Picky (adult) eater

archerbarbie | Sep 27, 201710:20 AM

So my boyfriend is a very picky eater, (i know some things i am picky on as well, but hes just bad!)

He will not eat anything with noodles, has been that way since he was a kid, and i just found out from his mom that one day she served spaghetti and meatballs, and the next week she served another noodle based dish and he claimed he was allergic... now that hes older he says that the thought or even looking at anything noodles makes him gag... I am a carb lover and a mac n cheese enthusiast!! But since we've been living together I cant make anything noodle based

He also will not touch any veggies (except avocado and i am highly allergic) I made steak potatoes and corn over the weekend and he wouldnt touch the corn..

No deli meats unless it was toasted, no rice of any kind.... No asian inspired dishes or indian food...

He just will eat meat and potatoes if he could (and he does)

I have no idea how to get him to venture out of his comfort zone and at least try something...

Every week we eat the same things but on different days (to help change it up he says LOL)

If anyone has any tips or tricks i am so willing to take that and run with it!
