I found out that I had a problem with gluten in February 2012. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be to go gluten free. There are only really three recurring issues that I constantly face:
- If something is gluten free, it doesn't mean that I will like it - There are a LOT of gluten free products out there. A lot of it tastes like sand.
- I miss beer. - I have taken to drinking White Russians. That's a hell of a caucasian, Jackie
- If I don't pack a lunch, I'm screwed. - I have about four go-to lunches in downtown London. This list starts to feel pretty short after a while, and it severely limits options when going out with others.
While I can't do much about the first two (besides becoming The Dude), I can at least crowdsource some options for lunch downtown! Check it out, and if you know any gluten free meals downtown, please add to the list.
From a tech standpoint, this app is ridiculous. It uses Sheetsee to pull data from the spreadsheet, but Sheetsee doesn't let you add or modify data to a spreadsheet. So, I used a Google Form and ajax'd data at it for every action you can take on the site. The sheet is, well, ugly.
