You should get a new Dr. I'm not kidding around or trying to be snarky. What she said is a very serious misconception and more than likely you will pay the price for it somehow, probably through a decreased quality of life that you fail to attribute to dietary implications.

Now MDs are not trained in nutrition so they are not experts in that field. If they choose to educate themselves on dietary issues they would have the potential, based upon their biological and physiological subject matter expertise to be more knowledgeable on the topic than the average citizen with exposure to the same information. BUT they have to really educate themselves on it. And either your Dr has not, you are misrepresenting what she said, or her ability to retain information has suddenly taken a scary nosedive. There is no such thing as "getting away with anything." You are only cheating yourself and you, in the end, pay the price for not investing financially in your health.

Wink depression meals

My mom had one pot recipes from that era from her mother. My grandmother would start a soup on Sunday on the wood stove from left over bone of one kind or another from the Sunday dinner. The soup would simmer for days and change just as often. Every day she would add whatever was left over from the dinner meal. I remember that if she had to add vegetables to it during the week, they were always fresh because of the her kitchen garden.
