I once had to do a very strict 10-day diet to get rid of migraines. Every week, we'd go to my Hungarian mother-in-law's home to eat her delicacies. This particular week, I made a batch of cabbage roll casserole, with ingredients that I was allowed to eat; including brown rice and ground turkey. Mother-in-law was invited to try some and she loved it! I was able to eat and not feel left out and it was good for relationships, too. :)
Now, I try to avoid pork, you could say for religious reasons, but specific details are a separate conversation on their own. My mom loves me but still tries to force feed me bacon or pork sausage every chance she can. She just doesn't seem to understand. I'll have a little if I must but try to find ways around it if I can. "More for the rest of you" or "I'll just have extra veggies, thanks". I'm not about being offensive - that does no one any good.
