View Full Version : What to eat ...
05-15-2006, 11:00 AM
I need help. I have two black-tie functions coming up. By the time the first one is here, I will (projecting into the future) be 13 days raw. What do I eat? I am sure I will be fine during the cocktail hour -- plenty of raw veggies to munch on. But what do I do when the dinner course is served? It's not as if there is a menu that I can choose from? And I think it might be tacky to bring my own food.
Anyone have experience with this?

Eat the garnishes!!! ;)
Hmmm.... I'll bet there will be a salad served, and chances are there will be atleast SOMETHING raw on the main course. You could pretend to just be a really light eater and get away with eating only the raw that is available.

YEP, the garnishes are always raw, and edible, and I would just leave the rest, you can always call the caterer, and ask for a special meal,
lots of people do this, diabetics, macrobiotics, Kosher, etc, there is nothing wrong in either not eating the food, or asking for what you want.

I usually call and see if any special arrangements can be made. For vegetarian it was easy for them but I've thought of this too now for raw. Maybe you can skip your salad course and have them bring you a bigger one for your entree.

I like the idea of getting a bigger salad -- thanks! And I am sure there is a vegetarian option, but I imagine it would pasta or cooked veggies. But I will ask. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Plan on eating your raw dinner BEFORE to attend the black tie event, so you won't be wanting a lot of food.
Second what has already been said ... call ahead if you can and see what might be available for you. ... eat a double serving of salad. I throw an orange in my purse -- when the salad is served, cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice over the salad for dressing. Tis quick and easy to do, and tastes really good.
