Subject: How do you handle being a dinner guest of omnis?
Date: January 2, 2007 at 8:03 am PST

I have a tough time when I am a guest of omnis - in the past this has
been a barrier to me maintaining a vegan diet. I want to be a
considerate guest, and not be demanding, or appear judgmental - and I
don't know how to pull this off - it is tough to tell people what they
can and cannot serve. As a dinner guest, a vegetarian diet has been
okay, tho a little awkward at times, as a week or so ago when my well
intentioned hosts had meat in nearly every dish they served. To
complicate matters, we travel a lot, and many of my hosts are not
American and we have both language and cultural differences. Many of
our friends cannot think of anything to serve, and it seems quite a
burden for them. Any ideas?
