Those biceps San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kisses after touchdowns are made by steak, eggs and absolutely nothing green. And he is set on all of America becoming hard-core carnivores too.

In an Instagram photo, Kaepernick captioned a picture of steak, eggs and fruit with, "This is lunch..... I don't eat vegetables they make you weak!"

Bugs Bunny is not impressed.

As shown by his appearance on the body issue of ESPN The Magazine, Kaepernick isn't exactly sickly because he's missing out on the health benefits of vegetables. Perhaps those vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in the green stuff on your plate is overrated.

If nothing else, Kaepernick's message won't help parents convince their kids to eat those Brussels sprouts.
