#890653 Ridiculous Conversations

Posted by Auntie_Manda on 03 October 2013 - 03:39 PM

Right? I HATE when people are like, "oh, I couldn't do that!" Yes, yes you could, if your health depended on it, and if you felt miserable for a week after eating a cracker. My 2nd most hated comment is, "that's so expensive, though!" Ok, well, forgetting the halthcare and medication required to NOT be gluten-free, may I remind you that rice is cheap, fruits & veggies & meat don't cost more than what you pay... it's only expensive if you buy the gluten-free versions of food that has gluten in it. And not being able to eat at resturants sure saves ME a lot of money!

#890575 How To Deal With Unsupportive Friends?

Posted by Auntie_Manda on 03 October 2013 - 03:48 AM

Oh, and if I get annoyed enough, I will say, "You're right. I must be making this up for attention. It's just so much fun not being able to eat my favorite foods anymore." People are so dumb! Why would we make this stuff up?!?

#890572 Ridiculous Conversations

Posted by Auntie_Manda on 03 October 2013 - 03:22 AM

This morning I was thinking... I should write a book about all the ridiculous conversations I've had with people about gluten free diet, etc. I'll bet there are lots of stories out there... let's share. Laughing is a good way to cope, right?

 

So I told my coworker (who is also my aunt) that gluten-free diet cleared up my daily migraines (she has migraines often as well). Her response: "well I know that isn't the problem because Aunt F has celiac and she still gets migraines even though she's gluten-free". Sigh. Ok...

 

Here's another one:

LL: did I hear you are wheat free?

Me: yes. Well, I'm gluten-free, which is wheat free.

LL: Well, not all wheat has gluten.

Me: it does...

LL: No, there's this unaltered strain of wheat that some amish farmer in NY has.

Me: Ok, well I don't have access to that, so I'm wheat free. 

LL: *goes on to discuss just starting wheat free and seeing a big difference, and using coconut wheat (?!?) as a substitution*

Me: Well that's good. So wheat is definitely a problem for you, huh?
LL: For sure. I ate pizza all weekend and I'm paying the price now!

They make circular, bigger cheese crackers as well.
