Oftentimes, I forget the best way to settle a dispute is through compromise. Just this morning, I asked my husband if he wanted me to make some homemade soup and his answer was, “You can make YOU some soup.” SMH
Here’s the problem… While I am focused on practicing a healthier lifestyle, my husband is going off the deep end with his eating habits. My biggest concern is the chance of my eating habits taking a turn for the worse if I make his taste buds top priority. I didn’t say this out loud, but my initial thought was, “You’re gonna eat this soup today or starve.” I then thought to myself, “How much time will it take for me to just create two separate dishes?” I also thought, “Do I really want to expend my energy being mad today or at peace?”
The fact is, after a little creativity, it didn’t take me very long at all to create my healthy choice meal and his hardy man meal. I used the same basic ingredients to include ground turkey, onions, peppers, and chopped spinach. Of course, I opted for zucchini noodles for my soup and I incorporated white rice into his dish.
At the end of the day, It was a win win situation!! It was just that simple…because I chose to compromise and create two similar styled meals, I didnt have to compromise my peace of mind on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. 😉
