I don’t eat much meat, and seafood grosses me out. I’m realizing people find it rude when I barely eat at their dinner parties. What else can I do?
You can hope your hosts serve plenty of side dishes to fill your plate without anyone noticing. But chances are some snide diner will say something like, “Not having any salmon?” We can only suggest that you put on a big smile and say, “I’m great with this, thanks!” The key is to be positive about what you can eat (“Yum, these potatoes are sooo good!”) without calling attention to or turning up your nose at what you can’t. As long as you’re not being a Debbie Downer about their food, your hosts have no right to call you rude. And if you feel comfortable with the hosts, tell them your restrictions two weeks ahead of time and offer to bring the salad.
