5 Ways To Help Your Husband Eat Better

This post contains affiliate links.  Read full disclosure here.

My goal this year has been to clean up my eating and get into a better exercise regimen so I can be healthier and more confident.  I’ve done pretty well so far (yay!), but it made me realize how much my husband struggles with it.

I mean, he actually enjoys vegetables, and he’ll eat pretty much whatever I make for dinner (even if it’s hours later), so pickiness isn’t an issue: the issue is time.

And it’s not uncommon.  That whole donut-eating-cop stereotype has a lot to do with police officers not really having time to sit and have a relaxed mealtime.  They’re usually downing energy drinks and whatever food they can eat in a hurry before they’re needed again.

My husband doesn’t have a lot of close friends, but he has one who’s been a constant ever since they first met.

He’s always there for us.  He was at our out-of-state wedding without hesitation.  When the Hubs was faced with the prospect of losing his job, Paul drove four hours to where we lived at the time just to be with us.  And then there’s the time he pulled our car out of a ditch after a snafu with AAA, or the time he helped us get rid of a mattress.

He’s awesome… even if A has a weird fear of him. Oh, well.  It won’t be long before Uncle Paul is his favorite and Mom and Dad are old news.
