It isn't always easy to be gluten-free.
I walked into the break room at work to find a table smothered in gluten.  And, I work alone.  Just me with my banana and all that gluten in a stare-down match.
This time the banana won.
This time I stayed strong for not only me, but for my family too (Paul are you reading this?).  Most of the time I can fight the urge to splurge and remember that the temporary joy of eating gluten-filled items is most often not worth the three days of emotional agony and physical pain to follow.  We call that being "whacked out on wheat."
But on stressful days...sometimes the siren song of gluten is too hard to resist.
