Healthy Recipes for Adults that are Picky Eaters

When you think of picky eaters you mainly think of kids. You tend to forget that those kids often grow up to be adults that are picky eaters.

As I’ve gotten older my pallet has expanded a little but for the most part, I am still considered a picky eater. Especially when it comes to eating healthy.

#1 – Healthy Mac & Cheese

Healthy Mac & Cheese by Chocolate Covered Katie
Chocolate Covered Kate

Mac & Cheese is a common favorite among picky eaters. This version has a little broccoli thrown in. I wouldn’t recommend this for kids because they can see the broccoli. But as an adult, I can know it’s in there as long as I don’t taste it.

Check out the recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie here.

#2 – Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

  1. I don’t think the creator of this article understands what a real picky eater is. Most picky eaters, including myself, wouldn’t go anywhere near any of these recipes.

      Hi Jessica,

      I myself am a very picky eater. The key to this article is the word “healthy”. For me personally, this is a big struggle for me. I have key things that I like to eat but the majority of the items are not healthy. What I tried to showcase are recipes that are kinda basic, like mac and cheese, with a healthy twist. It’s going to be trial and error to see if you’ll like these healthy versions.

      I was totally sure everyone wouldn’t like every recipe. For example, I don’t like the Mac and Cheese with broccoli but I love the pasta sauce and the banana blueberry muffins.

      I’m also pretty sure that there are some picky eaters out there that are pickier then I am and may not like ANY of these healthy recipes.

      As a picky eater, what are some of your favorite things to eat? I’d love to see if I can find some healthy versions. If your favorites are already healthy then that’s even better. Any feedback you have would help enhance this article.
