I recently had five vegetarians over along with meat-eaters. I was able to accommodate everyone's tastes (including the no garlic, no spicy food). It took some thinking, but it worked. I have a lot of food sensitivities--I don't notice them most of the time because I make my own food and don't buy things I can't/shouldn't eat. I don't eat bread very often, so I eat my burgers "bunless." No reason a person can't eat a Philly without bread.

Maybe she should do the cooking and meal planning...

If you are hearing about it long after, you might consider "manning up", look her straight in the face and tell her that her dietary needs are her own. I let my husband know 57 years ago that I was sorry that he did not like onions, but I was going to use them in my cooking. If he sees an onion he picks it out and keeps his mouth shut. I can't remember him scrapping out a plate of food because it had onions in it. My sensitivity is soy oil. I can only make sure that Oldvine does not eat something loaded with soy oil. I can't dictate that the entire household do with out all those products that contain soy oil and there are many.

Yeesh, that's a scary thought! :ohno: Who knows what the diet of the day would be? All-cabbage diet, anyone?

Tell her that she's responsible for her own dietary needs. It sounds like she's setting you up to be her fall guy when her diet doesn't work.

Whatever you do, it's all your fault. Dont' put up with that kind of abuse.

In that case I'd go ahead with the plan and let her eat or not as she wishes. Her diet isn't your problem. It would be a different matter if there was a medical problem but if she's just a faddy eater tough, let her get on with it. She's the one with the bad manners, not you.
