    Hey, all

    Tonight I tried to have a green salad, for the first time in my life! and it was disgusting. I tried choking it down cause I know how healthy a good salad can be. It wasn't happening I was verbally gagging and was making myself nauseous. It got me thinking. A lot of the foods that I don't like tend to be because of the foods texture and not the taste.

    Does anyone else have problems with textures and if so how do they go around them? I hate avocados but today I mixed it in with a pasta dish and it was edible (I say this more because I don't know how to cook and less because the avocado lol)

    Would love to hear from others!

    I prefer crunchy. Mushy salad is the worst. I will anything if it tastes good but the crispier the better

    That's great that you tried a salad for the first time at age 22! It can take some time to adjust to healthy eating. But really, I was a vegetarian for years and never ate much salad. Never really liked it. You don't have to like salad either. There's so many ways to eat veggies other than a salad. Check out this other thread about ways to eat healthy veggies:

    DUDE!! I am EXACTLY the same way! Mayo is my number one enemy with sour cream is a VERY close second. And what's with cottage cheese. Some people do veggies with it, others fruit. And others add pepper to it. WTF is up with that?

    Trollonnaise... You obviously eat only junk foods, don't seem intent on change, and will fight one change... bet you eat fast foods a lot. Your eating issue is a combination not eating enough healthy foods, and emotional-psychological dependency on unhealthy junk meals.


    Cue your emotional response!

    Call me a foodie prick but this sort of thing really bothers me. Anything you would put in your body should be treated with respect (food, wine, and penis) Health concerns about your inability to eat salad aside, there are so many textures and flavors that you can explore that will give you a much more rewarding perspective of food.

    I agree. I don't understand how mayo is a white people things. It's fucking gross. Cottage cheese and sour cream are no better.

    Not big on oral either.


    I love salads. The crunch is epic. that being said, I also have like major beaver teeth. So I think veges kinda fit.

    My salad last night was Crunchy, Crisp... and well it started off cool icon_razz.gif

    It was: Romaine, baby spinach, arugalla, carrots, broccoli. Dressed with a roasted red pepper dressing and parm. (I wasn't a fan of the arugala too much of a musky/sour flavour)

    Yes I know it's hard to believe I've never had a salad :O Scary thought! but Im trying to change. Also, Im not a troll I'm really trying to change my life style

    Calibro, If only you eating enough for the both of us would give me some of the nutritionally content then I would be happy icon_smile.gif

    Camfer, I actually seen that post a little while ago! It's what inspired me to try avocado in a different way!

    Thanks for all the responses!

    try the salad at olive garden, lol. It's pretty good. If you just don't like it, then there are other healthy things you can eat.
