No, that's right, those of you who know Luke probably do not
know him to be persnickity with food (traditional three-egg omelette with toast or full-plate of oatmeal still habitual fare for breaking fast), however, vegetables during the day is quite a different story entirely.

I think he kind of likes it a little.
