At first I tried the whole, if you don't eat your salad you don't get to play...but that wasn't any fun for me so that went down the drain kind of fast. Then I tried, well I'll just put a vegetable/fruit on the table with every meal, this seems to work sometimes but he is picky and only eats certain vegetables and fruits. I have since asked point blank "What vegetables do you like so I know what to buy?" His answer "Green beans." That's its guys he likes green beans, the only vegetables that I can get the man to eat is green beans, I've tried corn and peas and he won't eat them. My cupboard is now stocked with green beans.
Then one night was I was lying in bed, that's where I do my best thinking it came to me, it came to me that he will eat the majority of the vegetables that I cook in something. I was quite successful in getting Big-D to eat most of a salad the other night.
(Because I am awesome I even made homemade tortilla chips.)
Combine salt, chili powder, cumin and chicken into a Ziploc and shake until evenly coated. Add oil and chicken to a skillet.
Once the chicken starts to brown, add onions.
Next add peppers, I choose green and orange.
Cut up some lettuce and tomatoes, top with chicken.
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 lb chicken breast, cut into strips
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 1 orange pepper, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- Combine salt, chili powder, cumin and chicken strips into a Ziploc baggie and shake until evenly coated.
- In a large skillet, add oil and cook until the chicken starts to brown. Add onions and green peppers. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink the middle and the vegetables are tender. Make sure to stir frequently.
- Top lettuce with chicken and tomatoes. Serve with tortilla chips.
