But I'm A Foodie! Now What?
Friday night dinner out at the latest "it" restaurant. Sunday brunch with best friends. Food box subscriptions to exotic ingredients. Now I'm asking you to give that all up? No!
If you are a foodie at heart, I can see how it would be tempting to show off a new recipe (or twenty) at this year's Thanksgiving, etc. What Everyone Eats Different Food is asking for is a bit of mindfulness instead.
If you know a child with dietary restrictions is attending your holiday celebration, consider saving your passion for food for another day. Consider a simple meal with options for all guests. If this is hard to do, ask guests to send you recipes to favorites they can eat. This will allow you to try your hand at a new recipe!
Save your foodie enthusiasm for a time when all guests can enjoy. Host foodie dinner nights with adult friends who are able to fully enjoy and appreciate your passion with you. I know the last thing you want to do is make a child feel left out on a holiday or birthday celebration. Making this shift is a win-win for everyone!
