I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to put this... I didn't know if I put it in here with body and soul or relationships?
I'm really trying to start eating a lot healthier, but my boyfriend and I are nonetheless in our mid-twenties and he still lives on the typical college-boy type diet of eggs two ways, potatoes, and frozen pizza, frozen pizza, frozen pizza! We're frequently over at each others' places, so when we're at my place, it's still nourishing but healthy. But over there because of his budget it's frozen pizza or fast-food. I love all this junk food(who doesn't?!) but I know it's not healthy for me, or for him! I end up eating 3/4 of a pizza in one sitting a couple times a week! I do have a bit more to spend on my food budget and I know how to cook and be creative.

I don't want to do his grocery shopping nor tell him what to buy because it's his own money. Also I know he's not big on cooking anything complicated since he's tired when he gets home from work. But is there any way I can make sure we can eat something healthier together when I'm over at his place?

Have you talked about this with him yet at all?
