so you know those sprouted breads? manna breads, and i think food for life makes some also...someone told me today i could eat them because sprouted wheat didn't have any gluten...is that true? it seemed like it wouldn't be but i am not sure.

wicked!
i was at my studio today, i just moved into a new one on atlantic near king. and i discovered a 24 hr dominion, just off atlantic. they have alot of gluten free stuff there. i bought an amy's gf pizza. it's plain with cheese. i think they have one that has soya cheese too. (but i didn't actually check if it was gf too, since i can eat cheese)
i put it on our bbq tonight and topped it with other stuff, and then dumped olive oil and garlic and basil on it and it was pretty tasty. i believed it was pizza.

they also have kinnickinick stuff there. like 4 different breads, bagels, some overly sugary blueberry muffins, cookies.
they have a ton of other stuff too. i was impressed.
AND they have this neat new checkout for 1-12 items, where you scan the items yourself and it tells you to put the stuff into bags. it's really creepy and reeks of bad 1980's plots about machines taking over our jobs and the world. i almost asked the manager when i'd be getting my vacation pay cheque.

food warnings. (*&^@*!&^#@)
i recently read a food warning on the www.inspection.gc.ca/ site.
and i have been eating a product listed on there for months from the store across the street from where i work. ugh.

sometimes i think i have everything under control, and things are easy. basically just eat non preprepared foods and stay away from wheat. easy peasy. then stuff like this happens because i have to have some convenience, what with the whole capitalism/work/paycheck/busybusy structure and i can't grow nuts in my backyard.

i don't even understand what the purpose of wheat is in so many products. it seems like there should be some really great conspiracy theories about this. i have been trying to find some good ones, but everyone points me to the farming subsidies. i was hoping for something more bizarre but maybe i just havent' looked into it as deeply as i should.

i totally know i'm still ingesting IT- you know "THE SPICE" from places, (yeah, i never actually read Dune) i just haven't figured out all the sources.

i like that some of my friends are trying to accomodate me, like "hey can you eat chips" when they invite me over.
but i am thinking, why can't you just make something that i don't have to guess in advance without reading the label. like how about fruits and vegetables.
i don't like that some of my friends ask me to pick up some ace bakery bread to their parties, and they aren't joking. today i purposely brought second rate baguette so they won't ask me to bring it next time. i am a passive agressive gf activist. haha. or maybe that should be a passive aglutengressivist. ok i'll stop.
