Q&A: Eating Healthy When Hubby is the Cook

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Q & A Saturday! This is a special weekly post of answering reader questions in more detail.

Today’s dilemma:

” Hubby does the cooking in our house and I told him I want to give up sugar and white flour, but he just doesn’t know what to cook now. Please help!”

My response:

Yay!!!!! Hubby wants to cook and help you eat healthier! That’s a great start! He just needs some easy meals that he knows you will happily eat and the family will enjoy as well.

Here’s what you must do in order to make this transition into healthier eating.

  1. You must do your homework and learn how to read food labels. Check out my video series to learn more.
  2. You must offer to do some of the food shopping so will get the healthy foods you need for meals and snacks. You MUST be proactive. You cannot expect him to make a complete change overnight. It will take time, so only focus on one meal a day then work on the rest.
  3. You must make your own snacks. Buying prepackaged snacks are expensive and full of additives not to mention tons of sugar. This will be a huge help to him and probably alleviate some stress for both of you if you become the snack making momma.
  4. And the final advice comes straight from the mouth of my hubby, “Serve meat, potato and veggies…no sugar or white flour, so everyone is happy!” {FYI: My hubby would eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I let him :) }

Here are some of my TOP choices for MAKE AHEAD meals and snacks that are easy, healthy, weight conscious and family friendly!

Breakfasts:

Lunch:

Dinner:

Snacks:

 

If you’re husband or partner cooks in your house  CONSIDER IT A BLESSING!

You can make healthy changes without causing friction if you do so with a smile on your face and knowledge in your hands!

BE INFORMED, BE PREPARED AND BE EXCITED because it can only get better from here!

Hugs to you,
