I'm kind of a fussy eater, which I'm desperately trying to change - but one thing I can't change is my dislike of food that's too spicy (oh and curry!!). Anything shellfish wouldn't be a hit here either sorry.

Also at the moment (probably due to pregnancy) I have gestational diabetes so fairly low carbs and sugar would be good.

So after all that - can anyone help with some ideas?

Many thanks,
Welcome, Lou.

Had a long post, but my puter froze, & lost it.

There are prob some low carb products out there from tortillas to pasta.
I'm a fan of salads, fresh fruit & vegetables. Take a walk through the produce section in your local market for some inspiration.

I made a grilled chicken salad with fresh strawberries, avocado, mixed greens, feta & walnuts.

Re salads, so many ways to go - cobb, caesar (w/ chicken), nicoise w/ salmon or tuna, chopped, chef's.

Eggpant parm, rollatini, eggplant balls (instead of meat balls)

Ground Turkey meatballs

stuffed cabbage

tuna or salmon croquettes/cakes/patties

Chicken - paillard, francaise, milanaise, Spatchcocked, rollatin, etc.

Fish tacos w/ avocado, diced fresh tomatoes, & coleslaw.

Recently there were discussions/recipes for spaghetti squash, zuchinni, summer squash.

Take a look through the Vegetable, chicken, grilling catagories here.

Some sites I like:

Cooking Light, Eating Well, & Vegetarian Times.

I will suggest you about cereal products. it is good for health, not extra calories and sugar in it and easy to cook it. My best healthy cereal is octa, octa rings, corn flakes, rice crispy, choco flakes and cream filled snacks
