In Topic: Ridiculous Conversations

25 November 2013 - 02:54 PM

LOL at all of these, I can totally relate. I've been vegetarian for over 20 years and vegan for 10+ so I'm totally used to people asking completely idiotic questions and making dumb remarks about what I can/can't eat. Maybe that was practice for being diagnosed with celiac because I get even more people who are clueless. And I hate when people say "I could never do that." As if we have a choice. (Well, I guess we could choose to eat whatever we want and then just suffer...?)

 

A waitress once brought me the gluten free menu I asked for, and then told me that they take gluten-free very seriously and then she brought me a BEER instead of the cider I ordered. I spit it out once I tasted it (I had a feeling it was beer but she inisted it wasn't so I took a sip). Then later she said, Yes it was a beer, she brought me the wrong drink, and then she asked me if she should call an ambulance. ???


In Topic: Do I Need To Replace Things? (Ie. Toaster, Baking Stones?)

I did have to replace the toaster and make our kitchen a gluten free kitchen. Maybe some people aren't that sensitive, but I am. :P 


In Topic: Any Vegetarians That Had To Return To Eating Meat Post Diagnosis?

25 November 2013 - 02:33 PM

I have been a vegan for more than 10 years, and a vegetarian for more than 20 years. I was diagnosed with celiac a couple years ago, so that meant I had to give up most meat substitutes (like veggie dogs) as most of them are made from gluten. That leaves tofu, which I keep hearing is really not good to eat a lot of. :/

I never missed meat until I had to stop eating gluten. But I'm not going to go back to eating meat. That's just my personal choice.
