#628133 "But You Can Eat Whole Wheat, Right?"

Posted by earthtoneNJ on 31 July 2010 - 08:21 PM

What are you favorite clueless quotes from gluten-eaters?

Here was my day:

Relative: "What can't you eat in the lasagna?"
Me: "The cheese, and the pasta."
Relative: "Oh... But I made it with whole wheat pasta, I thought maybe you could eat that."

I wish I could say that was the first person who thought whole wheat was okay after I explain "I can't eat even the slightest trace of wheat." I don't get people!! Oh, I'm patient with them, and I resist the urge to scream and/or bust out laughing before explaining that whole wheat is wheat. Who'da thunkit? ;)

Oh, and then there's "Huh. This gluten-free stuff you made isn't actually that bad." Lol, thanks for the high praise of my culinary skill! Nevermind that it was basically beans & veg sauteed with garlic, which shouldn't have gluten in the first place... Call it gluten-free and it must be disgusting. Ah, if only they knew how well I eat :D

After a nutty afternoon with the family, I needed to vent among people who know better!!
