BTS Feeding Question

I acquired a sub-adult BTS about 3 weeks ago. It is very active and seems very healthy. I have not been successful with feeding at all, however. Here are things I've tried that it has completely ignored:

Frozen mixed veggies, kale, romaine, collard greens, orange, banana, mango, waxworms, mealworms. The store I purchased it from was only feeding it science diet canned cat food (which I know is bad). I've tried that and it has been ignored as well.

The only thing I have had success with is hard-boiled egg whites. It loves them! I don't feel it is a habitat or heating issue. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tim
