Not About Food

When your spouse do not care about foods.


Not About Food 65

When your spouse do not care about foods.

A Hypothetical Question:

I am sure that most of you greatly care about foods. Maybe you love trying the new restaurant around the corner, or maybe you cannot wait to try out the new key lime pie recipes, or maybe you have been saving money for the newest Green Big Egg smoker grill.

Now what if your spouse does not care what so ever about food? He/she realizes the nutrient importance of foods, but do not share the variety and enjoyment in food related issues. To your spouse, eating/drinking is like breathing air -- very important, but nothing to get excited about.

Is your spouse like this? If so, how to handle your food obsession about him/her? Do you tone it down? Do you hide it? Do you try to convince/justify? If your spouse is NOT like this, then can you imagine what you would in such a circumstance?

P.S.: It does not have to be your spouse really. If you have a story to share about someone very close to you, that is cool too.
