Top 5 Ways to Not Offend Your Non-Veggie Host


Posted by C.L. R.

Just because you're a veggie doesn't mean you have to ruin the dinner party for everyone else. Here are some sure-fire lies to prevent you from putting your foot (or some animal's) in your mouth. 1. "Ooh, that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. Yeah, I'm having some allergy tests. I think it's meat. Bummer." 2. "Wow, that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. I've been having some heart trouble. No biggie, but my doctor is not allowing me to eat red meat." 3. "Gosh, that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. My stomach's been upset. I think I should eat light tonight." 4. "Gee, that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. I'm having some dental work done this week and the dentist said to stay away from meat." 5. "Bloody hell, that looks amazing. Sorry, I can't have any. I took too many iron pills and the doctor is demanding I avoid red meat. Shoot."

I just tell people the truth. "That smells so awesome, but I'm a vegetarian." then I go on about how good all the veg-friendly food is and how it's filled me up. Even if it wasn't enough, or the one veggie dish is something I hate, I can always have something at home. If you're going to tell a white lie don't think it should be about your lifestyle. Host is bound to find out anyway and wonder why you lied.
