    Ha! That’s hilarious. That reminds me of those cookbooks like the one from jerry seinfeld’s wife where they sneak veggie puree into meals. Like spinach into brownies!

    Nice job! My husband already ate pretty healthy. Actually he was pretty much living off george forman chicken breast and white rice so he was pretty much willing to eat anything I made. 

    I haven’t had to sneak veggies into food but in the name of sneaky wives I’ll tell this story. I’m almost 6 months pregnant, and last friday I bought myself a box of girl scout cookies from someone at work. I got samoas, which are the caramel and coconut ones? My husband was like gross those probably have peanut butter in them huh?

    Yup…. definitely… 

    I don’t want to share my cookies. LOL

    @MsJ2theZ:  LOL i have to admit that i hide my favorite treats. 😉 😉


    my FI is a pretty healthy eater. he likes some junk food, some fast food, and some dinners out, but i’d say 80% of his diet is really healthy. i’m the one who likes junk food more than him! he cooks dinner most of the time, and i do have to reign in his use of butter/oil, but overall he tends to want to make healthier foods.

    although, there was this one recipe he made that had farro in it. i absolutely loved it, he did not like it. i will never get to eat it again since i don’t know the recipe. </3  he also doesn’t see why i like wheat berry, quinoa, etc. but he has a deep love for vegetables. 🙂

    We eat healthy more than 50% of the time I’d say.  Our downfall is wanting to go out all the time and we generally go out to eat between 1-3 times a week, with a couple of drinks to go with dinner each time.

    We cook really healthy at home, though.  We make a big batch each week or so of hard boiled eggs, quinoa, grilled chicken for meals.  I am starting WW next week and he’s excited for the influence that’ll have on him and us as a couple. 🙂

    @creeative1:  Mr. 99 is the “good” eater in our relationship,  but things got totally derailed when he got hurt and then wanted all of my rib stickin cookin to make the owies stop…so it was homemade mac n cheese, chili, chicken noodle soup, meatloaf, fried chicken, pigs in blanket and anything else you can imagine…we got it over with and got kind of fat…and I won’t lie…it was really, really FUN!

    @creeative1:  I eat very healthy. FI eats a healthy dinner because I make it. Other than that, he eats junk 60% of the time. I try to not keep junk food in the house, but he always brings it in.

    @creeative1:  My husband was already a healthy eater when I met him so we’re compatible about that.  But when my son was growing up he was such a picky eater when he was little – I used to sneak healthy stuff into his meals the same way you do to your husband.  🙂

    I don’t know that my DH was a healthy eater…he mostly just ate things like rice and soy sauce, spaghetti, and fast food when left to himself.  Or random snacking.  I don’t really consider that healthy, but it is out of ease more than anything.

    But he’s never been a picky eater or opposed to trying things so he just eats whatever I make him (outside of the 2-3 foods he doesn’t like).  I eat healthy, so he tends to.  I also do all of our grocery shopping, so there really isn’t a lot of junk for him to eat anyway.

    So I don’t really have to sneak things in, but there are easy things you can do like adding more veggies to pastas or making things like stir frys that use a lot of veggies in addition to the meat and rice.
