Confession #5

Our clinic ordered Indian takeout and I (Indian) was sitting with another RD (white). My plate was stacked high with butter chicken, samosas and naan. She turned to me and said how unhealthy and rich Indian food is, and how she doesn’t like it. I told her “not all Indian food is the same, and I didn’t grow up eating this type of food (pointing to my plate), which is why is why I’m enjoying it now.” But I still felt a lot of shame.
