30 Bananas a Day!

Hi everyone- I'll mention again that I'm a newbie here, to the site, and to the lifestyle.  How do you all handle managing your social life? I've turned down a few invites to do things that involve going to restaurants or bars, and so I thought I'd ask for your opinions.  I do suggest doing other activities with people I would like to hang out with- for example, I went to the gym with one friend, and today went to see a movie with another friend.  I suppose this is a way of working around it, and making time to see those who I actually want to see. What are your thoughts?

it's been awhile, but yeah. . .  i did like to go to the bar and order a pineapple juice ;o)

Yep...the social aspect can be hard :/ My grandparents and aunties etc say we are 'difficult' because my immediate family doesn't eat what they eat ie. sentient being flesh and secretions. They all think we are nuts/bananas :) You think they would be used to it by now but nar :/

Eating out is hard but there is usually something on the menu you can work with. Calling the restaurant ahead of time is helpful. I have had nice experiences with this...I get there and they have had a nice little all vegan menu hand-written out for me. A lot of places will try to look after you :) I have had pumpkin risotto, pizza, big salads, bruscetta (not sure how to spell it)...It would be a shame to completely lose your social life because you choose a vegan life. 

And yes...you are on the right track! Do other things with your friends like go to the beach, exercise together, yoga class, playing pool is fun (you can drink oj :) ) A lot of the things we do together involve food don't they? Good luck with it all Nick! You will be fine but I think it is important to maintain those relationships that you enjoy, not so much with the people that aren't supportive of your vegan lifestyle :)
