Like Kryptonite For Hypochondriacs

Roughly 1 in 133 Americans have Celiac disease, the rest of the Glutenphobiacs read too many “alternative” lifestyle articles.  And here’s something else, just because: quinoa just doesn’t taste that good, no matter what you say. I all but eat this stuff with a spoon, and if you don’t then, well, the answer to your question is: yes, Chuck’s bread tastes better than yours.


About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

    Having two diagnosed Celiacs in the family, I’m glad there are other ways to go than quinoa which is kind of insipid.

      My mechanic has celiac’s–he’s this rough and tough ex-boxer, kind of a badass, and you see him at the grocery store buying all this specialized, organic, gluten- and wheat-free grocery stuff. Diagnosis changed his life, though. He thought he was dying, he was so sick. I’m gently mocking the millions of otherwise healthy folks who’ve gone in for the marketing that tells us gluten in all forms is bad for everyone. The suckers.

    Haha! I looove quinoa, but I love it two ways, cooked in chicken stock and soft cheeses added at the end, or baked into a chocolate cake. The cake was pricey baking, but outstanding!
    I love gluten more than I love quinoa. High gluten bread flour FTW! 😉
