So, here’s the situation. FH is really picky. He loves pepperoni pizza (anything basic italian really) and his back up option is breakfast foods (eggs and bacon and breads) and cereal. He hates anything “mixed together” like a casserole or soup or gumbo or chili. He says he “ate enough salads growing up” and he is not into veggies, smoothies I make (only the unhealthy ones from a smoothie shop), black beans, and no seafood either.
I eat everything, so this frustrates me. We are both 30 and trying to be healthier. Since I am the female, cooking just falls to me. I’m not saying he’s sexist, he’s not, he WILL cook…but he won’t cook healthy like I want to.
The problem is, I have NO idea what to cook. I am not a great cook, but I am more flexible, and like I said, I’ll eat anything. He will eat if I cook, but won’t ever eat leftovers. Plus he can never indicate what he would LIKE me to make.
He’s more into diets like Slim Fast, and sometimes I think he just skips meals. He did weight watchers for like two seconds. I am getting really frustrated. I used to puree all these veggies and sneak them into his food like he was four years old, which 1) was ridiculous and 2) I don’t have time for that crap anymore.
