I was reading this article on jacksonville.com by Mark Basch (The Gluten Free Glutton) about how “43 percent of people on a gluten-free diet rated their satisfaction as ‘poor’ or ‘very poor,’ with 35 percent rating it as ‘average.'” So that’s 78% of people on a gf diet that kind of think it sucks.
How sad is that?
Then I got to thinking about how I would rate my satisfaction with my diet. And I think I’d say “above average”. Or maybe “average”? It’s such a weird question.
On the one hand, I still get to eat things like this massive Thanksgiving sandwich from Terri Vegetarian in NYC. And I’m very satisfied.
But on the other, sometimes I have to buy the one gluten free veggie burger in the grocery store, which ends up tasting dry and looking like a dirt patty, and I have to slather it with hummus to make it edible. Then? Not so satisfied.
How would you rate your satisfaction with your gluten free diet?
