Don’t let not being able to eat the same foods your friends, co-workers or family eat turn you into a hermit. Find ways to work around food so you can still attend social functions and enjoy time with those you love.
- Attend the wedding or christening then offer your apologies for not being able to attend the dinner.
- Take your own food to the holiday celebration or office potluck. Or show up after the meal to socialize.
- Suggest an activity such as a movie or bowling for an evening out with friends instead of going out for pizza. Or suggest a restaurant that serves gluten free pizza.
Work out ways to spend time and celebrate with those you care about. It isn’t always about you and it isn’t always about food.
