I just found out the menu for Easter lunch: lasagna and salad. What's worse, I've been asked if I'd make this mushroom lasagna I used to make back in the day. Not only does that thought of making lasagna make me sick, but now I'm trying to figure out what do eat. On a side note, I'm frustrated that my husband (who hasn't fully embraced paleo yet) will be eating all that pasta!
The event is not at my house... I'm thinking of eating beforehand and/or taking a snack with me, in case I get hungry.
I need help dealing with:
How to address my food choices (and why I won't be eating the main course). Usually I get away with eating whatever protein is there. It will be obvious I'm avoiding it. There seems to be a fine line between sharing what I'm doing and making people feel bad for their choices (if that makes sense).
I was thinking about bringing a side of protein and veggies for everyone, but cooking for 12 would definitely strain my budget.
Has anyone been asked to buy/prepare food they no longer eat? Did you do it, etc?
Thanks in advance for your input!
