How many times do you go out or pop over to a friend’s house and it’s there? You know, that food that you just can’t have. Maybe you’re allergic? Or it’s just some that you just don’t have as part of your diet. Once it’s on your plate, it can be a little tricky to get out of eating it without sounding like a track on repeat, “Well I’m vegan and I don’t eat….,” “No bacon is still meat.” “I’m sorry. I can’t just pick off the chunks of chicken.”
Let’s face it people are touchy about their food and making the chef or cook angry is the last thing that you want to do.
Our friends at Yummy Plants, a great site that helps you explore plant based life, have developed a cool online tool that might be able to get you through those tougher eating moments. They just launched a “Things I Don’t Eat” online tool that can save you the drama (Well, some of it at least). It’s simple. Just log on to Yummy Plants, create your personal “Things I Don’t Eat” list and send it to your friends and family as a link. Like magic, everyone knows ahead of time about your dietary needs and restrictions. You can also let them know about all of the wonderful foods that you do eat too with the Favorite Foods list!
