How do non-vegan friends manage when they want to invite vegans over for a meal?
Friends and family often show love through food. It's often a time to sit, socialise, give the body what it needs, and possibly go a bit further, and indulge, with those you care about!
I've heard and seen people get stressed and anxious over cooking a vegan meal, before the 'guests' have been asked, or date has been set. This fear and insecurity is often pre-everything, and I've seen it go either way. The host might find someone to talk it through with, after which they usually realise that they can make something without difficulty. Alternatively, they may not entertain the thought any further and decide to avoid cooking at home and meet everyone in a restaurant, or simply not go ahead with the food part of the meet-up.
