I had someone say "it is too bad you have read every label before you buy anything."
Usually when I pick up something (at a party or someone's house) people assume I'm checking the fat content!
Whatever. No one should have to apologize for looking at the label - IMO more people SHOULD be looking at what's in the food they eat!

Mamatide--I agree 1000%--more people should not only be looking at what they're eating, but probably not eating most of it anyway!
My favorite is my MIL, who baked a loaf of bread with the plastic wrap on. I was letting it rise and asked her to put it in oven for me while I was out for a run. She didn't take the plastic off the bread because she thought that not having gluten in it made it different than regular bread. Like it's ok to bake plastic into it just because it doesn't have gluten??

LOL about the plastic on the loaf - I usually use a towel to cover my bread - does plastic work better (aside from the well-meaning but clueless relatives of course!?)

I said, I cannot have broth, bullion cubes have binders that contain gluten.
Even the salad had those crunchy Asian noodle things on it, so that was a NO, too.
In fact, the only thing I could have eaten were grapes-- if I trusted that gluteny fingers hadn't contaminated them.
AND NO, I DON'T think she was concerned or curious, even tho her husband's a pastor and you'd think she'd have compassion!
