Gluten-free Monday: Tell Them Again

Woahhhhhh!!! Yes, last week was Food Allergy Awareness Week. Symbol is the Teal Ribbon.

And in honor of the Teal Ribbon, let me repeat: Food allergies and sensitivities are real.

To answer a few (unasked?) questions about food allergies:

Do food allergies and sensitivities always equal throwing up? No.

Are the consequences always instantaneous, affecting the person as soon as they eat? Nope, nope!

Do they only manifest in ways that are accepted, predicted, desired and looked for by people without food allergies? Sorry, No!


Personally, I am happy to cook for myself or eat at the limited number of venues that can prepare food safely for both the general population and those who have to exclude certain foods from their diet due to allergy or other illness, risk or sensitivity.

Its always funny until its you.  :S
