I am convinced that a paleo way of eating will help my family reverse some of the problems we are having. My kids will put up a fuss because I have let our diet slip so far from the lovely mostly organic, local, nourishing traditions style diet we used to eat. They have become massive sugar addicts. I am embarrassed to even admit how bad it is (even though it is probably not as bad as most of America). My big problem is my husband.
My husband is diabetic and has all the things that go along with that. He is over weight and although he has lost some weight he still has some to go. He wants to become a cop but needs to pass the physical tests. The only thing is he hates veggies and I think only chokes them down because he has to. The list of veggies he hates is long and really limits me. What am I to do about that? He hates:
Mushrooms spinach greens of any kind (kale, collards, etc) summer squash zucchini radishes cucumber winter squash beets any fluffy lettuce (he only likes iceburg and romaine drenched in dressing) okra sweet potatoes (tolerated roasted or fried) cauliflower green beans (used to like them but now complains)
What does that leave? Onions, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, peppers, a few roots and carrots? Meat he has no problem with of course.
I am thinking I will just cook and he who wants to be picky can starve LOL Help!
