I have seen posts asking about serving sad eaters and what to bring to functions, etc. Today I had an old friend over whom I hadn't seen in about 15 years (Facebook is great.) He and his girlfriend are sad, as is my boyfriend, although he eats raw whenever we eat together. I don't like to push raw food as the only option on my guests, I want them to come over and enjoy themselves. What I like to do is make enough raw food so that it isn't obvious that I am accomodating them and not myself. It seems to make others uncomfortable when they are eating these big meals and I am happily eating salad, My family always worries that I am not eating enough! Today I made a spread that kept everyone happy and didn't scream out the differences in our diets. I don't think they even realized that most of what they had was raw. I made: mango/ pineapple salsa, pico de gallo with raw corn, guacamole, jicama fries, lettuce leaves for dipping, and chips for them, to start with. While everyone was munching on that, my boyfriend grilled some meat for them outside and I made a salad from my first lettuce of the season dressed in evoo and lime. I served fresh limeade to drink. For dessert I cut up a watermelon. It was nice because it wasn't like they were trying raw food, etc. It was just a meal that everyone could enjoy without anyone "crossing over" to the other side, even though most of it was raw!
