I hate me veggies and fruits, hate em, don’t like 'em, most of the time can’t really get 'em. I may just be “mentally” allergic to 'em (hoping so on that last regard) and so explains why I never eat 'em!
My body is lucky that I give it beans and/or rice on any given day… and damn lucky if those beans are green!!! When home (which unfortunately is rarely) my Thai wife has a hell of a time getting me to eat snow peas, snap peas, green beans, mashed potatoes, carrots, apples, oranges, bananas, and/or asparagus regularly… as that is all I will actually chew and swallow if cornered by her… and I only chew and swallow those as I am definitely afraid of her… but while away, out in the field, the mice will play and rice and beans are about it (albeit they are red kidney or black beans which are fairly high on the health food index!).
What say you other meat, cheese, and egg eating brothers?
I enjoyed reading through the 2010 Prof X, What Do You Eat? Veggie Thread and definitely fall into the Prof X and bwhitwell camp:

I concur with bwhitwell and Prof X… if one is eating plenty of meat, eggs, and cheese throughout the day, eating a varied diet, your vitamin and mineral levels should be fine and one can be healthy on such a veggie lacking diet. Just in case I’m indeed a retard and missing something vital over here while working in Ass-stan I do take a few helpings of Biotest Superfood with my meals.
By the way, have you tried eating fresh vegetables/fruits in some parts of the third world? I rather take my chances drinking tap water! And when they cook 'em… well, damn the taste sucks monkey balls! I rather worry about and focus on my fiber and healthy fats/oils intake and making sure I am not eating shitty processed foods.

This is probably one of the funniest things I have ever read from Prof X! It had me laughing a good ten minutes this morning and that is damn healthy over here working in this dust bucket! Thanks brother.
Now go eat your veggies and fruits boys and girls… not!
