Did you catch the NewsWorks piece from earlier this week written by Philly comedian and begrudging celiac sufferer Valerie DiMambro about what it’s really like to eat gluten free? Nutshell: she’s, er, not so much a fan.
I don’t need everyone’s constant reminders that everything I eat tastes fantastically disgusting. I know this. I’m eating it. All. The. Time.
What did I do in a past life to be punished with fake cake? People wonder why I don’t smoke weed. What would I eat when I get the munchies? Carrots? Apples? Lame!
Free from gluten? More like free from flavor. More like free from joy.
Her essay is funny and maybe a tad sad. Read it here.
I want to hear from you gluten-free eaters: Does everyone go through a GF learning curve, during which time you eat a lot of gross things until you find the good stuff? Does it get better? Tell us in the comments.
