how do i convince my parents that eggs arent bad for me
not that it matters that much because im only home for a few weeks, but it will be an intolerable few weeks
i mean jeez, today i ate 3 eggs for breakfast w/broccoli and tomatoes. lunch was salad with tuna and avocado. had a single fried egg as a snack in later afternoon. that seems like a pretty healthy day dont you think?
my mom's all like, you're going to DIE because you eat so many eggs! blah blah blah
i mean really, my brother ate freaking processed frozen chicken and cheese taquitos for lunch and they don't say anything (well, other than, "its okay, he is younger"... he's almost 19 i'm 22, and i think in large part because he is thin as a rail and i have a bit of belly chub)
but honestly, i spend most of the year at school away from them and control my own diet, and next year i have a job lined up in another state, so it's not an issue most of the time, but it would be nice to have them at the very least be accepting of what i choose to put into MY body (supportive would be nice, but unlikely)
anyone have like a good sciency article... like from NEJM or something? (dad's a doctor, things like that are things he will trust)
or i dont know, other ideas?
my dad makes some indian style scrambled eggs and i'm like, what oil are you using? and it's canola, and i say you should use ghee (of which we keep lots around, being indian and all), it'll taste better. and then they do the whole !!! SATURATED FAT !!! thing. and i'm saying how canola oil is bad, use olive oil at least, and they tell me canola oil is the most healthy oil, it is unsaturated fat!
i really do not know what to do
or what to say that won't make me look like, as they say, i just read some random thing on the internet and believed it
this is just ridiculous
