I woke up, filled with dread. This day had loomed in my mind like a dark cloud on a distant horizon.
I rolled out of bed and left my apartment, still wearing the clothes in which I slept. Turning the corner, I walked into Swallow Cafe and evaluated the pastry selection.
Where were the weird gluten-free pastries I had seen just last week — and turned up my nose at? Not at Swallow, apparently.

The jury is still out but I may have to go gluten-free in the near future. You can guess how I feel about that possibility.
In the meantime, I’m doing some research.
So far, it’s breakfast that concerns me the most. I love French toast, and regular toast, and pancakes. Breakfast would appear to require the most sacrifice.
Desserts worry me too, although if Scranton-area bakeries are even offering gluten-free treats, I might be OK.
I found an amazing list of restaurants with good gluten-free offerings in Austin via ATX Gluten Free.
NYC is a good place to live if you have to be gluten-free.
Are you gluten-free? What’s your biggest challenge?
