LLVLC On YouTube (Episode 29): You Don't Have To Be A Low-Carb Recluse At Parties

Why are these the typical kind of foods served at a party?

We've all been invited to parties before, right? What a great time to get together with friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else to have some fun, frolicking, and don't forget the food! Did I mention food--cakes, pies, doughnuts, pizza...the kind of stuff that will absolutely make you cringe if you are livin' la vida low-carb. What's up with that anyway? Who declared those the official approved menu items for parties and get-togethers? UGH! It makes you wanna be a party-pooper and just stay home, right?

In Episode 29 of "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube," Christine and I are back in the studio again to explore this always timely topic about what a low-carber is to do when you are invited to a party. No, it's not the end of the world and it can actually be an excellent time to be an amazing witness to others about the incredible lifestyle change you have made. But you gotta be ready for the comments from well-meaning folks and arm yourself with strategies for getting through the party without throwing your low-carb life down the toilet in the process.

Take a good look at what you should focus on at parties in today's video:

Whenever I am invited to a party, I always like to bring a special low-carb dish so that I KNOW there will be at least ONE item there I can eat. For example, in our video today, Christine mentioned that I recently brought True Lemon Cheesecake to a get-together with the choir from our church (see what I ate on this day at my Low-Carb Menus blog). It was an excellent dessert to go with the toppings from the pizza they served. Yes, I had to improvise, but you do what you gotta do. It's the beauty of living healthy the livin' la vida low-carb way!

Another observation about people's behavior at parties--the host or hostess or Aunt Bessie or whomever will zoom in on overweight folks as though they are the designated party garbage cans. If normal-weight people refuse food that is offered to them, no offense is taken, but not so if fat folks turn it down. It's as if you've just hurled the most vile insult. "Oh, the horror, a FAT person has refused my food!!" Vegetarians think they have it rough, but, although they may not have many choices at parties, I haven't seen them relentlessly pursued until they eat some meat.
