Home for a visit, and dealing with eating Paleo in a very non-Paleo (but otherwise fairly healthy) family. My family is a little skeptical (especially of the carb levels, even though I'm not VLC by ANY means) but more curious than anything else. I feel like half our conversations revolve around "so, what does the Paleo diet say about [food]?" - but it's in a very interested and curious way, not confrontational or aggressive, and they seem interested in all the reasoning behind it.
That said, they're asking me all this while enjoying their bread. I don't think I'll be making any converts any time soon (in the same house, we also have my vegan sister, my wheat/canola farmer grandfather, and my father, who has high cholesterol and is eating according to the standard recommendations for that). But they're NOT being defensive or trying to push anything on me, or making a big deal out of it when I refuse the cake/peanut butter/ice cream/ketchup. They think it's kind of neat - it's almost the same way you'd treat a relative who had a really off-the-wall but interesting job like a circus trapeze artist. Like the "I'd never do it because [xyz] but tell me all about it" attitude.
So...anyone else have some NON horror stories to share? Or relatives who were more cautiously interested than downright hostile?
