I strongly disagree with your view on average finn diet but i understand it must feel as only truth if your in-laws and their friends all behave like that. However, i personally think that even if your whole neighborhood would eat like that, it's not your job to convince them to do otherwise. I rise my eyebrown for such a diet too, but if they like it, let them eat it. It is their own business what they eat and not eat.
Why not cook healthy and yummy vegetarian meals for yourself and set a nice example for your surroundings instead of criticism?
