Wanna break gluten-free bread with me? It really doesn’t matter to me why you’re gluten-free. I’ll still totally share.
I’ll share recipes and advice, a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on. Who told you that only those who get sick from a speck of gluten are welcome? Not true on my blog. No ma’am.
It breaks my heart to hear it, but is there really some perceived sort of pecking order when it comes to eating gluten-free? Like you get a gold star if you’re a celiac, a silver medal if you have medically recognized non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and everyone else has no right eating our bread?
Well, that really takes one upmanship to a whole new level, doesn’t it.
You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to enjoy a gluten-free Thin Mint, do you?
No. You don’t.
I say live GF and let live GF.
These gluten-free Do-Si-Dos? They’re yours for the asking. No proof of Girl-Scouty-ness required.
And I’m not afraid to say it out loud: Even if you are eating gluten-free because you are jumping on some so-called fad, it’s all the same to me. C’mon in—it’s a big tent. Or at least it should be.
You don’t need to be Irish to enjoy a nice Gluten-free Shamrock Shake cupcake, after all.
And, if you do eat gluten-free, whatever your reason, there’s plenty more where that came from. My son has to eat gluten-free to stay alive and well, but it’s not like you’re taking the very food out of his 8-year-old mouth. And I’m not about to make anyone feel like they need my permission to eat gluten-free.
So if it’s any consolation, I’m here to cheer you on, no matter how you got here. ‘Cause I’m glad you’re here, and that’s all.
