If he will eat stir fry, you can make a simple stir fry and lay it on a bed of shredded raw cabbage or shredded raw baby spinach. It isn't salad but it is a way for him to eat better and still have meat in his diet. and It taste great!

The man is an adult. If he doesn't wish to change his eating habits after his doctor has recommended he do so or you have tried to include more veggies, well, that is his choice. I would probably have a conversation with him trying to find out why he won't eat veggies or why he won't try veggies. I would not engage in arguments, games, bribes, or any other ploys. Ir you are the meal planner and grocery shopper, you could try going "no meat" a couple of nights a week. If he doesn't like what you make, he could always make his own meal.

I think because you love and care for your husband and you want him to be healthy....your best option is just to sneak stuff in his foods that wont alter the flavor in a major way. (greens in lasagna is an easy one). Some people just do not like certain foods, for instance, I dont care how healthy someone might say sauerkraut is, I probably make a childish face when it's stuck in front of me! best of luck!

Jerry Seinfeld's wife has some great cookbooks and recipes for sneaking veggies into kids' meals. I've seen her on various talk shows, and her recipes sound decent. http://www.amazon.com/Deceptively-De...mm_kin_title_0

That said, I have to agree with others, your DH is an adult, and as such has a right to eat whatever he wants. If what you cooked and served isn't what he wants, then he has the right to find something else.

I've been married forever and eat all the salad and greens I want. I let my husband choose whatever he wants to have on his plate and rarely is it a salad or something green. Leave the guy alone.

You can lead a horse to water...but you can't make it drink.

There are foods I won't eat (bananas come to mind immediately). If my doctor told me to eat a banana / day, I'd flat out not do it. No one would be able to trick me into eating raw bananas (I can do banana bread). Bananas make me retch. I know bananas are a great source of potassium--but there's no way bananas are ever going to be part of my daily diet unless my sense of smell, taste, and perception of texture change.

+1

I wouldn't touch a banana with a ten foot pole

I say let the man make his own choices. Make salad for the table and let him decide if he wants to have some.
