Cajoling the Carnivoire
Luckily, we've been making a few trips to New Seasons recently. This is wonderful. I'm not sure why the change of heart from the days we lived 10 minutes from one and never went. I think a lot of the guys he knows have been singing the praises of organic foods and why hfcs sucks, because god knows he never paid any attention to my The Omnivore's Dilemma rants.
So we were at New Seasons a couple weeks ago, and Matt picked out a box of Amy's Kitchen veggie burgers. "These look kinda good," he said. I'm not going to argue - my husband is putting a box of veggie burgers in the cart, and I don't even see a gun to his head.
I couldn't believe how much he loved them. Like, plotting when we can go back and get more loved them. Ate two loved them. Compared them to Burgerville deliciousness loved them. Couldn't believe he was full from a veggie burger, and I had to agree.
It's not easy to try and lose weight. In fact, it really blows. But when you find something that you can both enjoy, it's pretty great. Especially when it's not easy - the man doesn't like butternut squash. How can you hate butternut squash in October?? Well, maybe I'll convert him eventually. We've already come a long way, baby.
