What's with all the Whining?

I haven't posted anything in a while because I have started writing for as their Gwinnett Gluten Free Food Examiner. There are a number of people writing about living gluten free. The vast majority of them are writing about positive experiences and encouraging people to support their local restaurants, grocery stores, etc.

Then there are the ones who are constantly whining about how things aren't good enough and we need to demand more. Some even think we are being treated as second-class citizens. What is wrong with these people? When I was diagnosed more than 12 years ago, I had a hard time just finding groceries. Eating out was just something I didn't do for fear of the unknown. I didn't know how to order properly and I just didn't want to risk a problem, so I learned how to cook for myself and spent my entire weekend cooking and packing lunches.

This is a great time to be on the gluten-free diet. Take time out to support those local companies who are stocking gluten-free products, providing gluten-free meals and teaching gluten-free cooking classes and be happy that people know, understand and are able to accommodate the gluten-free diet.

Be positive. It can only get better!
