I probably said all I could say about the subject already in this week’s Dustinland, but in case you didn’t get the point from all that: boy oh boy, does going gluten-free suck. I mean, I can’t say it firsthand, but I can see what it does to someone everyday. Sure, you can live, and in the grand scheme of things, it’s not so bad. Basically, when you go out to eat, just don’t have bread or pasta. That still leaves plenty of good food – meat, chicken, pork, fish, rice, potatoes, fruits and vegetables – all that stuff is still on the table. So it’s almost like being forced to go on a low-card diet. The beer and dessert parts suck the most though. Sometimes you just want a cookie. Or a Guiness. There are plenty of alternatives but they’re usually not accessible if you’re out and about. I will say though, Budweiser makes this gluten-free beer called Red Bridge or something like that and it’s way better than regular Bud, which isn’t a challenge, but still.
