Gluten is as Kryptonite.

If I were a super human and I had one weakness or Kryptonite as it were, I would have to say it is Gluten, nothing stops me faster than getting into gluten.

Feed me gluten and I will spend a lot of time in the rest room and unable to perform my super tasks.  Even at places where they have gluten free menus and kitchens they will still mess up.

 It was my husband’s birthday and we went to a place that specializes in people with allergies.  They had a gluten free kitchen and a fully trained staff.  Even knowing it was an allergy I got into a salad where the croutons had been hidden.  Needless to say we paid 50.00 for a 200.00 dinner.  However, I was sick for most of the dinner and the next day.  Not the way I wanted to spend my Husband's special day.  I felt so bad that I was sick and there was nothing we could do.  We did everything right, the only thing I should have done was sit down and ask for the manager first.  Explain to him that I had the allergy and let him deal with the kitchen.  I strongly suggest you do that even if you are at a place no matter how Celiac friendly they are, they can still fail.  

So the easiest way to deal with me as a regular human not even a super human is to feed me gluten and I will be gone for a while at least.  

NaBloPoMo prompt of the day "If you were a superhero, what would be your kryptonite, draining your energy?"

Question of the hour!

What one thing drains your energy? 


  1. My kids and my fibro drain all my energy lol

  2. That's too bad that they had ninja croutons. I hope you are feeling better!
