    Seriously, is there any reason to eat vegetables?

    They're low in fat, but I'm not trying to lose weight (I'm bulking, actually). And I keep my fat between 20-25%. (Some days I have too little as it is and get as low as 18%. Veggies would make this "worse"!)

    They have vitamins, such as vitamins A, C, and E. I get plenty of these from what I eat and drink normally, and take a multivitamin on top of that.

    They have fiber, but I get plenty from oats.

    Did I miss anything?
