Those chocolate chip cookies: Are they GF? Made with organic, non-GMO ingredients? Is it raw cacao or chips from a company that exploits third world countries? Was Mercury retrograde???
I get it. I think it's the approach that some people with food allergies take. They can't just say, "No thank you." You have to hear the STORY. They make it a moral issue instead of a personal health issue. And they make you wrong for eating what you eat.
I'm GF after many years of illness. Getting glutened will knock me out for a good 3 days. However, I always have snacky things in my purse, I always bring something yummy to a party, and when offered something I can't eat, I smile and say, "No thank you." I don't take it as a personal affront if someone offers me gluten. It's not a moral issue, it's a health one. I don't go around telling others what they should or shouldn't eat; how rude.
I had a waiter tell me one time, "I tried a gluten free sandwich the other day. I don't know what gluten is, but apparently it's DELICIOUS." Hahahaha Yes, food allergies are serious. But we don't have to lose our senses of humour! :-) Hali
P.S. I'm a total fan of bee puke. So yummy.
