One question curious omnivores ask their vegan and vegetarian compatriots is, “how on earth do you get full eating only vegetables?” If you are unfamiliar with veggie nutritional info it might seem like a challenge to make a meal out of veggies. But a bowl of beets or brussels sprouts can be surprisingly filling, especially with a dressing. Conversely, those looking to lose weight have as many options as there are colors in the rainbow for low-cal snacks.
