Battling your partner in the kitchen: He wants hamburgers & I want fish (healthy vs unhealthy food)
I'm the one that does the cooking in the house, but my boyfriend never has a shortage of suggestions on what I should make. What can I say, I'm with a very opinionated man. LOL.
When I started this weight loss journey, I talked to him about the changes I was going to make in my diet and how it was going to affect the way that I cooked. I wasn't going to be frying a lot of food, I'd be replacing ground beef with ground turkey, we were going to be eating a lot more lean protein and vegetables, etc. He was fine with it at first.
And then he remembered that he likes hamburgers. And pork chops. And fried chicken.
So now he's asking me to buy ground beef again. And to make more of the foods he likes. Which, let's face it, I miss like crazy. I'd give my right arm to be able to eat like him and not gain a pound. But if I even look at a hamburger, my butt grows 3 inches.
I told him that I won't be making 2 different meals, but I will institute a cheat night where I cook something less than healthy. I want to see if I can make mix ground beef and ground turkey together to make a less fatty burger, but I kind of doubt that would fly with him.
Do you guys have any low fat, low calorie, "healthy but still yummy" recipes? I'm dying here.
