We have a Halloween pot luck coming up and I can't figure out which approach I should take.
Abstaining from the pot luck & eating lunch alone in my office (which is my usual tactic) OR
Signing up to bring a delish paleo dish (I'm thinking a pumpkin chicken chili) and eating ONLY that, while turning down all of the food everyone else worked hard to make and bring (and shaking off the "c'mon, one little bite won't hurt you!")?
The last thing I want to do is hurt anyone's feelings or to appear standoffish or snotty about my food choices. So which is the better approach? Which is less attention-grabbing & perceptible as "rude."
For what it's worth, I'm one in an office of 40-45 people.
