How do you eat with friends/strangers without being rude - especially if someone made food for you?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created September 16, 2011 at 2:35 PM

If there is hardly any paleo-friendly food available when eating with friends/strangers, what do you eat, and what do you say to your them?

(I'm not allergic to grain, refined sugar, or legumes. I just try to not eat them.)

I'm "lucky" because eating grains and dairy makes me feel like shiz for real, so I can just explain to them that I can't eat what they're serving. I always make a big deal out of how I wish I could because it looks/smells soooooo good and it usually passes pretty well. And if there really aren't any 'safe' options for me, I eat the 'safest', which, for me, means avoiding dairy and gluten like the plague and sucking it up if there's another difficult-to-digest grain and/or a veggie that's covered in something less than natural. They usually end up feeling worse about the situation than I do ;-p

This. Exactly. If I know it will make me feel not-so-great I won't overload my plate, but I will never turn down another person's kindness when they've gone out of their way to do so. That being said, it's fortunate that I don't have to worry about any of my friends or family making me a special dinner of deep-fried Snickers.

Honestly, it's the people who "labor for hours" that are the worst (best-intentionied, but worst situations for me). They proudly insist "I made this just for you" and they generally have failed one way or another in making it gluten-free. Or it's some elaborate gluten-free dish made with nuts or beans or something else I really can't digest. It breaks my heart to tell them. That's why I really prefer they just make whatever they were going to make and let me choose whether to eat or not eat it.

You don't have to 'gorge' to do damage if it's full of sugar and you have blood sugar issues, or it has gluten and you're intolerant. It's not as simple as "just have one small helping."

"Thank you so much. The food looks amazing. Unfortunately I've recently discovered I have some food sensitivities and really have to be careful about what I eat." I carry a can of sardines in my bag at all times. Almost everyone serves veggies of some sort or have lettuce to dump them onto. I bring food I can eat with me whenever I can. If it's a once in a while thing I would eat whatever they served as long as it wasn't gluten but me. It you are getting together regularly then you need to talk to them some more and come up with a plan so you can eat with them and feel comfortable.

I used to eat what my friends were having so as not to offend or be rude - and pay for it later.

Now I'm proud of my healthy stance and I refuse to feel obliged to eat something I don't want to eat. I explain to friends now why I eat the way I do, and I don't care if they approve or not. Most friends are really interested when I explain

I'm almost always able to find something to eat; there's normally some kind of meat option.

Often people are so wrapped up in what they are eating - I don't think they even notice what isn't on my plate.

Eating proffered junk food is a case-by-case determination for me.

If it's just my girlfriend wanting to stop and eat fast food on the way home, or a routine cookout with friends, I don't feel bad about abstaining. If people can't deal with that level of relatively innocuous eccentricity without being buttholes about it, that's their problem.

If someone has gone out of their way to make me something special, e.g., girlfriend's family making us a dinner and dessert when we visit, etc., then I graciously eat it and am grateful to do so. To me, honoring other people's genuinely kind gestures is as much a part of being a functioning human as any metabolic factor. So if someone's sweet little old grandma makes us a special cake when we visit, I smile and eat the damned cake, probably with ice cream.

I've unfortunately learned the hard way, because I get very sick. After getting over a severe case of what appears to be food poisioning last month (from what I thought was relatively paleo, non allergic foods for me someone made for me), I will no longer eat what they serve...period. I almost ended up in the hospital, it was pretty bad.

I let them know ahead of time that I will bring a plate to share (usually a fish dish with lots of veggies)...I have lots of food allergies and I dont expect people to be able to cook for me nor understand....most really dont even after explaining it anyways.

In some cultures its odd to bring a plate and probably rude, but its just not worth it. The other option is to eat before you go and don't eat there. That seems just as odd to them, so not much difference.

You have to do whats right for you especially if you are paying the price later.

good luck!!

"Food allergies" covers a vast amount of stuff within the SAD for probably most eaters, so that answer puts you on solid ground. However, for most people food allergies connote something askew in the eater and his physiology, rather than something askew in the food, and I personally hesitate at having to pathologize myself to ensure the comfort level of other people. I think my own inclination would be to beg off with "not particularly hungry" or "already ate." Both can be tricky if the reason for getting together is to have a meal and the chosen venue is Carb City Diner. In which case, yone's options are to lobby for a paleo-friendly venue, without, of course, mentioning anything about paleo. Red Lobster, great for seafood. Steak houses are everywhere. At the end of the day, the most difficult questions will demand reckoning: Why in he'll am I socializing with vegans?"

Normally I would just tell everyone what for and eat paleo (how sad I am that my best friend is a vegan!). The only exception to the rule for me is if I am travelling in a third-world or poor country and have been invited in by a family who has generously and lovingly made a meal to share with me despite their impoverished situation - then I really just shut up and eat. This has happened to me in Nepal a few times.

Just tell them as is, you want to avoid these things to feel better. Vegan people should understand that you have different needs. I often get some comments from friends that are eating the "normal" diet that I should live a little and have some "normal" food! I tell them that I have never been so alive and kicking and never felt so good and happy since I started eating Paleo ..... and the truth is they see it!!

The best I've come up with to avoid being rude is food allergies. It's not a lie as I really don't do well with gluten, but it seems to be the most innocuous way for any paleo eater to avoid eating certain foods that most people consider normal or healthy, without offending.

If someone made food for me specifically, and they didn't know my eating habits, and I'm not allergic/going to get sick from it, then I will eat whatever portion I'm comfortable with.

If someone made food for a group and labored over it for hours and didn't know about me the same applies.

If someone made something for a group and it was easy/routine then I pass. Explain it however you want, but I don't mind gently and respectfully hurting people's feelings to set a good example.

If someone knows about my eating habits and makes stuff anyway with no regard, then I have no problem respectfully declining.

In most cases you'll end up talking about Paleo unless you just eat without hesitation. Whether that means it's going to be a big ordeal is usually up to you.

I am 100% strict when it comes to eating a gluten free diet, but let everything else slide for special occasions such as eating out. It doesn't bother me one bit to request GF food when I am eating in a restaurant because after all I am paying them for a service.

However I absolutely hate it when we are invited to another person's house for dinner. I find it socially embarrassing to let the host know about my dietary restriction, in particular when it is a friend of my husband. I generally say what I can't eat, ie wheat, rye, barley, oats, soy sauce etc, but follow that up immediately with 'but I can eat meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, rice, dairy'.

BTW what exactly do people expect me to say when they ask the question 'what happens if I eat gluten'????

I had a huge lunch I'll just order a salad etc."

I don't plan to eat with other people when I am being strict with my food. I've spent enough time around people who talk more than is interesting about their diets; I don't wish to be boring and pedantic, and I find that usually other people care a lot less about what I am eating or not eating than I do. So I will either say nothing and order a non-sharing thing that I do eat.

If someone has put effort into cooking something special for me then I will eat it. This is a rare case, and the social and community aspects of eating are more important to me than my food preferences are.

Ah, those are totally excuses I used to have when I had an eating disorder, kind of creeps me out.

Not eating what the host serves is the height of rudeness. Unless it is a life-threatening food allergy, your finickiness when it comes to food should be set aside when dining as a guest.

Don't say anything and eat what you can. I think it's detrimental to say "oh, this looks great BUT" because people view that as you being a snob about what they put a lot of effort into. If people notice you aren't taking certain things and you don't broadcast why, it'd be rude of them to ask. If they actually ASK, then feel free to be honest, but mostly people just keep their questions to themselves.

I handle this often with business dining, and rarely does anyone say "Why aren't you eating bread? Come to the dark side!"

Since I'm finally beginning to understand just how dangerous it is for me to eat wheat, I will just explain that even if it means I pass on most of the food. Only someone who wishes me ill would expect me to do otherwise. After all, if someone is allergic to peanuts--or a sincerely committed vegetarian or vegan--no one expects them to eat foods that are dangerous/abhorrent to them.

All of my friends and family know my situation anyhow, so there's no awkwardness in selecting and choosing (or bringing a few items in my purse.)

Otherwise, in a more casual social situation I may choose to splurge on a neolithic treat or stick to what fits my normal eating pattern and it shouldn't be an issue either way if I'm kind and open about my reasons. If you gush about how beautiful everything looks and smells and bemoan your weaknesses, there aren't that many hostesses who'll take insult. And the ones who would aren't the kind of person I want to hang around with anyhow.

Most of my dear friends know that I eat a certain way and always accommodate me. If I'm ordering at a restaurant, I say that I have a food allergy.

I explain that I don't eat grains, beans, legumes, dairy or sugar. I ask about cooking oils as well. It may seem obnoxious to others, but I don't think its rude. My body is healthier without those ingredients, why would I jeopardize my health to appease others?

"Please forgive me but I'm on an extremely strange diet."

This makes it clear that you are not implicitly criticizing them. It also makes your food choices intriguing, inviting them to ask about your diet.

I focus on the social aspects of the conversation. I'll often take small amounts of the safest foods being offered, then spend my time contributing to the conversation, and "pack up" the food to take with when it's time to go... If they ask "Aren't you hungry?", I'll usually say "Well, I've become a very slow eater, and I was enjoying the conversation so much I forgot to stop to eat!" -- then I take my "to go" food and leave...

...if the food is stuff I can't or don't usually eat, I pass it along to someone who can and does eat it, or I toss it (and if I know I'm going to have to toss it, I choose what I put on my plate very carefully, so as little as possible is wasted).

If I go out with someone often, they know my preferences, and try to either prepare foods that they know I'll be able to enjoy too, or we select places to eat where it's easy to find something I can eat on the menu. Even McDonalds has stuff on the menu that one can eat in a pinch (ex.; double hamburger and a side salad-- remove the bun, crumble the hamburger over the salad, and it's a decent meal.)

You reply made me go check out Mcdonald's ingredients list. I would have never guessed that the burgers were 100% beef. I think all that chicken nugget controversy has damaged me beyond repair.

I tell my friends and family that my stomach has been sensitive lately and that I'm afraid to eat anything that my body is not used to. They seem very sympathetic about it and the truth is, I'm not lying. I get a bad case of diarrhea if I eat anything that's not paleo friendly.

Yeah I claim food allergies as well. Just say you have celiac disease or something like that.

I carry a special candle in my pocket when I go out. If I see some "bad" foods that I know I'm going to pay for later, I just head to the bathroom and melt the candle right quick and drink the wax slowly. I am celiac and I find that I can still eat breads and get very little discomfort afterwards.

As an alternative you can drink a cup or two of Calomel if you can find it. If you can't stand the wax or it makes you gag you can easily drink a 8 ounces of castor oil/activated charcoal mixture. This will prevent any offending non paleo items from permeating your intestines. To clean out Calomel and or some exlax.

Hope this helps!!!

Inducing vomiting and diarrhea over some food you had the choice to avoid is a bad, unhealthy practice.

You are kidding, right, I thought the candle eating was going to be the kookiest part of this...2 oz. of castor oil, much less 8 oz., and/or a large amount of activated charcoal is going to result in immediate and long lasting vomiting and explosive diarrhea. Please no one do this.
