My mom (german) and dad (italian) cook things in butter, use lots of salt and always had junkfood around the house. I didn't know any better growing up but when I got pregnant with my 1st child I decided it was definitely time to make a change! My mom and dad don't understand it lol.. they think how they cook is fine. I want to set a better example for my kids and not to mention my tastebuds have changed from pregnancy for the better. I use cooking spray instead of butter, turkey/chicken/pork instead of ground beef or red meat, lots of fruits and veggies and sugary snacks occassionally. It's really hard when I go to their house though because they just loooove giving my kids crap food! I guess that's natural grandparenting, though....

My mom grew up vegetarian. So she cooked meat, but was not good at it. She cooked a lot of potatoes dishs, she grew up on them.
When I became an adult I stoped making potaoes for a long time. I started eating more rice.
