I feel much more comfortable eating gluten-free. But it creates problems when I’m invited to the homes of friends. What’s the best way to deal with my dietary restrictions when invited to these affairs? — RESTRICTED EATER
Dear Restricted Eater,
You call up whoever invited you and say “Hey Brenda, I’m eating gluten free and was wondering what you will be serving? If you could provide a gluten free option that’d be awesome, but, I understand it’s an inconvenience. So, I can bring something for myself to eat that fits with my diet if a gluten free option is not available. Thanks a bunch!”
The good news is that there a tons of gluten-free options available and your dinner party hosts could potentially be able to accommodate you. At the same time, how many dinner parties are you getting invited to??? Check you out! Ms./Mr. Popular!
But at least you’re not vegan. They can be the worst and nearly impossible to deal with when planning meals.
