Today I bring a question to all the vegans reading: what do you do when you have to go places where everyone is eating, and there’s nothing there for you?
I’m not really talking about restaurants- I’m talking places where there’s no one there that can make you an alternative.
Where I work, it is common to celebrate for lots of reasons, and in my position, it’s important that I be there during those times. When it’s a party for someone and all they’re serving is ice cream cake, that’s fine, because I just don’t eat it. There’s usually several other people who also won’t, for various reasons. But it gets a little trickier when these times use up a normal meal time.
You can always bring a Lärabar, or something like it. My problem with that is that I have a fairly unhealthy relationship with food. I tend to think of food as something to be enjoyed, not as fuel. I don’t mind something like that when it’s just once in a while, but what about when things like that happen often? Or your whole day will be taken up like that?
So readers, this question is for you- can’t wait to hear your comments!
