How do you deal with these?
As a long time veggie before transitioning to raw 6 months ago I found it easy to go out/eat with people, vegetarianism is fairly much accepted now. Not that I really care if my lifestyle is or isnt accepted. However when it comes to family gatherings/occasions I feel sometimes I am segregated or cannot go because of there being food in the situation.
Most people like to go to a restaurant or have a party for celebrations
There isnt a polite way to say, “I am not eating your food, vegetarian or otherwise its dead and of no value to my insides I would rather not eat.. but thanks anyways!”
I have my mothers birthday coming up as well as my own shortly.. its very hard not to upset close family especially. My mothers reaction was ” do you have to ruin my night with your food habits”... very tricky
Anyways enough rambling
