Travis (my Husband)

My husband and I are total opposites, perfectly paired and we go together like peas and carrots.  I would even dare to say soul mates.  I love my husband BUT…. to quote the legend Tina Turner “what’s love got to do with it”? To be honest he drives me nutty.  I’m not a naturally domestic person.  I have learned to enjoy it (sometimes) but cooking and making sure the men in my life have what they need is something I’ve had to work at.  I cook almost every evening and it is a huge challenge as to what to make for dinner night after night. To come up with interesting, good tasting, relatively healthy dinner options are tough. Do you feel my pain? To add even more complication to the mix, my husband has been a vegetarian for 27 years. He hasn’t eaten any meat for 27 years! Now before you go and get all impressed with his disciplined eating habits, let me add that he doesn’t like most vegetables and fruits either. I mean he doesn’t even like macaroni and cheese. So a better description of him is “the pickiest in all of history vegetarian”. So two days ago I ask “what would you like for dinner honey” and he answered his usual, “I don’t care, I’m flex, BUT by the way I’m on a low carb diet so no carbs”. Y’all I lost it! I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.  I mean if you don’t eat meat OR carbs, and you don’t like most veggies, what is left?!  So now I’m on the hunt for vegetarian low carb meal options that’s easy to make, in addition to cooking for my 2 growing boys who are carnivores. So Travis not eating meat and no carbs is causing me to stress eat chocolate and bread. Bread, bread I love bread J. I’m telling you being a wife, mom and a woman is the toughest job on the planet!

Do you have “I love my husband BUT” story…… I’d love to hear it!
