Yes, you can eat very, very well gluten free. In fact, once you start eating gluten free and see all the unpronounceable ingredients crammed into food that you once considered benign as good 'ole apple pie, you'll shiver at how much healthier you're eating!
While I love cooking gluten-free, I also love being able to eat out -- whether at a friend's potluck or a catered reception or a restaurant or a fast food truck stop or an airport or a street-side stand. Just last night I was at a restaurant: I ordered the chili, which I was assured was gluten free. However, the latkes (a potato pancake, usually made with potatoes and onions) I almost ordered were not -- not because the ingredients themselves contained gluten, but because -- as the waiter just happened to mention -- the oil they were fried in was also used to fry all kinds of things with breading. And this is precisely what this site is about. Eating is health, eating is culture, eating is social bonding. So, although not everyone in the world needs to eat gluten free, I believe that anyone should be able to eat gluten free everywhere in the world!
