How to get your Husband TO NOT eat raw!

So....I set out on a journey to convert our kitchen to an incredible, healthy, raw, vegan safe-haven for us to bask in our new life together. We can enjoy our time together, love each other, and keep each other accountable for good health, especially when we have a diet that supports it. OK! Good, now he won't die until he's like 110 (and he'll be totally hot the whole time). But, as I've come to notice here and there, Andrew could really take the diet or leave it. If I cooked a huge lump of meat and piled it with all kinds of gross stuff, he'd eat it. He, uh, really values understanding our privileged position as we really can eat whatever we want whenever we want it right now...and will eat anything if he's hungry.

But here are some ways I've learned in our first week raw to get him to very much dislike eating raw. Heed my advice:

1. When your husband tells you he doesn't like zucchini, don't make him this:

Zucchini Linguini....with some gross sauce (uh, 2 raws)


2. When your husband tells you he doesn't like zucchini, don't make him this:

Raw Zucchini Hummus? (... 1 raw)


3. When your husband says you're are on a budget, don't run out and buy a dehydrator, a blender, a food processor, a water filter, a ton of healthy, organic groceries, etc., without consulting him.


4. When your husband says you're are on a budget, don't run out and buy all the supplies needed for a home garden without consulting him.


5. Don't hand your husband a glass of pepper/clementine "green" smoothie. He won't like it.


6. When your husband doesn't really like spicy foods, don't feed him something loaded with cayenne pepper.


I'm sure in the coming weeks I will have more to add here.....unfortunately! Until then.....
