Eating Healthy In Social Situations

What do you do when you go out to eat? Visit family? What about business lunches? Plan ahead. Bring 1-2 avocados and/or 1-2 apples with you. Order a salad, and mix the avocados and/or apples in with it. Generally, restaurants do not serve organic food, but we have to do the best we can in each circumstance. I have found that the best approach is to intelligently avoid the situation altogether. Do something different. Business people are tired of doing the "standard business lunch" Take them to a juice bar or, where possible, a raw food restaurant (see the Raw-Food Restaurants section at the back of this book)! Take them to a park. Without food in the way, you can conduct business quickly and efficiently - this will save you the expense and time in your day.

You have the most sophisticated computer in the world between your ears - use it! Leverage your mind to figure out a way to redirect family events and business lunches to fit your dietary health habits.

My experience as a raw-foodist has taught me a wonderful lesson: The way people react to you and your diet has nothing to do with the diet itself, with other people, or with anything else; the way people react has everything to do with what is going on in your own mind! Once your mind is set right, everything else is set right.

People have thousands of preconceived notions about vegetarian diets, but no preconceived ideas about eating raw foods! So you can say it is anything you want! Eating raw fruits and vegetables makes sense to most people, but eating tofu, seitan, or millet does sound strange to the average person.

When your attitude is positive and supportive towards other people and their food choices, they will not feel threatened by you, but will feel uplifted by you. Once we change everything else changes around us.

I already know two things about you. You are an intelligent person who has a weighty problem. I know that you are intelligent because you are seeking help to solve your problem and that is always the second step to solving a problem. The first one is acknowledging that there is, in fact, a problem that needs to be solved.
