“I just want to thank you for being so amazing to me.You have always been so kind, friendly and accommodating to me and I really appreciate that.
Most of all, be as gracious as possible, especially if they are cooking and trying to accommodate you and your needs. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – ask about ALL of their restrictions. Sometimes this can help open your eyes to all of the possibilities instead of focusing on the restrictions. Ask about dishes that you could make that would be safe for your guest, enjoyed by all and easy for you to prepare.
After my last donation I received a gift from the recipients with the most heartwarming thank-you card.
As part of my ongoing series with Free People on Restricted Diets, today I am sharing a quick how-to for both host and guest, when dealing with special dietary needs.
The simple truth of the matter is, it isn’t easy, especially if you don’t have experience with their special dietary needs or choices.
If you are making the choice to host them and accommodate their needs, the best advice I can give is to always ask them any and all questions that you have, so you can be educated on their diet limitations and provide for them, as best possible.
