I don’t want to alienate anyone with my eating habits, but I don’t want to feel like I keep it a secret either. My sister has been vegan for years and my mother is part of a food program that requires her to measure and weigh pre-approved food at every meal. I know my family will be flexible with my food needs, and as accommodating as they know how to be. Still, I don’t want my raw diet to come across to my friends and family like a chore or some freaky ritual thing.
Any suggestions for how to talk about it with people in a positive and affirming way? What do you say when you have non-raw company over to eat and they want you to try their food? What do you do if people start treating it like you have some special ‘condition’?
Just looking for some ideas and support. Thanks in advance!
