My boyfriend thought he hated mexican. and he hates dips and spice and really anything that isnt a bleached carb. (I sometimes dont know how he is still living)
However- the point is that he LOVES LOVES LOVES mexican. Even guacamole! Which is a veggie and a dip and has SPICE. This blew my mind.

The point mainly is that if you introduce it slowly enough and continually let them know that, yes, their eating habits bother you they will try to make the change. at least mine did and he has come leaps and bounds and I love it!

If boy-toy is reading this, here's my message: you're spoiled. Stop being a baby and eat something decent once in a while to make your girlfriend happy. It's not going to kill you to eat a hamburger with a mashed carrot in it. Cripes.

No woman wants to take care of a guy who doesn't take care of himself.

*hugs my boy-toy protectively*

He's not spoiled! He's just... loved ^_^
Ok, I spoil my boyfriend a little. Hes normally good about eating things, I'm just not horribly creative. He'll happily eat salad, so I know he won't turn his nose up at all veggies. I just wish he liked chicken Sad
I've made him lasagna, and alfredo, and he loved it, so I guess he isn't horribly picky. The only thing I really had to work on, was taking the meat out of the lasagna. He's no vegetarian, he just didnt want meat... weird...

^_^ I dont mind being creative, and I love him, and he likes my cooking. Yay! ^_^

I agree with the guacamole introduction. I made my super picky fella try the green goo, and now he's guac-crazy.

Failsafe Guacamole:

Take one or two very squashy avacados and smash 'em up.
add 2 tablespoons salsa for each avacado (you can add more or less to taste)
Sprinkle with taco seasoning and mix. you should just be able to see some of the granules. taste-testing is key.
Lime juice to taste! (less to bring out the avacado flavor and prevent oxydizing [browning like apples do in open air] more for a nice lime zing!
I also add some more granulated garlic and sea salt, but guacamole is all about the taste-test!

I also shred carrots into cheezy mashed potatoes. you can't really taste them, they look like cheeze, and they make the potatoes a nice orange colour.

I'm not much of a cooked veggie eater either. Does he eat green beans?

"company's coming green beans"
Steam green beans
stir-fry green beans in a wok with pine nuts (untill they're a light brown)
hit with soy sauce & garlic
Serve in a fancy dish.

It looks fancy because there's nuts in it. Pine nuts make everything better. You can also roast pepitos(pumpkin seeds avail in mexican supermarkets) and toss those with veggies.

I can get Mr. Picky to at least try things by daring him into it. I also keep a can of squid and eel around to show him what i'm serving could be ALOT more frightning.

If you want meat in your lasagna but he doesn't I have the perfect solution...cupcake lasagna. Assuming you have a cupcake tin at your disposal. You use wonton wrappers for the pasta. So you can make a bunch of little lasagnas with all different things in them to appeal to everyone's taste and it's so easy.

My guy is picky too, not as bad as some of yours, but hes first generation El Salvadorian and ate nothing but beans, rice and meat the first 15 years of his life--then he switched to fast food junkfood when he got his licence. 
But I really like to cook for him-what I do is that I make sure I have something I know he'll like, for example, meat (steak meatloaf etc) and then I add little dashes of food that he eats (like bread blahblahblah) then I add stuff that is new to him (like a cassarole or steamed veggies)  So he eats what he likes, and he tries some of the foods he hasn't had before.  Even if he doesn't like it, at least he tried it out in the first place, which is always an encouraging sign!  He actually had never had meatloaf before and was apprehensive about trying it, but because it was meat, he ate it and liked it!  One thing he will NOT try is hot tea!  I have no clue why!  Oh and I LOVE onions but he HATES them so when I cook something with onions, I make the onions chunky so he can pick them out.
