How does everyone deal with resistive family members?
I've been trying to get my family to understand the core principles of the PB but it gets harder and harder every night to eat dinner with them. It's gotten to the point where I have to make myself a completely different meal just so that I can stay primal. For example, tonight, my dad wanted to make breakfast for dinner. That means pancakes. Despite us having almond, coconut, and hazelnut flour at home, he goes and uses wheat flour. Now, it doesn't necessarily affect me because I didn't have any but my dad is worried about diabetes and heart disease and my mom and sister are overweight. I'm really trying to help them but, every night, I get so frustrated with them that I have to stop what I'm doing and take some deep breaths.
Now my mom is on a mini crusade to have stuffing with bread in it for Thanksgiving after I mentioned an alternative that we could make. It really is getting harder and harder for me because they don't want to change. They're fully supportive of me it seems but not enough to try it themselves (despite my weight loss, muscle gain, and increased health).
So, do you have any suggestions on how I should handle this? I know Mark has made a few blog posts about how to share the PB with other people but it seems like none of the logic is working with my family. I love my family and I'm just trying to make their lives better.
Luckily, I'm moving back to school in January so, hopefully, I don't have to deal with too much more of my frustration soon.
