I have resorted to looking up cookbooks for moms with picky kids.
It's not a matter of "Boohoo it's hard to cook for the two of us," but more like he doesn't eat right and sooner or later it's going to catch up to him. He knows this and he actively wants to change... but he's still picky.
He likes very limited vegetables..
Corn (but only with butter)
Green beans (but only
canned and with this brutal steak seasoning on it)
Salad (only if it's got cheese and gobs Ranch dressing on it)
I can sneak baby spinach in his salads and he doesn't mind most times, especially if he's just really hungry
Potatoes, but not sweet potatoes-- ever.
Broccoli, but only with a sweet Chinese sauce on it or in a cheesy soup or something like that
Tomatoes, though not tomato soup. Only in chunks on things. Salads, too. It's the same with peppers and onions. Though he eats the later a lot more.
Spinach, he makes an awesome spinach lasagna. It's made from frozen though, and he only eats it because he can't taste the spinach. I don't know how good frozen spinach is for you...
Edit: BEANS! A vegetarian that only eats Refried beans?!. He hates hummus and any other kind of bean
I think that's about it. It's it horrid. Most of the recipes say to puree veggies and sneak them in soups or pasta sauce. But the recipes are only for 1/4 cup because they're for children. I'm afraid that if I put more he wouldn't even eat it
Ugh, also he works as a Tire Tech at Sams and eats their pizza allllll the time
He needs to kick his grilled cheese, mac & cheese, and pizza binge. (A lot of cheese, yeah.)
ooh and weird! Oprah has a list of ten kid-friendly foods and one is bell pepper skins spread with cream cheese, or olives and cream cheese. I couldn't get any of the kids I know to eat that, even if I threatened waterboardinghttp://www.oprah.com/article/oprahan...af_peetes_list
