I'm seven weeks pregnant with my second child and the first trimester nausea is kicking my ass. Clever cooks of metafilter, can you help me with some dinner ideas that will satisfy me, toddler, and husband?

I am nauseous 24/7. My sense of smell feels 100x greater than it was before, and everything smells terrible. When I'm not pregnant we eat a lot of flavorful, spicy dinners, but I'm pretty sure I will throw up again if I have to cook up onion/garlic/spice. (The only standby dinner we eat that is onion-free is baked salmon, which is good but I can't eat it every night.) Here's what I need:
- easy/short prep & cook time.
- Low-to-nonexistent spice/onion etc, but would be great if it were easy for my family to add something extra to their portions for extra flavor.
- nutritious, I need protein and green vegetables to not feel terrible.
- fatty/buttery/oily things have not been sitting well with me either, so nothing too heavy on those.
