30 Bananas a Day!

I used to happily eat tons of salad but I would put olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper on them . Now when I eat a salad without the dressing it is just bleck! I can barely eat it. I've tried a few raw dressings like mango and tomato, tahini and lemon, corn and tomato, avocado, tomato, and cilantro... but nothing seems to satisfy. I know I need the greens...so my question is: Does it get better? Will my taste buds come to enjoy such a plain salad?

What's in most salad dressings that gives them flavor? Oil, sugar, vinegar salt, pepper and spices?

Get the oils from avocados and nuts. Use lemon instead of vinegar, add fresh fruits for the sweetness and a few spices and pepper to taste. Use kale and spinach instead of lettuce for the salt. I also load my salads with cilantro and parsley.

Just make sure you save your avocados and nuts for your salad. That way you can still keep your daily fats at 10%.

 

Thats starting to sound yummy! Thanks. 

Definitly! Fruity-rolls are really delicious... My favourite is banana in a large leaf of spinach.

Wow...I believe it. 

I have addictive tendencies (maybe most people do?) and the way I have beat the addictions is to "starve them". If you don't feed the monster, it dies. Sometimes really slowly though...

Thank you so much for posting this question. I have the same problem. I started VCRV diet yesterday. When it came to dinner and the salad, I had to make myself to eat it. It was horrible. I thought I messed up the recipe of the dressing. For now, the sweet dressiong and the romain lettuce; simply these two do not go together, at least my body does not want to appreciate the combination. Hopefully, it gets better with time.

 

Keep an eye on this post...I think there has been great info and advice. 

Sounds good. I have all the ingredients too :)

I did it...and it IS good :)

It's still difficult to eat the whole salad. That plate is actually a large oval serving plate (you just can't tell in the photo). 

I find that it's a matter of finding not only the right type of green, but also the right brand and quality.  I've been trying to get into greens for several years, and it was never natural or very enjoyable for me to eat large quantities.  Been trying all sorts of lettuces, spinach, celery, regular kale, and all sorts of stuff, and most of the time it's not something I look forward to. But sometimes you can find something that just happens to be really good quality and it tastes good to you.  Lately, for example, I found a store that carries PureVeg organic greens, and I've been literally craving their lacinato kale.  I've never craved greens before.  That particular type and brand just really jives with me right now, so that's the only green I'm eating right now, and eating plenty of it.  Everything else still seems unappealing to me.  I hope that you find something that jives with you too :)

Today I took a bite of dandelion greens and they were actually pretty good...until I swallowed them...the las bit was mighty bitter. 

That's great that you have found something you like! Hopefully I will too :)
