Some people should educate themselves before they say stupid things like:
"fat soluble vitamins can only be absorbed by the body when they are eaten with fat. Olive oil doesn't just taste good, it is also really healthy and will make sure that all the important vitamins are absorbed correctly" - one of my teachers, yesterday
"you know, you will get heart disease if you eat that amount of bananas. That's just waaaay too much potassium. WHAT, you eat bananas EVERY DAY?? OMG! You will end up just like my neighbor! She ate raw food for like 3 months and also lots of bananas, she ended up being hospitalized. Don't say I didn't warn you!" - classmate and smartass-nutritionist-health advisor-wannabe, today
ARGH! It makes me want to scream sometimes... Instead, I just nod, roll my eyes behind their back and smile. I tried discussing with them, how a vegan lifestyle is healthier than a "I am hungry and am eating everything in sight" lifestyle. Result: I am the class weirdo. People looove making fun of me. It doesn't bother me though. It is actually really entertaining sometimes what bulls*** they come up with. Though you'd think that a college teacher would know better... Then again, nothing really surprises me anymore!
