Lucy was chowing down green peppers when i first got her but lately she will not touch them one bit? What would cause her to all of a sudden not like them?

Like most animals, guinea pigs have a drive to seek out variety in their diet. They will most eagerly eat food they haven't seen for a while, and can avoid foods they have seen a lot of. Swap peppers for something else for a week, and she will probably become keen on them again.

Guinea pigs are like humans - they can go off something they couldn't get enough of at first!

Just try to vary your veg and if your piggies go off something leave it out for a bit and then serve it again after a couple of weeks.

buddy will eat anything and everything and never get tired of anything lol.. Lucy stopped eating carrots and peppers. She loves GRASS, Lettuce and apple, I have tried brocoli and she has eaten a lil bit but that doesnt really do much for her i guess. I'm not sure what else I could try that she would like.
