Hold The Bean Sprouts

Dear Food Manufacturers,

I have celiac disease.  Therefore, I need products that are gluten free.  I do not, however, need products that are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, all natural, organic, and grown by two aging hippies living off the grid in a commune deep in the Pacific Northwest.  And, I do not need to pay 5 bucks for a microwave burrito.

Thanks, and hold the bean sprouts!

They charge the earth for anything that is slightly different from the norm don't they? :(

They are certain foods that existed before the gluten free craze that are naturally gluten free. They should have the label on the box or package.

When you are special, you pay. Good luck, you'll find some deals on the interwebs. :)

Trying to eat right is a real pain in the -- whatever!!

TALON said...

"natural" seems to equal "expensive"...though, when considered logically (especially when grown by hirsute hippies) it should be so much less :)

Pass the bean sprouts. I love them with steak.

I read that as "celtic free" and had to do a double-take.

And I agree. When did eating healthy mean having to pay out the nose for a simple burrito? It's crazy!

My daughter-in-law has to eat Gluten free. Luckily, here in Colorado, there are many stores that sell gluten free products for her to chose from.

There are lots of good gluten free blogs online -- check out my Pinterest "Gluten Free" recipe and resource board here:

Good luck!

This is so true. I feel sometimes like starting a company that would be "not do healthy" as they seem to think that anyone with a problem with gluten also has a problem with salt and oil. It is crazy and so frustrating. K.

Our supermarket has a special section for gluten-free, organic, non-sugar etc etc....food for special needs old people I guess. My friend says "it's the section for people who have too much money to spend on food!". Kind of funny, but kind of tragic actually.
