This post is about my other half. Since he was young he's despised veggies, can't stand them & won't eat them if they're too 'chunky' - he had terrible eating habits but so far I've got him onto more rice based meals, less junk food, more water and no sugary drinks, and I'm in the process of getting him in the habit of drinking 2-3 portions of fruit through (100%) fruit juice which he's perfectly happy with. But with the lack of greens I worry he's not getting enough essential vitamins, even though he has no visible deficiencies (it seems), and I'm hoping there's some helpful members who have had a similar issue (likely with children instead of a grown man!) but I am very determined on helping him make the right choices regarding food while not making him hate eating or forcing him. Obviously he's an adult, we're in our 20's but since we intend to spend our lives together, I worry about his health in the long run. I've had the idea of freezing kale, crunching it up into very fine pieces and adding it to meals, we don't have a blender but eventually it'd be nice to make pesto and sauces blended smoothly enough for him not to notice or taste them when we can afford one down the line, and unfortunately he doesn't like soup, but for now does anyone have any other suggestions? Some vitamin-rich alternatives maybe?
Thanks for any advice anyone may have.
