This includes the addition of spices that he is constantly told that the patrons can't stand. The ingredient in question is a rhizome called "Leola root".  Neelix adds it to everything, sweet or savory.  He claims that the root is extremely nutritious, but since it is used like ginger, his claims on the matter are ''very suspect''.  Leola root is so despised that the only time anyone even ''considers'' voluntarily eating it is when the two of them ([[Tom Paris]] and [[Harry Kim]]) are ''starving'' in an alien prison!<ref>[[VOY]] "The Chute"</ref>

He goes so far as to insist that when food is smuggled out of his kitchen because [[Seska|someone]] wanted to make a dish their way rather then his, some type of punishment is required.  He does this even though any authority on the matter is self-imposed in the first place (at least [[Chakotay]] doesn't gratify him by actually enforcing it).<ref>[[VOY]] "State of Flux"</ref>  It's understandable on a minor level that he would try to convince people that using locally available supplies is a worthwhile effort, but if something does not please the pallet of a patron (let alone your ''entire clientele''), you shouldn't force it onto them.  No, this is not the same as convincing children to eat their vegetables, as the items he insists on adding are only flavor enhancers, not items of any real nutritional value.  The impression is that if someone was allergic to something, he'd ''still'' put it in their food and make them eat it anyway.
