Your SIL with the weird diet is coming to dinner...

Your _________________ SIL is coming to dinner. Do you go out of your way to prepare foods she will like?

1. Vegetarian

2. Vegan

3. Gluten free

4. Clean eating

5. Paleo diet

 

The only reason I ask is because my DH asked his mother if she would have vegetarian friendly foods at a recent get together. She said she would go out of her way to make sure I had some good selections. She heated up an individual vegetable Stauffer's lasagna and was so proud of herself.

I would go out of my way to make selections that would accomodate her food choices.

I would. I'm a vegetarian and I don't expect it, but I do appreciate it when it is done for my family.

That's really nice of her! I usually offer to bring my own foods-even to my own parents house. And I have done that before-brought veggie hotdogs and such. I would never expect anyone too, but it is thoughtful that they do.

No. If you're coming to my house you eat what I make. If I go to your house I'll eat what you make. The only exception would be a food allergy. Then I'd try my best.

I don't see a problem having at least one filling dish that would accomodate. If they expect a 4 course meal though...NO.

And if they think everyone else should be eating the same, and deprived of foods they like, also...NO.

I'd try, but some diets are very specific and I don't know all the rules people have to follow. If they gave me some guidance beforehand I would, but if I'm flying blind, I can't guarantee they'll be happy.
