  1. Just a thought, but hundreds of years ago, there weren't nearly as many people with celiac disease, because there was less gluten in everything.

  7. It's crazy out there. 😷 I use a lot of Bob's Red Mill products and luckily grabbed a few at the start, but I worry they will run out and there'll be nothing left. Like someone else mentioned, Amazon has a few gluten-free items but they now take weeks to arrive. If someone gets really desperate, E...
