This is a question on my mind recently as I'm planning on bringing meals to a couple of local mothers of newborns. When you are eating paleo-style, and you have a life event which results in a lot of people bringing you meals as a supportive measure - do you make special requests to shape the meals brought to your paleo way of eating?
On one hand, it seems like looking a gift horse in the mouth if you get to the point of telling someone (probably a Standard American Diet eater) that your family eats no sugar, no grains, no industrial oils, no MSG, no trans fats, etc. On the other hand, you don't want to have a waste of food (not to mention the cook's time and efforts!) if they bring you lasagna with French bread and a cake for dessert!
My current thought for the next time that we find ourselves on the receiving end of such kindnesses is to at least say that our household doesn't eat wheat.
