Q: I'm moving in with my boyfriend of several years and I'm very excited! I'm particularly looking forward to cooking and eating together, but he's much pickier eater than I am. He doesn't like seafood, most vegetables, and really anything that isn't the familiar Italian, Mexican, and "American" food, or very Americanized Chinese.

Editor: Adrienne, congratulations on the big move! I suggest starting with what he likes by making slightly healthier versions of Italian and Mexican comfort foods, or Chinese stir-fries that go heavier on the veggies and lighter on the meat and sauces. For example, enchiladas are easy to make healthier with the addition of extra veggies and less cheese. (I like to add cooked, shredded chicken and roasted sweet potatoes to this recipe.)
And here are some more tips for feeding picky eaters:
Readers, what are your suggestions for recipes that are healthier, but still appeal to picky eaters?
