Went Home Hungry After a Birthday Party

We attended a friend's birthday lunch but went home hungry. It was not because there were no foods. In fact, the buffet table was laden with various pork dishes with the big roasted pig holding the center of everyone's attention. But my husband and I no longer enjoy unhealthy dishes like these and we have for years not been eating them. So, while the guests were happily feasting on the dishes, we were like fasting.. Good thing there were slices of watermelons and pineapples sliced so we had something to eat at least and we were thankful that the busy host did not notice that we did not touch the dishes at all. Oh our way home, we stopped by a nice restaurant where we had a delightful late lunch with Asparagus tofu dish and and Baked Pink Salmon. We were filled finally and went home happily. Have you ever attended a party but did not enjoy the food?

@salonga The variation of the foods should always be observe. Right now many people are already conscious with their diet and not everyone is enjoying the feast of the meat. But there are occasions I attended serving vegetables, most are salads.

@salonga I turned vegetarian when I was 7. No one I knew was a vegetarian. I am 32 now... I was a vegetarian long before ir was the cool thing to do :-) I really like the healthy eating and healthy lifestyle that so many are moving towards now a days!

Well, I can connect with this experience. I attended a bank function and the spread of sumptuous food was not to my taste as I am a vegetarian. So I had some fruits and soft drinks and went home. However i was happy for those who were tucking into them with relish! siva

I am not quite sure why you think pork is not healthy it is one of the leanest meats and can be quite healthy. I do enjoy pork, I guess it would have depended on the presentation and personally, I don't eat tofu I hate the texture. Hibs eats everything and he is healthy as a horse, no health issues except his Parkinson's which is not diet affected. As a hostess, however, I would always have food for my vegetarian guests since my granddaughter is a vegetarian.

I had a bad food poisoning case before and since I'm very cautious when eating at parties especially if it's outdoor and the food has been exposed under the sun for some time... I'd rather not eat anything if I'm not sure about the food served...
