    Overall, how important are they? From what I gather they're a source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. If I take supplements for those things, should I even bother with vegetables? Can you do this? Or am I just poorly misguided?

    Edit - For those who just read the title and then posted about how they like vegetables.... Here's the point of this thread.

    I don't eat a lot of vegetables, well the good ones anyway, and because of this I would like to know what I'm missing out on not eating them. To my knowledge I am just missing out of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. As I would rather not have to start eating more vegetables, it would be easier to just take vitamins and a fiber supplement. Now this is were the responses come in. Post any unforeseen benefits to eating vegetables, ones that can not be aquired by taking supplements. I don't want "they're good for you" bullshit. Post info why you can or can't do what I'm looking to do. I'd rather the long story.

    i like broccoli and peas, but sometimes when i get a little bored i will throw some peppers into the mix. My favorite peas are snow peas because they have a robust taste in my mouth. I like brocolli with carrots, but i dont know if carrots are vegetables and i dont know how to talk about whatever a carrot is (i think its a root). If i were a vegetable i would hope to be a head of lettuce, because it has layers, which would be similar to humans and our feelings, plus in a cup of lettuce there is very few calories, which means it isnt very dense, kind of like me, so me and lettuce are alot alike

    im not sure people need to "like" vegetables to eat them, i eat vegetables mainly for their function (fiber, antioxidents etc) most are very palatable. also vitamins coming from the actual food itself are much better than just taking supplements.

    Vegetables, they are what food eats

    ...honestly I would like to eat more fruit and veggies but lord knows what's growing in the fridge I share in this house. Damn thing is from the 80s, coming apart, and I'm pretty sure the only thing that will clean it is a stick of dynamite

    A lot of things are 'common sense' and a lot of things once were. I thought that was common sense.
