We have a fairly large family (12 people, spread out). One is vegan by choice (no allergies I am aware of), 3 of us vegetarian, one vegetarian heading towards vegan, one (severe) soy allergy, one egg allergy, 2 lactose intolerant, and 1 gluten allergy.  I don't mind helping with big family meals, or working around people's allergies or dietary choices. I have a SIL who won't eat anything that's gluten free vegan, meaning, the lactose intolarnts (including her), the egg allergy, and the gluten allergy, in her mind, take a back seat. Do I just say there's no egg and no soy and not say anything else about it, or do I tell the truth, it's gluten free and vegan? How do you handle something like this? 


Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Let her starve.  Sorry, but that's just stupid and petty.  Like people who "won't eat anything organic" cause it just encourages the hippies.

That's a completely arbitrary reason to reject food and infantile behaviour as well.

Agree, just ignore it the same as you would the behaviours of a temperamental kid.
