How do I program my mind to like salads?

I don't prefer salads or raw vegetables at all.

Though, I know for a FACT that they are great for my body in particular because I feel the energetic qualities after I consume them and I never feel indigestion.

However, my mind rejects the food because I believe it has little to no taste. I can even feel a slight ache in my head for even considering the idea of eating a salad for instance, because I know it won't be at all as enjoyable as say, pasta or cooked vegetables, or rice. Not only that but, if I do CHOOSE to eat a salad, I don't eat enough of it because I get bored of the taste or sometimes I feel as though I would gag if I ate another bite. (As opposed to me eating say rice and beans, where I could go on for days)

Putting the possibility of making better recipes to the side, I feel a more powerful solution would be to simply program my mind to ENJOY raw vegetables so I eat more of them.

Does anyone know of any methods, techniques, rituals I can do to accomplish this?

The pain you feel is probably the yeast and other micro ogansisms in your gut sending out chemicals to punish you for eating what is bad for them and reward you for eating what is good for them, like sugar. Or even thinking about it. A thought is just an energy frequency just like a food is. So either go cold turkey and accept the withdraw symptoms from the gut beasts or ease into it as you take probiotics to change your gut flora gradually.

Ok ok very good this helps. Kind of funny that I'm being mind controlled by micro-organisms but, it helps me gain more willpower by knowing this.

I am not sure how I can choose pain over pleasure though. I did just fast for a whole week with mostly just water and a bit of herbs. When I came back I was more ravenous then ever and just avoided all salads

I was wondering about a method though, if you knew of one for either tricking my mind to liking salad OR as you said cold turkey. Because, my gut flora does not punish me for eating fruits and I find those to be very healthy for my body. I can for sure program my mind to eat just fruits and vegetables but it is not possible for me to eat only vegetables for all my meals. So I'm not sure if I can cold turkey since I'll still have to eat sugars and that will trigger a response in my gut flora.

Okay I have an idea. A few ideas actually.
Get those salads seasoned! Make them tasty! There are umpteen things you can add to a healthy salad to make it scrumptious. Are you doing that?
Dice Ciabatta bread in small pieces and lightly fry it in sesame oil, when it's cooled add it to the salad. You can do this with potato too but it's more fiddly.
Make some curried lentils (green ones, "Lentilles Vertes" or "Puy" lentils will keep their shape better after cooking.
Cold canned sweetcorn will add sweetness.
Slightly steaming fine green beans, lightly salted adds wonderful flavour. Let them cool first before adding them to the salad.
Lightly frying very tiny broccoli florets until they are slightly brown (let them cool first)
Herbs like Parsley, Coriander (if you like it) a pinch of chopped mint or Lemon Balm etc will lift the bland salad flavour.
You can even put Tahini on salads, or add toasted seeds like Sunflower or Pumpkin, or chopped toasted mixed nuts for extra protein as well as flavour.
Don't forget a garlic dressing.
Don't forget there is Tamari sauce too! And lots of other lovely sauces, Check out what they have got in a health food store.
Lastly, add some salt and pepper!

Friends, before you post recipes please read the OP that states:

The idea here is that I want to change the way I perceive raw vegetables. Raw vegetables. That's it.

I don't want to change the vegetable. I don't want to burn it alive, or smother it in spices or sauces or anything of the sort! The vegetables are fine! The vegetables are completely fine!!! It is ME who needs to change. I need to figure out a way to connect with raw vegetables so I don't NEED to hide the taste every time I want to eat a simple piece of food.

THUS I will be able to freely eat ALL good foods without WORRYING about how it will taste. If I'm in a restaurant I won't need a special preparation I can just literally order a salad. If I'm at a friend's house I will not need to request a special preparation I will just ask for a CARROT.

Do you see how much more useful this would be? Changing myself to enjoy healthy foods as opposed to changing healthy foods into something that appeases my distorted taste?

I do sort of get what you mean Rokazulu. Though I don't know why creating recipes isn't always an available option?
I always think that creating recipes with food is one of the pleasures of food. I love all sorts of food and like to make things tasty. Sure I am happy to eat a raw carrot or celery stick or plain lettuce leaves and they all taste very nice. But when you are going to have dinner it's nice to create something interesting.....isn't it?

But as far as 'programming your mind' to like simple raw foods with no embellishments, nothing added, then the answer is hunger.
Because when you are genuinely hungry everything is going to taste like nectar.
I remember being that hungry once when the smallest piece of dry plain bread tasted like a blessing. Or being in the woods and making a soup with Nettles, wild Garlic and Goose-grass.
THEN you will like salads with nothing on them.

Rokazulu, as you posted this thread in the hypnosis section of the forum, do I assume that you are interested in a possible hypnotic modification of your eating desires? This can be done - and indeed is not at all difficult for a hypnotherapist. It is a common procedure, similar in approach to hypnosis about weight loss (although of course different in nature).

If you are really serious about this issue, then all you need do is search for a hypnotherapist in your local area. I am a trained advanced hypnotist myself, but have never practised and do not offer my services (except for free to family, friends and acquaintances locally). However, I can assure you that your food desires can be modified by a hypnotist, if that is what you sincerely wish. The stronger you desire it, the easier it will be for the hypnotist to help you.

Self hypnosis is another possibility, if you think that you put yourself into a deep trance state of relaxation. There are numerous sound files available on the net (e.g. by Steve Jones, inter alia), but I am not aware of one specifically about wanting to eat vegetables and fruit rather than other foods. But of you are able to put yourself in a trance state, you could hypnotise yourself on that theme.

If self-hypnosis is not your thing, then seeking a trained hypnotist in your area is the best way forward.

Every best wish to you!
