Let’s talk about compromise…

Living in a household where everyone might not be on the same page when it comes to eating habits, compromise is a must.  My home is no different.

My husband is all about the butter!  He loves flavor and fat and creaminess.  I’m not going to say that I don’t love these palate pleasers as well, but not on a daily basis like my husband would prefer to have them.  Do you find yourself in this position?

It has taken years, literally, to get to an agreeable compromise between myself and my husband.  And it’ still a work in progress.  For instance, when we first started dating, he would eat the Hungry Man frozen dinners.  It took me a little “educating” to explain how much salt, preservatives and lack of nutrients there are in them.  But, he finally agreed that there plenty of other options out there to fill his belly.

Then it was cold cereal every morning.  Again, not harping but “educating” led me to get him to eat a true breakfast in the morning instead a bowl full of sugar and refined carbohydrates.  Actually, when he realized how much fuller his stomach was for longer, I could easily rest my case.

Even just the other night, he wanted fried shrimp.  We compromised on coconut encrusted, sautéed shrimp over a spicy edamame salad.  It was delicious and we both loved it! So what is your compromise looking like at your house?
