I’m far from a vegetarian, but damn, do I love eating my veggies. I love them so much that I also love yelling at others to eat their veggies. And then promptly eating their veggies when they’re too slow to comply.

But I also travel a lot, which makes eating the rainbow at a reasonable price nearly impossible. Vegetables are afterthoughts at fast food chains, limited at many fast casual chains and overpriced at nice restaurants, where a side of three scraggly florets as pathetic as weeds in a wintertime garden costs $8. Pathetic. When gadding about, the salads are sad—unless you’ve got a Chopt nearby.
