I HATE Salad :(

I guess I am the only person in the world that hates salad - and I mean HATE. As soon as it is in my mouth, I start wretching

I WANT to like it, but so far, 26 years of trying to like it isn't helping...

Any suggestions? Alternatives? Am I really the only one? Help, please

Yes. You are apparently the only person in the universe who hates salad. I assume you mean anything leafy green. How 'bout tomatoes and mozzarella? (Slices of tomatoes and mozzarella intermingled, sprinkled with lemon juice and olive oil, salt and pepper). Do you like cucumbers? They make a great salad all by themselves with a little vinaigrette.

I realize I'm not *really* alone I am the only person I know that cannot eat salad - my mum says to just accept it. I'm 26 and lettuce, tomatos, and leafy things just make me gag

I know it isn't healthy, but I am at a loss for what to do - my stomach was upset for over 3 hours tonight because I put on bite of salad in my mouth

Misscelestia....your mom is right: just accept it. I take it you like other veggies. Just eat those. I don't think there is anything in Atkins that says you have to eat salad. Do you like radishes, cucumbers, avocados, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, artichokes, stuff like that? You can make great salads out of those vegetables.

And, it's nice to know you have a buddy--Ali-C. Now that makes two of you in the universe. Enough to start a club...or a protest, at least.

I love veggies . All kinds but I know that gag feeling. When I was little everybody tried to get me to eat bean soup and sweet potatoes and I would gag horribly. So if you can't do don't. Do you like any veggies.

If you like cucumbers, red peppers, and green peppers try this.

chop up cukes, red and green peppers an 1/8 c. vinegar
and 1/8 c. water and a little splenda to taste.
Mix well . This is a great salad.

It's not something you will get over. see if you can try other things. Bok choy is leafy green but has a wonderful nutty flavor. People use this in a stir fry I only like it raw .

Good luck Ess
