I have learned to adapt what I cook to satisfy my family for the most part.
I am going vegan as I am allergic to dairy.
Hubby is on a cardiac diet and is lactose intolerant.
Daughter is lactose intolerant and a very picky eater.
Son very much needs to lose weight, but is resistant. No special dietary concerns.
Mother needs a high protein diet, but not too high. She has dementia and cirrhosis fo the liver from a bad blood transfusion.
For the most part, I plan healthy meals, and where they have meat, I have a different protein, and if it's a vegetable my daughter does not like, I always have baby carrots on hand. Also, for those few things the kids don't like, they use ketchup, mustard or some other sauce to drown the taste and eat it all. It's a lot of work on me, but as I have done ti for a while, it becomes rote and I'm okay with it.
