    why? When he's only stating how it is not being fussy.

    It's easier to list the foods that DH will eat, as opposed to the things he won't. I think I have the fussiest husband in the world.
    He only eats:
    Plain white fish, grilled, like flake or basa fillets, no other seafood besides tinned tuna.
    No other meat of any kind.
    No fruit.
    Veggies -only corn and potatoes.
    Plain pasta made with smooth passata to which I add herbs and garlic (can't be store bought sauce because it's too chunky.)
    Pasta or ricotta ravioli with cheese sauce or pesto.
    Cheese pizzas.
    Rice
    Toast with vegemite, only with butter, never margarine.
    Chocolate.
    He will eat the vegetarian fake meat products like Quorn so I replace the meat in his meals with those.
    That's pretty much it. I have learnt to be a very creative cook using minimal ingredients for him! He really is shocking.

    My DH is super fussy. But it doesn't bother me. I dont mind cooking different meals or adapting them for him.

    The only things dh doesn't like is seafood, mushrooms and pineapple...he will pretty much eat anything else. If I put any of those things in a dish he will pick them out and put them on my plate which is fine by me!...all the more for me since I love the three things he hates

    I don't like 3 day old fruit salad either, but if he wants it fresh, he can make it himself.

    He's just being fussy about most other things. If my husband was like that, he would be cooking for himself.

    My DH will literally eat anything. He even finishes the kids meals rather than 'them go to waste'.

    It wouldn't bother me if there were one or two things he didn't like though, as most people have a couple of things they don't like.

    I do think it is rude to complain about food someone has gone to the trouble of making for you. Even my kids aren't allowed to do that. They tell me instead 'Mum, this probably isn't my favourite' haha so diplomatic!

    DH is pretty good and will eat most things. His mum was very much into the kids eating everything on their plate whether they liked it or not. As a result it's taken 5 years for DH to be brave enough to tell me he doesn't like something and for him not to eat it.

    The kids are pretty good. The eldest doesn't eat cheese, mashed potato, eggs or baked beans.

    DP is very fussy. He will eat (mostly without whinging):

    Plain thin beef sausages
    White Bread
    Ham and Pineapple Pizza (though will whinge if it's homemade, or from numerous pizza shops - there's really only one place he likes them from)
    Old El Paso soft shell tacos, only with mince, cheese, lettuce and tomato
    Takeaway (even then, he'll only ever order the same thing from the same place, every time)
    Pre-packaged caesar salad
    Sausage carbonara
    Bacon Sandwiches (though complains if there's too much or too little bacon)
    Medium steak (though complains if there's a hint of fat he can detect on it)
    Deep-fried hot chips
    Pizza Pockets (ham and pineapple only)
    Beef 2 minute noodles
    Nachos made with cheese-flavoured corn chips, grated cheese and Doritos salsa, microwaved (ew)
    Chicken Nuggets (Inghams only).

    So... yeah. That's seriously the list of food he will eat without whinging. Some other things he will eat, so long as he whinges about it while he eats it... or he'll have a mouthful or two before leaving mostly a full plate of food... other things he won't even touch.

    He would honestly rather go hungry... or just go to the servo and buy a packet of chips or something.

    He is the worst person to cook for. I mostly just cook whatever I want, and he can starve if he doesn't want to eat it.

    My hubby will eat anything, however post weight loss surgery chooses to eat the same thing every night... So I make little bags of chicken and broccoli put them in the freezer... So even though it's two meals it's easy.

    At the moment most nights I'm making three.. As I have gestational diabetes... My boys love their pastas etc.
