First of all, people go through moody periods, especially during puberty / adolescence, and isn't necessarily related to food in the first place.
I can't see the argument for eating dairy / eggs for health, but her point of view is further damaged because she's talking about apple pie - not a health food at all.
But, to try to mend the situation, I don't know what else to say beyond what others have said. Be positive about the situation, help her with cooking and washing up and everything else, so that there is no ammunition for her to use.
To try to convince her of the healthiness of veganism, perhaps show her some of the profiles from this website, of people who you think she would be impressed by.
Yeah, I showed her some of the profiles but she said that it is healthy when you're finished growing but while you're still growing it isn't a sufficient diet. Also something that doesn't help is that my sister (a year younger than me and former vegen now vegetarian just told my mother about how Soy letchin or something causes espergous syndrome and what not and how soy in general 'attacks the brain'. the article apparently went on to talk about how soy letchin puts the body in a state of ketosis and makes you burn 80% of your fat stores instead of the normal 20% and that this is extremely dangerous for the human body. kidney problems were also linked to soy letchin and soy in general. She then also showed my mother an article which spoke about how tofu can be detrimental for mens health. I think my sister has encouraged my mother which I am really pissed about! Mabye I will go onto a soy free vegan diet soon if that will settle the dispute once and for all.
Bottom line now, I have figured out that my mother and sister just don't want me to be vegan
