My family

Thursday, August 27, 2009

My family members are picky eaters and the my meals eat reflect it. I rarely buy much fruits and vegetables because the only vegetable they will eat is broccoli and they are not all that big on fruit either. It's just three of us and I always feel like produce will go bad. Plus, when I cook diner for all of us, I try to cater to everyone else likes (pizza, mac and cheese, pork chops etc stuff like that). I don't have the will power, the funds, nor the energy it would take to make something separately and more healthy for myself. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

    I tend to eat what ever the kids don't so if they eat heavy on the mac and cheese and light on the broccoli then I eat heavy on the broccoli and light on the mac. It usually balances out that I get the good stuff and they just get a taste of the good stuff. The plan is working now my daughter is really starting to like the veg. so the more they are exposed to it they more their taste ubds get used to it. Good luck it takes a while.

    I have the same problem. I have been trying to get the kids to branch out but I still have one really picky eater. I try to prepare some things on the weekend that are healthy and I can eat all week. Usually, beans or veggie dishes. I keep other things on hand like salad stuff and have that every night. Sorry, I am rambling on. Good luck! emoticon

    Our kids are picky eaters - I don't make a lot of meals strictly for myself, but I do tend to cater to ONE person a night - one night, we'll eat what Buddy likes. one night, we'll eat what Punkin likes, etc. That way, everyone gets their favorite/requested meal and people end up trying new things.

    It might work. Give it a shot.
