When you're pregnant, what you eat doesn't just impact you — it impacts your baby, too. We caught up with nutritionist and dietitian Anita Mirchandani , who's expecting her first child this year, to see what she's been craving. "It's important to include a variety of foods in order to maximize the nutrient intake from your diet," Anita told us. Here are five healthy and easy meals for morning, noon, and night — three of which don't even require an oven (we told you they were easy!).

"A recently popular dish that includes a healthy fat, potassium, and a whole grain — the toast will not only help you feel full, but also satisfy more than one craving," Anita told us.
Top it with sea salt, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, or a few squeezes of lemon juice to suit your tastes.

Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Salad
After grilling a palm-sized portion of chicken, take two portions of greens (which are a great source of vitamin K) of about the same size. Add color with veggies of your choice, like sliced peppers (for beta-carotene), chopped tomato (for lycopene), cucumber, carrots, or whatever else is fresh. Seasonal vegetables are a great way to take advantage of local produce and limit your carbon footprint.

Saltines With Nut Butter
If you're feeling nauseated or experiencing vomiting, especially in the first trimester, Anita suggests saltine crackers as a great way to replete your lost electrolytes. Topping them off with nut butter (peanut, almond, or cashew) is an excellent source of protein.

Homemade Yogurt Parfait
"Because calcium is an important nutrient during pregnancy, dairy consumption is encouraged," Anita told us. Adding six to eight ounces of Greek yogurt to a bowl of a quarter-cup of granola (which could also be homemade), a quarter-cup of berries, and one to two teaspoons of raw honey makes for a delicious meal or midday snack. Anita also suggests sprinkling some walnuts for an additional healthy fat.

Grilled Fish With Greens
Just last month, health officials added a new recommendation that pregnant women should consume at least eight to 12 ounces of low-mercury fish per week. Grilled fish (try tilapia or hake) with a side of greens is an excellent combination of folate and protein.
