LMAO! That's sort of how I see it too.I look to veggies to keep my meat company.
While I don't believe veggies are absolutely necessary, they are a good way to get some variety. I enjoy veggies and trying new ones. Daikon, bok choy, kohlrabi... other unusual looking things.
Some of my favorites, besides the above three, are brussels sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus, and turnips. Actually I like pretty much all veggies. To know me 3 years ago, you'd be surprised if I'd ever touch a veggie, but now I love 'em.
