Yeesss it’s a long weekend and Good Friday so no eating meat today… or any day ever again…. just kidding… kind of. We got a great question from our friend Beth, who Cat and I worked with in our studio days
I’ve been flirting with raw food and finding it very interesting. Something I was wondering was how you deal with going to dinner at friend’s/family’s houses? How do they handle your eating habits? Do you just go with the flow, eat what they make and then get back to the raw food when you’re back at home? Or are they on board with you? I think I would have a hard time getting my mother to wrap her head around raw food.
Basically yes, I go with the flow when I’m at other people’s houses while trying to make the best decisions I can. All my people know I don’t eat meat, that’s a hard rule, but it seems almost everyone these days is up for a vegan meal and it’s been getting easier and easier. And my mother has totally come around and is enjoying the benefits of eating raw foods on the regular… it can happen!
If I am concerned about there being nothing for me to eat, I bring something safe and delicious to share, then there’s no getting stuck or feeling like a picky jerk. I usually have a green smoothie before I go out so I’m not tempted by an empty stomach (good trick, try it).
And ultimatly it’s more about how you eat most of the time. Whenever good food goes into your mouth you’re that much better off.
Have a super good weekend and thanks Beth.
