Let them help you cook
Most people don’t like something they don’t understand. Your family may not like the keto way of life because they don’t understand it. Let your spouse and kids help you cook. Show them how easy it is to cook and enjoy keto dishes. Let the kids help you cut up veggies. Involve your spouse in the meal planning and cooking process.
Keep Keto friendly foods on hand
If you want the whole family on the keto train, all you have to do is keep keto friendly foods on hand. Don’t buy the junk that your family enjoys eating. They will be forced to eat what you make, which is awesome.
They may not think it’s awesome at first, but they will eventually come around to trying what you’re making.
Take special requests
Trying to get the whole family on the keto train may mean a little bribery. Give your family the power to ask you to make certain things. Tell them you’re taking requests and that you’ll make a few dishes they are interested in trying.
Giving your family a little bit of power behind that they want to try can make a world of difference. People love the thought of something being their idea.
