More Needs To Be Done

Recommended Posts

I suppose this is venting more than anything, but, as I am going through a really bad patch where my stomach/intestines sound like a washing machine, and I am downing imodium and pepto like candy, I really feel that enough is not being done to help celiacs.

 

I am sick of the lack of choice, particularly the lack of texture in the food I eat.  I eat pretty much the same stuff day in day out.  Of course, if you read the media and the chattering classes, the view is that gluten-free is everywhere.  Well, no it ain't.  I live in San Francisco and I still struggle to eat out.  I have started to take risks . . . and ended up sick.

 

More needs to be done.  More general awareness, better chef training, more options.  

 

I wish so much I was wealthy like all these so-called successes.  You would then see the success I would make of my global chain of gluten-free restaurants.  Seriously, that is all I care about nowadays--my dream of opening wonderful restaurants instead of the pathetic measly so-called choices I am meant to get excited about.

 

I feel patronized and robbed by restaurants, as if they are gracious to offer me ONE crappy gluten-free meal.  It is abysmal.  Give me the money and I will do what needs to be done.

San Fransisco is one of the better places to eat gluten-free. Of course, I'm referring to real restauruant's not fast food. Nice places will do a better job than a fast food place.

I have only been to SF 1 day since I have been gluten-free. I had a lovely breakfast at Mariposa. I can't see how they could have glutened you for breakfast or lunch. I didn't have time to try any of the other places, unfortunately.

You certainly aren't eating out everyday? That isn't good for anyone, gluten-free or not. There are lots of wonderful " normal " foods to fix at home. Many foods never have gluten in them so you don't even have to change the recipe.

Just a disclaimer about these links - Loves is a crazy good gourmet cook. If you don't aspire to that, you might just read her posts for fun

San Francisco is one of the better places--and that is what makes me so mad.  SF is not nearly half as good as it should be.  I want to be able to live a life where I can go out and expect, say, one in every four or five restaurants to be gluten aware, instead of making the long side-trips to the same few restaurants again and again and again.  I am fed up of being treated like a second-class citizen.
