Whenever I visit I cook gluten-free for them so they see how easy it is. Maybe your sister will change her mind after a while. Stranger things have happened.
They know I am a gourmet cook. They have experienced my dazzling creations.
But actually adopting the diet themselves? um, I am afraid hell will hold hockey games before my family members step away from the donuts, bread-coated fried foods and subway sammies. Not. Going. To. Happen.
I cannot keep saying things because they get mad at me.
I continue to pray to the heavens that something intervenes and changes their minds before it's too late.
But you are so right. Stranger things have happened!

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.
