Below is a sample from Adam's Gluten Free Surprise
She talked about his special gluten free diet and about how careful he needed to be, because just a few crumbs could make him sick. She told them that even if he didn’t seem sick on the outside, gluten hurt him on the inside, causing problems the next day or even a few days later.
Another mom said, “Well, he can have the corn I brought; it’s just plain corn from a can.”
“OH!” exclaimed another helper. “I wish I knew! I would have made sure the mashed potatoes were gluten free. I think the butter I used touched a knife from some regular bread though.”
The dad who baked the pumpkin pies said, “And if I knew, I could have put some pumpkin pie filling into a small dish without a crust so Adam could enjoy it too. I would have been very careful that everything was gluten free and separate.”
After talking to Adam’s mom she realized that if she cooked the stuffing in a separate dish instead of roasting it inside the turkey, or if she asked Adam’s mom for some gluten free bread, Adam would be able to eat the turkey with everyone else. And she realized that if she made the gravy with cornstarch instead of flour, he could have eaten that too. She knew she had a lot of learning to do.
