I met my best friend and her 2 kids at the Zoo yesterday with my 2 kids. I always buy lunch there, she always packs her own. Anyhow, after finding a fruit plate in the cafeteria (I was getting really excited about the fries, which are cooked in their own vat, but then I saw them dumping them into the same serving dish as the chicken fingers and serving them with the same scoop, sigh), we went out on the lawn to eat and God bless her, she pulls out a bag of rice cakes and cheese and tells me she is trying to cut down on bread! Part of it may be true, but I also know her well enough to know that she didn't want to sit there and eat bread in front of me! In fact, except for a cereal bar she had for her baby, everything she brought yesterday was gluten-free! I don't expect people to eat my diet, but just knowing someone cares enough to do that really touched me, but I shouldn't be surprised because she is just that kind of girl!

I went to my friends house for a BBQ, and my friend made lettuce burgers, made the boys keep the buns on the other side of the room and even had a gluten-free designated dishcloth for me set aside. I felt so loved. Those gestures mean so much.
I'm happy you had that experience.

You guys are lucky, that is so sweet :) I've had friends buy me gluten-free food before, which was really nice.

It's great when friends understand the diet you have to follow. My friends are super, they always ask questions before they serve food regarding how to keep it gluten-free if possible. It makes this disease easier to deal with when you have a lot of support.

My best friend had a gluten free birthday cake made for me. She works with a woman who makes all sorts of baked goods and she asked her to make me a gluten-free birthday cake. She is the most considerate and thoughtful person ever.

My best friend and my sister in law are very careful with my gluten issues and I love that they are.
