Converts on the way?

I've never been much of a believer in active missionizing. I rarely find it to be effective or permanent to argue people into particular behavior. Instead, I believe in visibly living my values—if someone likes what they see, they will ask. Then it comes from them.
Last night I made raw pad thai, date nut torte and mock salmon pate (all from Alissa's book). My fiancé was blown away! He kept asking if it would be ok if he took more? He didn't want to leave me without food. He also said that if I never cooked for him again and just made food like this, he would be happy. Sweet!
Also my mom is curious. She keeps worrying about portion control and counting points (she has been doing weight watchers for years and years). One thing that helped was that we figured out how many points were in the entire batch of mock salmon pate, she was able to see that even if she ate the whole thing it would not be so many points...
