Hey guys, I don't know about you, but do any of you struggle eating healthy food because your partner doesn't want to? I did well yesterday in terms of my diet, had my tomato and feta on toast for brekkie again, lunch was some vegetable stew (just
I worked late so I didn't have time to go to the gym and have a proper workout, and my fella was off for the night so I wanted to make us a nice dinner (normally i make myself something really simple when i'm cooking for myself after my gym workout) so I just had to make do with a quick 2 mile run. I made us a nice chilli con carne (lots of veg in it too), and I asked my fella before if that was going to be ok for dinner (he's been complaining I cook too many pasta dishes, as he eats this a lot at work), and he was like "yes but I don't want it with rice I want it with chips". So I had it with rice, he had it with chips, but of course I still nicked like about 10 oven chips. His diet is atrocious, he just wants everything deep-fried, with chips, with white bread and butter, with mayo and cheese on top. He says his favourite type of food is "American" (basically anything meaty/covered in cheese I have surmised).
Myself, I love healthy food. Don't get me wrong, I love a good kebab like many others, but I also love salads, I like vegetarian food (I grew up with both my parents being vegetarian so don't see meat as a big deal), I like soups. I just cant get away with cooking it for him. He's like "i don't like hippie stuff", hippie stuff being beans, lentils, , nuts, fruit, salad, soup, brown rice or anything wholemeal or seedy. Anyone else have this problem, trying to be healthy eating/exercising but hitting barriers when it comes to their partner?
Today I will have some leftover chilli, with grated apple and rice for lunch (turned it into a sorta salad), then a basic vegetable stew for dinner. My fella is working late so I can eat what I want. And i'll work out for 2 hours fingers crossed.
