Vegetables used to be shit food that people ate because they couldn’t get anything else. That’s why they don’t taste very good – they’re not very good. So in our fabulously wealthy modern age, people can afford to eat other stuff instead of dumb vegetables, and economies of scale even make that other stuff cheaper. But then it turns out that there were some particular nutrients that we mainly got from vegetables, and the things we replaced vegetables with are often pretty crappy for us, so veggies become the thing you’re supposed to eat, even though your body is trying to tell you not to.
