Ask if you can, and then bring a favorite salad or h'ourderve to parties. If someone wants to give you food it is often much easier not to explain that you won't eat it or why. Unless they are really interested in nutrition, change the subject and when they're not looking tuck what they gave you UNDER your salad and just don't eat it.
Great to take with you while traveling: apples, avocados, dates, nuts, seeds, a jar of sprouts that are completely ready to eat (but which can also grow when you are not eating them). Be sure to have a "restaurant card" for restaurants. I'll have to check if I already posted that card or not. I have posted it before but it may have gotten lost in the translation of something or other. It's the card as taught by Victoria Boutenko in her book 12 STEPS TO RAW FOOD. It works great because it tells the chef or cook at the restaurant a list of possible raw foods s/he has in the kitchen and asks him or her to simply be creative and give you a dish of some of those foods listed. Also great if you can travel with your own supplies to make dressings, and you can take your dressing into the restaurant with you. You can have a separate card for fruits and another for vegetables; also a separate dressing for fruits than for vegetables. This way you can take the fruit restaurant card in with you when you are going for breakfast for an evening snack and use the veggie card for lunch or dinner.
"People do suffer poor health because of what they eat and what is eating them. Ill will saps your energy. So do anger, hate, jealousy and resentment. Any negative emotions your feel are making you suffer. What we need to do instead is fill our minds with goodwill, forgiveness, faith and love. When you feel anger, tell yourself negative emotions aren't worth the irritation they could cause you. When hurt feelings arise, get the situation straightened out quickly....Pray for the person who has hurt your feelings until YOU feel no more hurt. They probably feel just as bad. Sometimes it's easier said than done. Persistence is key."
