Interestsbackpacking, running, writing, reading, volunteering, working, being a University of Texas fan (HOOK 'EM HORNS!), talking a lot, enjoying life, taking pictures, seeing the world, living life, love and enjoying every precious moment God has given us.
So I recently just started a job and I love it. On my birthday (the 22nd, and only my 4th day of work) (we celebrated all December birthdays then and it just so happened to be on my birthday) I found out that one of my co-workers also is Celiac, so I talk to him for a while and everyone is like "wow thats really cool that there are 2 people here with this" so I go to work the next day and he brought me cookies that were gluten-free that he had made because I couldn't partake in the cake and cookies the day before. How nice is that??!?!?
Well, I just got a job (just graduated from college and its my first "real" job)..and since I am still somewhat new to gluten free eating (gluten-free since Oct), I was wondering what types of things everyone packed in their lunches for work as I am somewhat out of ideas...thanks so much!
I am in the Austin area as well and I have to second what Mightymorg said...ther Herbery is great and if you do ever make it into Austin on occasion Wildwood Art Cafe (Bee Caves Road.) has plenty of Gluten Free foods..it is one of my favorite places in Austin...also you can order from Kinnikinnick on line...and I have yet to find something from them that I do not like. Hope this helpes some!
People around me think I've gone crazy but I think it is just beause the world is used to people knowing what they are allergic to...and they can't understand how you didn't know before. My friends (whom I see more often as family is far away from me) think I have gone crazy and I think to an extent they just don't know how to take it...as if I'm just on a health kick lately instead of an entire lifestyle change. I think they just want me to "snap out of it"
I hope that over time it will be normal for everyone *including myself!*
I've been told it just takes time...so I think you just have to be patient as everyone learns about the "new you"
Well so far I like their Pizza crusts, their white sandwich bread, chocolate donuts and their montanas chocolate chip cookie..
ALSO Mightymorg where do you find them in Austin?? I have only seen them at the Herberry...any other place you know of?
