This particular problem hammered me like a blacksmith beating a piece of hot steel into submission.
And, it produced one of those “How could I have been so stupid” moments.
This “social life” problem hits most everyone (in varying degrees, of course) who must begin to eat gluten-free and almost no one realizes they need to tell you about it.
How to eat gluten-free and not destroy your relationships is a very real and significant problem for MANY newly gluten sensitive individuals… And, maybe some not-so-newly sensitive individuals.
Well, I’m going to tell you about what happened to me and explain what I should have done about it to keep it from happening as bad as it did to me.
The reason it hit me so hard was because most of my social life, other than personal time and dates with the love of my life, my husband, revolved around meal times with family and friends. Sharing good food, good company and good times was and still is tremendously important to me.
