I try to encourage my DS healthy diet but today he announced he is embarking on a high protein, muscle building diet & gave me a list of 5 meals a day he will be eating.

so £15 later for ingredients of 2 said meals (too late in the day to get all 5 in) I am cooking (right now) some shitty mince crap having already cooked a full meal at 6pm.

Should I encourage or serve him sausage a mash tomorrow as per norm before he bankrupts me ?

He's 17??? And giving you a list ? If he wants different food make him buy the ingredients and cook it himself !

I'd give him a food budget and let him buy and cook his own meals if he wants such a specialist diet.

Eh? Cook as normal and leave him to it. Why are you faffing around buying extra food and cooking extra meals?

Now he is complaining it is too spicy !!!

Guess I am being too soft as recent separation from DH but tomorrow he cooks for himself as really can't be arsed. Also means I only have a sandwich as not bothering cooking something for myself

Definitely get him cooking for himself, it's good practice for when he leaves home.
