:Try mixing your veges and Fruit as an omelet with scrambled eggs.
:BTS do seem to go for eggs more consistently than anything else (At least at the SFCRC).

::I'd look into the thread below about BTS diet and look at the list than Brian posted. Mine at home WILL NOT (and i've tried for a little over a year now) eat veggies or fruit without being tricked by a meat/veggie mix. They even ate around greens at one point. This being said, i still think its VERY important to get them to eat there veggies. Here are some food items that have worked well for me:
::cooked chicken, senior canned dog food, snails, hard boiled eggs, and pinkie mice.
::I used a food processor to grind cooked and chopped meat and dog food into a paste that they cant pick and choose not to eat fruits/veggies. Good fruits/veggies to try include, collard and mustard greens, kale, canteloupe, yellow squash, strawberries, etc etc. I hope ive been of some help,
::Justin
