JUST MOVE OUT.

i agree, i agree, he is a despot. if he wants to be so picky, let him do the planning and work. never , ever let any boy friend, or girl friend for that matter, give you orders. keep in mind he is not going to change.

Okay, so he'll eat ramen and take out. Does he not realize the processed foods in those kinds of meals? I'd say give in on some of the stuff but on others he'll have to deal. Okay to no tomato sauces but everything fresh is a bit much. Let him know you'll try to make things he'll like but you cannot meet all of these demands. Let him know if you are to be in charge of "kitchen stuff" then he has to give up some control.

Even if he's not trying to be difficult, he has made some difficult demands.

He needs to pack his own lunch. Seriously. Let him choose whatever suits him.

And no leftovers EVER is really unreasonable. If he means that, let him pay for ALL the food you two buy EVERY TIME you buy it. When he sees you throw away perfectly good food that you cannot finish, he should smarten up. If he doesn't then something is wrong.

I'd roast a whole chicken and then use it in several meals. Roast chicken the first night, and then burritos, casserole, soup the following nights.
