This is something I struggle with nearly every day. I have gradually gotten up to where I can count on the fingers of one hand how many fruits I like, and how many vegetables I like, which is progress considering how much I used to hate virtually all of them.

I have figured out that if I expect to meet and surpass my fitness goals, which are continually evolving, I have to eat to fuel a high-performance machine. Essentially, that means lean proteins, complex carbs, and continually monitor/reduce any alcohol or chocolate consumption. The booze and chocolate part is painful.

I make and freeze stuff that I know everybody will eat that is high-protein, like spaghetti sauce. I switched to whole-grain pasta and sneak chickpeas, black beans etc. into dishes that lend themselves to that kind of thing.

I also jumped on the Greek yogurt bandwagon. I mix it with fruit and fake sugar stuff, which isn't terribly healthy I know, but it's a low-maintenance way to eat fruit. I can't f*cking stand fruit that leaks on you.
