In a perfect world, every man would love their veggies.
They would request green smoothies in the morning, kale chips in their lunches, and tofu stir fry for dinner.
I am LOL.
Today, on our way home from an outing, (this was AFTER dinner), my husband asked if we could stop at McDonalds.
To get the new McRib.
The McDump...Or whatever.
One man has not been excited about the McRib coming back, as my husband was. I'm talking, literally salivating.
Despite my intentions to shove veggies down his throat, he has a place in his heart for fast foods...(which in turn are hurting his heart, it's really quite ironic.) I figure I am not the only wifey out there, pleading with their spouses to come clean and switch green, begging them to say goodbye to the scary man dressed in a yellow jumpsuit with bright red hair.
But we don't live in a perfect world, we live in reality.
Reality says that men(and most people in the world) love fast food, and the thought of coming home to a tasty healthy tofu stir fry really doesn't get the average person's taste buds dancing.
But if there is something that I have learned with the hubby, it's that the more 'obvious' it is that the meal is healthy, the less likely he is going to touch it. For example, in no way shape or form would the hubby be excited about a salad topped with tofu.
Buuuuttt, this is a GiNoRmOuS But my friends, if I threw on some sick wit' it salad dressing, yummy crunchy coated nuts, some flavored veggies, a little touch of goat cheese, and a slice of warm buttered bread...
Well then he is more likely to dig in.
Fast forward to Halloween.
Every year my family makes chili and cornbread. This year was no different, except I was going full on vegetarian chili.
