My fiance is a carnivore! He's willing to eat vegetarian meals if I cook or if he can add meat to his. I'm fine with that, but he finds it inconvenient and he complains that there's too much tofu. He says I'm picky enough and he's always complaining about the price of my groceries (lots of fresh fruits and veggies, which isn't as much as his meat and processed foods). He says that I waste food, but I don't! I used to buy veggies and have them just sit in the fridge. But now I'm sure to eat all of it if I can. What can I do to help him understand me and make it easier for both of us?<br><br>

Nothing. It's up to him to understand that not everyone is the same as he is; we all make different choices.

Are you paying for your own food? If so, then what business is it of his how much you spend on your own cruelty-free foods?<br><br>
I'm not sure how you can make someone understand. I've been with the same person for three years and only recently made the change to veg*nism. Had my significant other not been supportive of something so important to me as my change to veg*nism, I would've broken it off with him.

I am glad my husband don't complain like that he does alittle, however we are trying new things to make it easier to make it veg friendlier, I still cook the meat for him that is approved what he can eat now since he is sick, so we are looking into loads of meatless meals, I am hoping that we can find about at least 50 that he likes so we don't have to worry about this However , I would suggest to sit down and make a menu for a week or month, this takes alot to plan. So pick a day that he is not around or is able to help you plan. With this way you won't be wasting money or food and other resources.

He's not horribly bossy, just stressed about how we spend money and how he can't just toss some chicken in the oven and call it good. I've just showed him some recipes for the week and he was fine with them. I'm making some things that he can just grill something and add. (He always cooked the meat in the past, so he's ok with only having to cook the meat. He just doesn't like to cook fresh veggies cause of the prep, so we've decided that I'll do the prep and he'll be doing the cooking.<br><br>
I hope that other people that relate can help by this thread. =]
