The cheat day.  This subject really bothers me.  If you have celiac there is no such thing as a cheat day.  You will get very sick if you even get a crumb.  But with the latest Gluten Free craze people are eating for all kinds of reasons.

My daughter has celiac and she goes to school with a few other people who are eating Gluten free.  One says she has celiac and the other says they think she has celiac.  So that would seem great. My daughter is not alone. But hold on a moment.  They had a pizza party one day and of course pizza has gluten.  The one girl was eating the pizza.  My daughter was like what are you doing. She says oh I cheat once or twice a week.  WHAT.  She acted like it was no big deal.  I am telling you this because it make my daughter look like a liar.  People are wondering if she can eat it a little why can’t you.  So real simple if you have Celiac there is no such thing as a cheat day.  If you are eating Gluten free for any other reason and you choose to cheat you will probably feel sick. That is your choice but don’t make the ones who adhere to the diet seem like they are faking or lying.    I know it is hard with tween and teenage girls.  They know everything.  If the kid says they can’t eat it they can’t eat it.  Believe me no one would eat like this if it did nothing for them.
