Today I would like to talk about our Families and Spouses. Whether its a hubby like mine or a wifey. I have read so many comments from others trying to eat healthy of they don't know how they will get their spouse or kids to eat the same way.
Its been such a struggle for me to get him to eat sugar free and healthy like me. Actually at times it really hurts my feelings (like today) that most of the time he won't even taste my stuff. He just plain refuses. At least 80% of the stuff I make, he won't taste or touch. So most of my goodies, nut butters, pizzas, muffins and whatever I make I have to eat all by myself.
So that's why you see me eat toast with my homemade nut butters a bunch of times in a row. I have to eat it till its all gone then I make a different flavor. I make sweet treats and put some in the freezer and take them out 2 at a time.
I refuse to buy the sugar laden or processed foods anymore, so he has to get it himself if he wants it. I will not let him talk me into eating anything I know I shouldn't. Trust me - sometimes its hard for him to understand - but he just says OK.
My point to you is that no matter how others in your household are eating, you don't have to eat with them. I make hubby fend for himself a lot. Mostly because of his weird hours. Him being a Fireman he has a much different eating schedule then me. I always try to eat my dinner and be done by 7pm, but for him he wants to eat at 9pm sometimes.
Eating Healthy can sometimes be a lonely way of eating when you are the only one in the room doing it - but I am used to it by doing it for almost 3 & 1/2 years now. We can't force them to eat the same way as us. My taste buds are much different now than his or that of 3 & 1/2 years ago.
My point is:
It's OK to Be Different...
A couple of quick things;
I made it just like my zucchini crust pizza but added in a can of chicken in the crust. then topped it with the buffalo sauce, tiny bit of mozzarella cheese and turkey pepperoni. YUM.
I made some Coconut butter yesterday and mixed it with some cinnamon and vanilla stevia and put it on one of my toast this morning. So Good...
Be Strong Everyone and know that WE CAN do this!!
