Emily T Posted November 14, 2013 Share Posted November 14, 2013 My family is mostly supportive of my decision to eat grain and sugar free, but they are all very active and healthy people who think I am overdoing it, and don't hesitate to make comments sometimes. You all know the type. The week of Thanksgiving, I arrive in town at 6PM at night, where I'll be whisked off to Grandma's kitchen where everyone is sitting down for our traditional lasagna dinner. They'll have a big salad, and I can bring my own dressing, but I will need a quick and simple protein I can throw together when I can there (need to have just a few ingredients that I can ask someone to pick up beforehand). I don't want just plain chicken breast or something boring - I don't want my family looking at me with pity in their eyes saying, "Oh, just have a piece of lasagna, its not going to kill you, that looks gross, wow I am so glad I don't have to eat that." Etc etc. Its a pride thing I guess! I've got a shopping list and time to prepare delicious, healthy meals for the rest of the week, and I'm looking forward to proving to them that grain-free pies and stuffing can be delicious. I just need help on this one night! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
