I am getting so bored with my food! I need to be eating lots of protein, since it keeps the icky feeling away and I know it is good for the baby too. I am stuck in a rut, though. I eat eggs for a meal, some meat for another, but when I want to snack, I am at a loss. Help me come up with a list! Thanks!

Hummus is great. I suggest getting some and getting some pita bread and spreading on it. The good thing is that hummus can come flavored so you don't have to worry about a bland taste. I even dip carrots and other raw veggies in it as a snack.
