    The crazy things people say

    Today I got another link from the vegan relatives: "why meat is a no-no." <sigh> Bear in mind, they ate meat for 60+ years. There's nobody as fervent as a recent convert, I guess.

    The crazy things people say

    My grandparents lived to 93 & 97, I believe in large part because Grandma cooked from scratch at every meal. A meat. A vegetable. A salad. And usually potatoes. But if a potato is the worst thing in your diet, you're probably doing all right. Some relatives (well-educated people who should understand science better than most) have embraced a hard-core, plant-only, no-oils, no-fats form of eating based on the work of some cardiologist. I keep getting their 'just watch this...' links about the evils of fats & meat. They boil a lot. And -- having always had slender builds -- they now look emaciated. The vegan relatives bought me some non-stick pans "so you can cook without oil." Did they think I was deep-frying in Crisco every night?! Seriously, I keep waiting for their hair to fall out and their skin to flake off...
