  • I don't really know about "healthy" but this is about the only thing I could keep down when I was pregnant with my 3rd - it's a strawberry jello salad. http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1843,159164-246203,00.html

  • Anon :36- If you don't have a helpful answer, then don't post. I am looking for other recipes myself, thank you very much. I was just curious as to what other women liked.

    missanc- sounds yummy!

  • I had to have melted cheese on just about everything!! (except sweets) I must have needed the calcium or something, but it was the only way I could eat most things. Although not a recipe per say, but I found that if you add cheese to some of your current fav's it totally changes them, for the better I found. (so, now I like melted cheese on steak - but don't eat it that way - talk about baadddd!! LOL)

  • You can also make the congealed salad with oranges and pinaple to give a variation. or really another fruit. Just swap the fruit and the same jello where the strawberries are in that recipe. The orange one i make I use 1 can crushed pineapple and one can mandarin oranges, both drained and use some of the juice from them in the jello.
