I’m not much of a dieter (read: I don’t like being told what to do/eat), so when I first heard of the Whole30, I really didn’t think anything of it. My roommate, Grace, has been focusing more on her diet and identifying food sensitivities due to some health issues she’s been trying to address since we moved in together.
She’s been gluten-free for roughly a year and a half, and ipso facto—since we both love cooking together—generally so have I. Her family jokes about how supportive I’ve been, but—to be perfectly honest—it’s never been a big deal to me, and it was way easier than I ever expected. These days, I just get my gluten from out-of-the-house sources. I just inherited the pseudo-GF diet, so I’ll let her write the article about doing Richmond GF.
