Me and my mother moved in together because we are both on disability and have similar health issues. Our preferred diets are like night and day. I prefer a low sodium, flavorful spices, and low fat type diet. My mother prefers a high salt, with little to no spices (meaning bland), and a fatty diet. We have diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol issues. We buy groceries together and she refuses to get skinless chicken, lean ground beef or turkey, and has a love for regular pasta (she hates the healthy alternatives). Now I'm not totally innocent. I hate fake sweeteners, but I use sugar sparingly. I have to cook separate meals for us both; which is a pain and a concern. Can some one make any suggestions? I have switched Bison or dear meat out for her meat balls in her pasta and she never new and complimented the meal. But if I tell her what I did She hits the ceiling. I don't like deceiving her; but it seems to be the only way to get her to eat healthy.
