Map Turtle not Eating Veggies?

Hi everyone! I recently rescued a Northern Map Turtle. She had been left in someone's house after they moved away. She was given to a pet store, but they couldn't sell her because she was only 3 inches, so they gave her to me. I have noticed that her back left leg does not work as well as her right and that her growth seems a bit stunted and has a chip out of her lower jaw. She eats fine, for the most part, like pellets, shrimp, mealworms, and carrots. However, she refuses to eat any greens or cuttings. I know map turtles are more carnivorous, but she hasn't touched them! How can I entice her to eat them?
