspberry...those Santa Cruz Organic ones aren't too sweet) cut with club soda is also very refreshing.
What I want to know is how y'all manage dinner when the thought of raw meat is nauseating, and the idea of standing up and chopping, stirring, cooking, etc. is sooo tiring?? What have been some of your supper standbys?

basically, too much starch and not enough protein, which concerns me, but i can only do what i can do at this point...
my guess is that the starches are working b/c they are easy to digest.
anything too sugary makes my stomach hurt. especially very sweet drinks.
Since you feel sick in the afternoon, eat more often before the usual time you feel sick. Also, make sure you're well-hydrated. Being dehydrated can make you feel sicker too. Drinking has been much harder than eating for me. (To the extent that I needed an IV at one point but I'm over the worse now).

Nothing sounds good to me either. I hate having to cook dinner every night - it sounds like I'll be able to eat it when I buy the groceries but when it is time to cook it, I don't want to. I have been making sure I get protein in the way of eggs usually first thing and I usually don't feel nauseous anymore but the aversions are pretty bad too.
