My best friend went on vacation for a month over in Europe and she just got back, she doesn’t know i went vegan while she was away and i am going to a pool party/sleepover that she is hosting in celebration of her birthday i am not sure how to tell her and what to do about food… Any Advice?
Maybe try to explain it as simply as possible (because a lot of people just don’t understand in the beginning, and it’s best to be simple). Tell her that, as I’m sure she’s always known that you love animals, you’ve decided you can’t eat them anymore. She may try to talk you out of it, or tell you you’re crazy, but you’re not wrong in your decision. Tell her you’re doing it the healthy way, and there’s nothing wrong with it. Stick with it and be strong This is what you wanted to do and it’s YOUR choice. If she’s truly your friend – and I’m sure she is – she’ll understand and support you. And even if she doesn’t, it could never come between true friendship.
The first thing I would do is tell your best friend that you went vegan, and what a vegan is. Next I would explain to her why. I would tell her about the cruelty behind the meat, dairy and egg industries and show her videos and information on it. Then ask her if it’s a possibility that she could make vegan food at the party for you. If that’s not an option, bring your own food to the party and share with everyone! It’s a great way to show your friends how great tasting vegan food is!
I would start by asking her if she knows about how cruelly animals are slaughtered, and how you don’t want of be part of it etc. Then, maybe show her some of peta 2′s videos. After this I would explain that you are vegan (because after watching some of the videos it would be hard to ask why!) If she can’t give you vegan food at the party/sleepover, then eat something filling before, and take some snacks to eat in the morning/during the night. You can also show her how tasty vegan food is!
