    Link: Keep Yo Gluten-Free Ass At Home, Dummy - Sure, maybe Victor is nuts, but we can all share his feelings on `those people` who are all of a sudden gluten-free.

    My nephew is gluten-free. His body just wan`t GROWING. They found out his body couldn`t process the gluten, and now the little dude is taller than me. It`s a real thing.

    As a career chef I`ve seen plenty. Alergic to lettuce, dark meat, fish, but salmon is fine. I`ve had to put nacho`s in a blender for a guest who could only drink food. If anyone has been doing it for 5 years you already know what I mean. We`d send people away to other places to borrow thier bannanna peeler. Left handled frying pans.. it`s fun.

    I`m with Victor.
    Stop expecting the whole world to accomodate your personal problems.
    Stop demanding airlines charge for 1 seat when your fat ass is taking up 2.
    Stop expecting schools to ban peanut butter `cause your weak ass kid can`t eat it.
    Stop outlawing Happy Meal toys `cause you`re too lazy to feed your child properly.
    Stop expecting every resteraunt to have gluten free, sodium free, meat free, transfat free, low cholesteral, red dye #4 free, MSG free, poly unsaturates free food.

    Eat a rice cake at home and shut the hell up.

    Yes, TruTenrMan, it`s a real thing. But so many people retardedly think, "Oh, my, well if it`s bad for these so few people, it must be bad for everyone and their body!" and that`s just sad. So, for sales, companies pander to these fruitcakes and create gluten-free everything. I mean, you must realize there`s a "craze" and that these sorts of things only came out in force fairly recently, under the guise of being "healthier" and that`s a bunch of crap. My ex`s mom is a gluten-free nut, and she doesn`t need to be. She`s also anti egg and anti sugar and doesn`t need to be. Nice lady, but seriously, she`s making stuff up for herself and her husband and saying that`s how they "need" to be to be healthier.

    Schools ban peanut butter because the allergy is airborne and deadly in some cases. People are becoming more and more allergic because of what our industry does to wheat. It`s been genetically modified to the point it doesn`t resemble traditional wheat on a genetic level. The food iundustry uses us as guinea pigs. Keep blaming the victims, it is what the corporate world relies on.

    I can`t have cucumbers because I have a strong allergy to them, even the juice from a pickle can be debilitating. Thus, I order things without pickles. If something comes with pickles, I send it back or ask for it to be removed from the bill. I rarely have problems with it when I say up front that I have an allergy to cucumbers so I don`t even want them on the plate.

    Of course I typically order things that don`t come with them to avoid this sort of thing. It`s only when I go to a place that insists on putting it there when I specifically stated not to that there`s any problems.

    Then that kid should be in one of those plastic bubbles! He`s to fragile for the real world. When grown will his employer have to ban peanut butter? Will 7-11 have to stop selling Reeces Pieces? No more Capt. Crunch`s Peanutbutter Crunch! EGADS!

    Annoys me when people go to traditional Frech restaurant and declare they are Vegan and have 30 min conversation with the staff demanding items not on the menu or the cuisine even.
    But allergies are serious business people die, quite dramatic deaths right at the table.
    Chef should be able to identify ingredientts in his/ her menu. If you warn them ahead of the visit most restaurants are happy to work around allergies.

    If I owned a restaurant,it would say in big letters on the menu that if you have a food allergy, Not to consume any of the food.That includes the water.

    Seriously, I`d love to watch somebody drop dead from eating a shrimp or peanut or strawberry.

    I see no problem with attempting to order food that`s traditionally free of ones allergens, but it`s another thing entirely to ask them to change the food around just to accommodate you.

    There`s a HUGE difference between the gluten free healthy eating people and the people who suffer from celiac disease. One`s a trend following poser and the other has a serious disease.

    YEAH, and the crippled, too! How DARE they expect ramps to be built for them . Why don`t they just curl up and DIE to sad music like the Elephant man?!

    @Palfas & Bullish
    Thanks for brining some sense to this thread, I`m coeliac myself; I don`t expect restaurants to change things or give me special treatment, usually I check online before I go to a place to see what I can and can`t eat, so it`s less of an ordeal.

    @Gerry1of1:

    From what I know about you on this board (and correct me if I`m wrong), you are a big advocate of gay rights. If so, what you`re posting in this thread is incredibly hypocritical. "Stop demanding that gay people have the right to marry" would fit very well with the other things on your list.

    People like "Victor" should not work in the customer service industry. I work in a summer job where I provide customer service to people, and I would never have this attitude towards our guests. If I did I would be fired so quickly.

    Some people cannot digest gluten. They have the right to expect restaurants to be cooperative about that.

    My girlfriend has a serious peanut allergy, and we rarely have to change our plans or orders because of it because most menus have the common allergens listed next to the name of the dish. Of course, when you go into a Chinese restaurant and ask "Do you use any peanut products for cooking?" and they say no, then usually you`d assume that they actually checked. We spent the night in the ER last week because of it.

    "the gluten free healthy eating people..."

    There`s absolutely no reason that gluten is ever bad for anyone who doesn`t have a disease. In fact, most food altered to be gluten-free ends up being less nutritious.

    Celiac Disease is probably what she has. My father-in-law has it too, and so long as you`re smart about your eating, you can live with it with no problem. Victor`s attitude is unwarranted, but I think I`d be a little pissed too if someone made me go through the trouble to go find out and they are eating, and they`re already chowing down before I can even get back with the correct answer.

    By the way Sathon, Gerry1of1 -is- gay.

    A couple guys I work with found they had fewer digestive problems when they avoided foods with gluten. They aren`t hard core about it but they do try to eat less bread and the like. Which is hard when you are AV crew and most clients buy us cold sandwiches and pizza for meals.

    I hate listening to people`s stupid beliefs about nutrition. Nutrition is not complicated. Eat more vegetables, limit cholesterol. Cut calories and exercise to lose weight. That`s it. That is everything you need to know about food. Fer cryin` out loud.

    @Sathon how is it the restaurant`s responsibility to make sure they can cater to every individual dietary concern of their customers. I think it`s the customer`s responsibility to know what they can and cannot have and plan accordingly. Our society is becoming softer because we cater to the weak. We should start letting the weak die off so we can continue the evolutionary process.

    @ Sathon - you are right, I am a champion for gay rights. But that is not hypocritical with my other statements.

    With gay rights, I do not expect anyone else to go gay. Nor do they have to behave gay or give up straight sex for my personal benefit. People that have a problem and expect everyone around them to change their behavior to accomodate them is very differant. I don`t demand a gay-menu at resteraunts. I ask you leave me alone, not change your life. see the differance?

    Ugh, some people. He deserves a good smack, or a debilitating allergy to certain foods to see how it feels if it`s all real. As for the girl if its a life and death thing she wouldn`t have eaten it, sounds like she just doesn`t like wheat. A lot of people say they`re allergic when they just don`t like something.

    As a server don`t get me started. People tend to forget even though we are smiling/acting 100% of the time we do HANDLE the food. So beware stupid people. Just because us waiters are smiling while you complain about something or are very NEEDY doesn`t mean we aren`t fcking with your food. Just watch the movie Waiting. All true.

    If this idiot can`t use proper spelling and grammar, I`m glad I`m not eating at his "restaurant". He probably spits in the food if you`re wearing the wrong shoes. I couldn`t even read it all, the stupidity was making my head hurt.
