Why is it that all social events revolve around food? My Friend wrote here about how she pulled away from social situations partly because of the food. This got me to thinking, searching. I am a social person and I want to be out there with the people. Not always around the little
Sure there is the CHOICE to avoid the food at an event but let's be realistic. How often is that really going to happen without your own internal struggle or external pressures.
I don't avoid social events. In the past 11 month of blogging I have used social events as a teaching moment. Sometimes I succeed as seen here or here. Other times, not so much like here and here.
Help!!!! - Let's brainstorm social events, things to do that don't involve food. Most of the things I can think of are outdoors so maybe someone from a snowy state might have some better ideas.
Socializing without food
Going out for coffee (only) - but I don't drink the stuff
Clothes shopping but pack your lunch or find a healthy alternative
Scrapbooking - with only healthy snacks
Bunco with healthy food (or no food)
Bowling without all the crappy food
Movie - pack a snack and bring water bottle
Most of the ideas I can think of are one on one or small group events. What about bigger groups?
