The Huffington Post shares perspectives on pet peeves of being GF. I’ll let you read the article for yourself (or browse the twitter traffic), I’m sure you can relate to many of them! Most of these examples I feel like I can handle with grace (or I try to!), like having someone ask you about your symptoms at the dinner table with strangers! The one that gets my goat is restuarants where I ask for no bread/bun/fries and maybe just some greens instead. “Sure, with a side salad that will be $5 extra.” Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat…? I also get tired of going to multiple grocery stores to get what I need but, really, that’s a #firstworldproblem!
The “I could never give up bread” is hard. I sometimes pick up a piece of bread and just sniff it if I know that it’s an extra-wonderful bread, but I like many kinds of GF bread — and have learned DON’T toast it as long as wheat or other breads. It’s funny that I don’t crave those breads any more.
