Okay so I have been using the 'allergic to wheat' [along with sensitive to peanuts/corn/soy] excuse for a while now and it has been working wonders for me. However, there will come times when a friend will get me 'gluten free' [but not grain-free] foods. For example, last night my friend bought be a gourmet rice-flour brownie at a health-foods store to repay me for doing her laundry (which rice isn't the worst possible thing I could have eaten, and all the other ingredients were primal friendly, but still...) even when at the store I said she didn't have to, she insisted. So i grin and bear it and eat it. It wasn't a big deal, but also when we were at the grocery store shopping [for a cheese and wine party], my friends were looking at the gluten-free crackers for me and I was at least able to talk them out of those by saying 'oh don't cater to me- i'm fine with just having the cheese by itself'..... is there any possible way to get out of these situations as well??? right now I guess I just see the benefits or eating a little brownie outweighing the negatives, but just wondering what you guys all do? AND does anyone else have similar stories where the wheat-allergen excuse has failed??
No announcement yet.
when the celiac excuse fails......
