For many folks with health conditions, eating gluten free is a necessity. And having restrictions placed on your diet can feel isolating in social situations.
We have come a long way with inclusive options for people with all sorts of dietary restrictions but don't be fooled. Processed food is still processed food.
Delicious little balls of sugar (like doughnut holes) are still delicious little balls of sugar, even if they are gluten-free and come from the health food store.
Make use of packaged and prepared food when you need to, so that you can connect and enjoy with your loved ones around a meal. And recognize that whole food, in it's unprocessed state will always be the healthiest option.
