I have used Pam’s technique here many times! Probably more than any other. It’s true, they won’t like it. Its casual and funny. I also don’t talk about politics and religion carelessly. I like the cooked food intolerant method! That’s a new one to me!
Here is a different view. Food has always been a way for people to come together. We find it common and therefore easy to talk about. So when these people, these aquaintances, ask us about our food, are they looking to pick on us, or are they finding an excuse to talk to us, to start a relaxing conversation? They’ll forget about it in about 15 seconds, but they will feel that they had some interaction. Isn’t it a compliment? I mean, if I find someone repulsive, which is rare, I really don’t care what they are eating! I am not curious about what they are holding. I ignore that person. If I want to be friends, or more, with someone I will use any excuse to talk to them. If I see it this way I can just say, “Its sprouted sunflower seeds and romaine lettuce, with some of the pulp from this morning’s juice.” like its no big deal. Because it isn’t. “Want some?” (‘O’)ï¼
“no thanks!” (x.X)_
“Where’s yours?” (’-’)?
That’s a good idea Ambikalee. I’ll do that. Unfortunatelly we can’t be happy and tell everyone that we are on a wonderful raw lifestyle. I believe that that was my mistake.I was too much happy. Some people can not take it. Well,I still happy with my raw lifestyle,but now I’ll be “cooked food intolerante”.
when i wasnt a veg, if i heard some say they were one i thought they were nuts ! now its natural to me. the topic always comes up and what seems like a good thing as soon as “im a veg” comes outta my mouth i get that look like, im nuts. there is no point trying to explain it unless they ask and usaully its because they are wondering whats wrong with us! hahahaahahahaha
