The Gluten Free Differences Between Us
I'm so very tired of people fussing over "unhealthy" Gluten Free products.
Instead of complaining, chastising and pitching a fit, why not be thankful for the Gluten Free options out there. If we don't like what is available, then it is up to us as a community to be active and let the manufacturers know what we want. There is no need to blast someone who gets excited over a new Gluten Free product that does not fit into everyone's vision of what is an acceptable food choice.
We DO need to see a healthier selection of Gluten Free products on the market. But that does not mean that I wish to forgo my chocolate chip cookies. And no I'm not endorsing Diabetes.
Moderation is a key ingredient that people often forget about. There is nothing wrong with a snack in conjunction with a well balanced diet.
Being Gluten Free does not mean we follow the same food pyramid if you will. We are all different and for different reasons.
The beat goes on....
We need to respect each other and be understanding. I would never look down on someone for eating something that I avoid. In fact, I am curious by nature so I would probably want to learn more. That doesn't mean that I would jump on board but it does mean that I would not be judgmental.
Sometimes I just want to enjoy my overpriced Gluten Free cookie without being judged.
That is all.
