Yea, my family is that way too. The Idea is if you don't eat three meals a day -- you die!!
In my view its just ignorance.
Having a conclusion about something without investigation fits into the zone of ignorance.
But thats the way it is.
A little tip on being able to eat a good amount of uncooked vegetables. --
Get some kind of a food chopper.
I found one on top of an Oster blender that works great.
When I decided that I needed to eat a large amount of organic uncooked vegetables, I thought, - thats too much chewing.
So I came up with the chopper Idea
You just throw in what you want, chop it up to your desired coarseness or fineness, and add some oils and healthy salad dressing.
Makes a great meal.
Its good to hear of someone becoming healthy on their own!!
