No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I'm a picky eater as well. I eat chicken tacos with fiber filled wheat tortillas and lots of veggies. Also, I make my own pizzas with lots of different ingrediants on either a tortilla or a pre-made crust. BBQ sauce can be used on a pizza or pizza sauce and they're both low in calories. I use turkey pepperonis and turkey meatballs to lower calories. I eat spaghetti with wheat noodles. I make my own salads which is great for a picky eater. Salads are just so easy to personalize. Sometimes I don't have a meal, I just pick at foods and have a mish-mosh of whatever I feel like. I have a veggie night where I just sit down to a big plate of bell peppers with some laughing cow cheese. I know that's not what you asked for but it's some of the strategies that I use.
WOW I'm so much more of a picky eater than you are lol. I eat no salads very very few veggies!!! :(
Try allrecipes.com or recipegoldmine.com for recipes. It's hard to make suggestions if you're picky because I don't know what you're picky about. :P
If I may be so bold to ask... do you want to STAY a picky eater, or do you want to work on the reasons why and move towards eating more and healthier?
I hate being a picky eater. I would love to learn to like new foods. Its like when I try something that I don't like a gag on it! Any tips would be welcome!
I am also a picky eater. Actually thats not strictly true, I am a VERY picky eater!!! and like you I struggle for food inspiration. I love Chicken (its my my fav) but wont eat it off the bone. Im not a fan of beef, pork or any other meats. i will eat it but in tiny amounts (beef in a stew maybe). I hate any fat being left on meat, Im not a fan of veggies, and fruits 50-50 (have to be in the right mood for it) .!!!. Do we want to be a picky eater of course we dont!! but again like you i know what i like and i know what i dont. When your stuck in a food rut how do you get out of it and change your whole way of thinking and tasting??? beats me!!
Its a hard thing to overcome being picky. I would advise you to make a vow to try a new fruit or vegetable or other food once per week. You need to have variety to be successful and I am sure there are many things you will love to eat that are healthy that you have yet to discover. It worked for me!
Thank you. I think I'm going to make that a new years goal!
Sometimes if you find a different way to prepare something you might actually like it! My kid's don't like zucchini but I tried a new recipe where I stuffed the zucchini with chicken sausage & veggies and melted cheese on top & they loved it! So do't dismiss something completely, try new ways & recipes to cook it!
