Navigating the Social Scene

Navigating the Social Scene

When first becoming a plant-based eater, the idea of socializing during a meal can be daunting.  If done with a little forethought, it can be just as relaxing and enjoyable as always.  Two strategies to keep in mind:

  1. Focus on Modeling.  You may be tempted to share how great you are feeling along with the many benefits of eating a plant-based diet.  Surprisingly, however, many people get defensive when you share this information because they think you are trying to convert them.  The best strategy is to enjoy your evening and only discuss your new lifestyle when asked.
  2. Be flexible. You may discover that your eating plan, when you get to your location, is not available.  Do the best you can with what is available.  The worst case scenario is to simply eat around the animal products (quietly).

Here are some specific tips:

  • Restaurants:  Before you go, try looking at the menu online so that you have a good idea of what you are going to order.  If you cannot find a good option, order several sides that can be placed on a single plate.
  • Visiting friends and family:  Offer to bring a side dish (or two) that is hearty, tasty and everyone will enjoy.  Options like pasta dishes,  salads, or dip trays with veggies and pita bread always go over well.
  • Office Party or Cocktail Party:  Eat something beforehand so you are not starving when you walk into the party.  Focus on enjoying the people, not necessarily the food.  Most often there will be a vegetable or fruit tray available.

Eating healthy is actually the new, ‘in thing’,  so relax and realize in almost every circumstances you will be able to find something you will want to eat.  The trick is relax and enjoy the social experience!
