    Okay, well Mark is the creator of the Primal Blueprint which is what this forum is about so to me what he says hold a lot of weight. Here is another article about why we need vegetables and this one has a ton of studies to back it up.

    Just blowing the whistle on the pseudo-science. All the poorly-absorbed nutrients stored in the flesh of plants can better be obtained through animal products and the parts of plants that WANT to be eaten. That means berries and fruits, things with seeds designed to pass through the gut which intend to make themselves beneficial to the eater. Broccoli stalks and similar play no such games, and are very bad to eat (poorly digested, irritating, cause goiters, etc.) raw, and only marginally good cooked. Better than starving, but rather the opposite of necessary.

    Ah, there’s no need to be so hard lined about it, though . Many plants have excellent medicinal qualities that aren’t found in fruits and meats. Oregon grape root and garlic have amazing antibacterial properties that kill things medicinal antibiotics can’t (like Group B Strep). Onions and garlic also have a great effect on digestion. As for leaves: Dandelion and nettle are great diuretics as well as store houses of vitamins. Red raspberry leaf helps with labor pains and speeding up the second stage of labor. Don’t forget about the vitamin K in kale, nettle, etc. Sure, these can be found in meats, but they are very bioavailable in leafy greens. Even cats eat grass…

    One could probably get by quite well without them. People live many years lacking major nutrients (those people who eat nothing but potatoes or chicken nuggets, etc). They're bodies create them. When we eat the whole animal, we get a lot of those veggies in their intestines, etc. Fruits also contain a lot of the same nutrients. But, I do think veggies have their place, if not every day for everyone, then at least medicinally. You're the one telling me to eat hoards of kale before we go to the hospital to give birth so they don't have to give a vitamin K shot...

    My 2 cents: I only use veggies for color, aesthetic and taste. 3/4 of my veggies are actually fruits used as veggies. Real veggies ? mmm, not a big priority, especially leafy greens, I don't see much point eating them even though I don't mind a green salad once in a while like the salade nicoise, really like that one
