Dealing with Pregnancy Nausea

QUESTION:

Dear Livitician,
I have just found out I am about 5 weeks pregnant. I'm suffering from nausea (no big surprise there) and food aversion. Nothing seems desirable to me. I'm concerned about eating enough and giving my baby the right nutrition.

I work full time in retail so it's hard to find the time and energy to cook or to eat full meals. Add to that I can't seem to find room in my stomach for half a can of soup and I'm at a bit of a loss.
