Gluten Free Goodies

Gluten Free Finds. 

I have to be honest - I've never been that concerned with vegetarian this, gluten free that, or fat free the other.  I'm a sweet tea boy through and through.

But many people have moved toward vegetarianism, gluten and dairy free diets, and living in California, it's pretty hard to ignore. Lately, however, I've been a bit more open to the idea of gluten free/dairy free, and sensitivities to food preparation altogether. I've become even more tuned in to eating at home and preparing my own meals.  Two nights ago I was ordering small bites at a restaurant which, when delivered, were passed through a crowd of 500 people from the kitchen to me, and I can't imagine how many coughs or sneezes adorned my plates before I actually partook. I'd much rather have eaten at home.  

Today while strolling down the Pampers aisle (not that I have kids but it was the next turn so I took it), I noticed the cereal across the way.   Interesting placement of retail don't you think?   Screaming babies - a quick grab of cereal to pacify them and you're off.  Smart retailers he sighs.  

But if we're going to eat cereal, drink milk or enjoy a nice steak, isn't it worth it to spend a buck more for lean, conscious products that support our bodies?  I've personally never had an issue with cereal, lettuce or cheese, but enjoyed seeing today that my childhood favorite products are working toward providing more options for more people.

If you do have diet sensitivities, there are so many options for you.   Or if you're a "normie" like me,  it still might bid you well to pay attention to what's on the box, or what's in the bag.  Here's to your beauty, here's to your health.
