Do you have a legitimate issue with gluten?

No?

Then yes.

You do you subby

Just leave us out of it.

Not unless you requested gluten free toast and then proceeded to consume seven other varieties of gluten with your meal, all while extolling the virtues of your newfound gluten free diet and how you're sure you have an intolerance.

Do you have celiac disease?

Eating that for breakfast doesn't make you part of any problem. It's your breakfast. Feeling the need to post a thread about it, though, makes you the problem in its entirety. Especially since there's about a 98 percent chance you didn't have that for breakfast at all and merely wanted to start yet another stupid discussion.

I haven't had it but avocado toast sounds delicious. I'll take mine with extra gluten though.

Did you put sardines on the avocado toast? Why gluten free?

Just pray allergies to rice, sorghum, potato, oat, or quinoa flour don't become trendy. Then you'll be really f*cked.

All these people who are after gluten-free stuff make it much easier for those with real gluten problems to find foods. It's farking great.

Everyone having access to avocados all year is probably unsustainable. So I say enjoy it while you can.

Jake Havechek: Do you have celiac disease?


Not everyone who has issues with gluten suffer from celiac disease.  Like most things in life, it's not black and white, and people process gluten in different ways.

That being said, people who get mild indigestion and act like they have celiac disease are certainly not helping the situation.

As someone who has hates avocados, I've often wondered the exact same thing.  And it's not like you can just take them off after you find them in your sandwich.  They tend to smear all over everything.

If you're eating avocados for breakfast, you're part of the avocado problem.  Why in the world you would put them on gluten free bread is beyond me.

Vegans aren't a problem, its them not shutting up about it that's a problem.

So yes Sub, you are the problem.

It's a "healthy fat" so it's counter-balances everything unhealthy you eat.  Like Stevia or Kale does.

But on the other hand, hipsters avoiding gluten has lead to a ton more choices in food for people that actually do have gluten issues.  I often see gluten-free menus at restaurants and gluten-free options at the grocery store that simply weren't around a few years ago.

Use a really nice baguette or some other good bread, slice on a bias, brush it with some oil from the sardines, then throw it on a grill for a few seconds to get a few grill marks. Now put the avocado and sardines on it.

I wonder if it's actually endangered people with actual allergies. A chef sees a request for gluten free, thinks "oh, it's just another trend follower who's doing the latest fad diet," and isn't as careful about contamination as they would be with something like a nut allergy because they think it's just someone who wants to be special.

Possible, but I would think if someone is that sensitive to any gluten that they're probably stuck preparing their foods themselves just to be safe.  I don't know if gluten intolerance is anywhere near as bad as nut allergies, where a bit of airborne contaminant can completely fark someone up.

I've seen gluten free menus which straight up admit they aren't for people with actual gluten issues. It might as well say, "Look, we only do this for hipsters. We don't care about YOUR problems."

Yes, but generally places will use soft language like "no gluten ingredients" and back off if someone starts asking too scary of questions (e.g. "do the kitchen staff change their gloves?").  The problem is usually with the servers and not the kitchen staff though.  Sometimes whole restaurants don't give a f*ck though.  I had a manager sighing at me and offering to get me something else on the house.  No, asshole, I'm having stomach cramps I'm not in a mood for more food.

Every chain restaurant has that because a lawyer explained that's a liability loop hole and I call it playing rectum roulette.  It depends on how the kitchen actually operates whether it's safe enough.  For example some places will make GF pizza in the walk-in where everything is sealed except for a handful of ingredients.  That's pretty safe.  Some places will make GF sandwiches on the same line as the regular ones.  That's going to ruin an afternoon for me.

I mean, I don't go out of my way to eat gluten free things. Some stuff just doesn't have gluten in it.

I'll give it a go. I have a tin that's been sitting around the cupboard for a while, just need to steal my coworker's avocado from his lunch.  Congratulations on facilitating petty theft!

I, for one, have no issue with gluten-free toast in principle.  However, 99% of gluten-free breads I've tried have been disgusting.

Ant: Did you put sardines on the avocado toast? Why gluten free?


I like my avocado toast with bacon, ham, cheese, a little spicy brown mustard and a fried egg and another slice of toast on top.

In short, a big ass breakfast sandwich.

// it needs the gluten so that the bread doesn't fall apart due to the volume of the ingredients. I remember buying a non-gluten wrap once (when they were out of the regular stuff) and the damn thing just fell apart when I put my delicious ingredients inside of it.

I don't think anyone is making fun of people who actually suffer from celiac disease. All of the derision is reserved for otherwise healthy people who, for some unfathomable reason I can't even begin to comprehend, like to pretend that they have a serious disease.

as a semi-recent gluten free convert (almost a year now, found out i was gluten sensitive), i have discovered a few replacement things i dont mind those versions of. for one, some Bob's Red Mill pancake flour. they really are some pretty decent replacements for good old pancakes. and i also like the Nature's Path dark chocolate frozen waffles. they arent really pricey either, and the chocolate is tasty. i still dont buy any GF loaves of bread though. the cheapest is $6/loaf. i just cant do it. but one thing i didnt really lose was cereal. a ton of them were already GF for decades.

i was recently gifted a loaf of said GF bread, too. the cold sandwich i made with it was not very good. but the grilled cheese was alright. toast is pretty bad til i put pb and/or j on it. none of it was $6 good though.
