Keeping the peace

I read an article at Salon.com - Dilemmas of a gluten-free convert by Molly May. In it she writes:

Food gets personal, cultural and economic. People bare teeth to defend why they eat what they eat.

I began to steer toward the middle road. When a friend’s toddler baked a cookie just for me, I ate it. At the home of a sourdough bread baker, wheat melted in my mouth.

Sometimes, we have to weave between honoring community and self.

Do you compromise on your gluten free or food allergy diet just to keep the peace and fit in with family and friends?  Join our discussion on the Udi’s Gluten Free Community site or comment below.
