I know, I’m behind the times with this post. Still, I’ve been thinking of it ever since I saw the commercial that caused so much controversy- a commercial making fun of people who don’t eat gluten, calling them “soft.” Other people have written more forcefully and eloquently on the subject, because it’s commercials like this that keep people from taking my dietary needs seriously. (Which is why I’ve spent the last few days sipping peppermint tea and trying to ignore the burning pain in my intestines.)
Still other people accuse us of ruining the fun, because after all, gluten free is the new fad diet. Why would 15,000 people be upset for us to make fun of fad diets? Get a grip, right?
