Do YOU Have Any Gluten Free Pet Peeves?

10 The use of the word Celiacs. Celiac is derived from the Greek word koiliakos, which means abdominal. Not trying to be the word police, but hey lets get the name of our lifelong special feature right ;)

9 Crazy people who think that I should only eat 100% healthy because I am Gluten Free. Don't try to unjunk my GF junk food and I promise that I will only eat it in moderation, along with my fruits and veggies.

8 The assumption that GF is healthy for EVERYONE. *bangs head on desk*

7 When people say that they wish that they had my willpower so that they could lose weight. *Facepalm*

6 Restaurants with GF options but no formal training on how to keep them that way

5 The smart ass who decided that everything Gluten Free shall be the same price as a brick of gold

4 People who get bent out of shape at the mention of, or hope for a Celiac Disease cure.There is always a risk for product recalls due to mislabelling or CC. I would rather at least be able to take something to prevent serious damage after a mishap than not.

3 Diet and Gluten Free in the same sentence. So very, very wrong and misleading. Ever hear of anyone on the Nut Free Diet or taking up a Shellfish Free Lifestyle? Nope.

2 People who only discuss Gluten Free in the media to make money off of a book or product which they are selling. These people also never advocate for Celiac Awareness. I'm looking at you Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Gwyneth Paltrow.

1 When someone says that they are supposed to eat Gluten Free due to Celiac or an intolerance, then openly admit that they do not stick to the regime 100%. You are part of the problem, not the solution. Buck up or shut up.

  2. I'm new to the GF lifestyle and I'm finding that some of the statements on GF packaging are misleading. My package of "soft bread" was less soft and more "so delicate that trying to take it out of the package caused it to crumble into a hundred tiny pieces." :-/ WTH is with that? Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but good Lord I just want to have a sammich again someday!

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I completely understand the misleading statements on some packages. I've noticed fine print on some items, which says that although the item is GF, it is made in a non dedicated area. Seriously? No thanks.

      Do you mind if I ask which brand of bread you have had trouble with? My favourite is Kinnikinnick Soft Bread. Not to be confused with their original bread line, which is horrendous.
