The Struggle

So I have a confession…I was gluten free once.

You’re probably wondering, well, what happened? I’m Italian. That’s what happened. The idea of sitting at another family meal staring at meatballs, pasta, pizza, calzones, pies, cakes, cookies–you name it!–practically brought tears to my eyes. I was weak, and I gave in to the power of the pasta.

People often underestimate how much will power it takes to eat gluten free, and they have no idea how much more work you need to do to a) find gluten free food, and b) find good gluten free food. Because I have eaten gluten free for an extended period of time, I can sympathize with the struggles people who don’t eat gluten face everyday. I recently came across this BuzzFeed article that puts a humorous spin on the everyday troubles involved with avoiding gluten. So if you’re gluten deprived, sad, hungry, or really craving a donut, just remember you are not alone! And if you need another pick me up, you could always watch this hilarious YouTube video about food allergies (it’s a Les Miserablé parody, and it is fabulous). Enjoy!

  1. The video is hysterical! I once tried going gluten free and it just took too much effort for me to think about everything I was consuming that contained gluten.

  2. I would like to remind you as well that nothing that I write can be considered legal advice and that I want a commission if Starbucks bases an ad on my example. Would be the major family flood beyond a Bay. The blowfly lays its eggs in the manure that accumulates in the wool at the rear of the sheep. They are ready to attain decrease human body excess fat mainly because they don’t eat like massive bodybuilders or the common gymnasium bum. A sweet 240 Z heralded the row of sports cars and that is where I found my friends, Mark Devito and Jeff Ertwine.
