My daughter is a freshman in college and while food services does their best to accomodate her she has had many cc issues. We are looking into accomodations for her (I am hoping we can have something in place next semester) so she can have her own kitchen. She is tired of not having control and having to deal with not feeling well after eating something she thought was safe. She is vigilant, but unfortuately that is not good enough and it gets a little demoralizing. I think even if she shares a unit with someone who does not have a gluten intolerance it will still be a better situation for her because she will be able to control her environment a little better. The other problem with trying to stick with a meal plan is that so many of the offered foods are processed and most processed foods contain gluten. Her diet has become very monotonous. Salad, grilled chicken, or gluten free pasta with oil or butter (all sauces offered including marinara have gluten in them) day in, day out. I do not feel it is healthy to have so little variety in her diet. IMO if you can get your daughter into her own place with a kitchen she will be better off.
I wish your daughter the best of luck. This is such an exciting time for her!!!!!
Does she want to transfer to Florida?? LOL.
