This is not the post I wanted to post today. I have another one in the can ready for you, but I got derailed last night by incredulous shock. Remember the post about kids not eating fruits and vegetables? I’d mentioned that two authors had “revolutionized” feeding their children by making up bland vegetable purees and adding them to normal recipes to boost the nutritional content. Examples were adding spinach to brownies, cauliflower to chicken nuggets and so on.
Well apparently one of the chefs has a second book out. The Sneaky Chef : How to Cheat on Your Man in the Kitchen Hiding Healthy Foods in Hearty Meals any Guy Will Love.
I’m agog at this. I swear this is worse then A Man A Can and A Plan.
At least in Man/Can/Plan its straightforward in regards to what you are getting. This act of sneaking around and adding things to someone else’s food “for their own good” is degrading to the person you are cooking for, and to assume that the woman is in the kitchen “cooking for her man” smacks of sexism as well.
This whole concept is just immature and I hope that folks “fooling” their families learn to educate them instead and work with them on their food issues.
