[Editor’s Note: I’ve asked a few folks to share their gluten-free journey with our readers. Mike’s post is the first in an occasional series on this topic. Enjoy!]
Following a gluten-free lifestyle can be a polarizing thing these days. Some folks believe it’s the only way to go if you want to avoid some of the chemicals used in our food supply (I’m looking at you, Glyphosate). Others know it’s the only way to go if they have a serious health condition, like Celiac disease. Still others think it’s just plain silly. My parents:
“We’ve been eating this way for centuries, right?
And, “My grandma ate gluten until she was 93.”
A Simple Choice
For me, the choice was simple. And my inspiration was very close to home.
