Hello, chowhounds! I've been a lurker here for a while but now I'm legit. :-)
Here's my question. I am about to go on my first ever vacation with my boyfriend's family. I love them dearly. They've been wonderful to me. However, I'm afraid we have very differing palates. I don't think I'm a "foodie" in the technical sense, but I am very mindful of what I eat. I prefer real, whole foods as opposed to things that come from boxes and cans. They are just the opposite. The menus have all been planned for the week, and as I feared, they contain mostly processed junk.
I will be bringing healthy dishes to supplement, so I have something to eat! But I am afraid of offending them if I do not eat their food. How would you handle this? Thanks much for your advice!
