I know that there is a bunch of critics out there about people eating gluten free and not having a gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease for kicks.
I am not one of them. I’m the real deal.
In some cases Celiac Disease is accompanied by other food allergies. Like I am also allergic to corn, soy, pork, nuts and wheat on top of the gluten allergy – and people don’t understand that when I say that I cannot eat ground beef or a steak if it was not grass fed. Personally I prefer not to eat it to begin with, but I went to Universal Orlando’s Mel’s Diner for lunch because I know they have gluten free buns
The employees could not understand what Celiac Disease was along with why I can’t eat the meat or cheese they serve (they wanted to charge me full price , which is completely absurd. I’m not getting the meat or the cheese – I cant eat it.
Now, you’re probably wondering why can’t I eat it, so let me put this into simple terms. What do cows, chickens, pigs and other farm raised ‘animal for food’? Genetic modified corn, soybeans, wheat and rice products (or meal). When the animal ingests this food, what do you think is in your meat? Some people can get away with eating any kind of meat with certain food allergies, but some of us cannot.
So to be on the safe side, I avoid eating meat. I have a sensitivity that just doesn’t allow me to enjoy or digest it like a person who does not have these food allergies.
So overall, I think Universal Orlando needs to rethink how they offer their products and price points in the sense of people who can’t eat what they offer, but offer alternatives that don’t fit the bill. I mean, honestly, if I’m not eating it, I’m not paying for it.
Common Sense. I walked out an bought a fruit cup.
