Gluten free this or that?
First, I understand that some people (celiacs) genuinely can't digest gluten. Fine. But is this just another health food fad of the moment? There was a cartoon in the New Yorker a week with a young couple cruising in a convertible in what appears to be California as backdrop. The caption reads, "I have no idea what gluten is, either, but I'm avoiding it just to be safe." That cracked me up. Bring on the bagels.
