I'm not sure if people think of the super-sugary sweet potato casseroles, or what, but I've actually had people tell me sweet potatoes are processed and loaded with sugar.
I've had people argue with me that beans have more protein than salmon and more fiber than veggies.
I have a raw vegan* friend who posts things about figs, spinach, romaine and kale being high protein foods. Sure, those are all pretty good foods, but high protein? no...
Knifegill said it well earlier this year:
They ask, I tell them, and they're sure it would never work for them. It doesn't seem to ultimately matter how the information is presented. Next time I think it'll go like this:
Well, I went to mount Olympus and duct taped two unicorns together to double their magic, and rode their magic bodies for forty days and forty nights. When I got off, I looked like this. It's great!
*I actually have very little issue with RAW vegan - no soy, no wheat, only soaked legumes - I can eat almost all the stuff at their house guilt free, I just need to supplement protein (and sometimes add a few spoonfuls of the coconut oil they keep in the kitchen!). I essentially eat like a raw vegan PLUS well-sourced meat, fish, eggs, and occasional dairy (and I don't do the long-process substitute foods like cashew cheese, etc)
