Being gluten-free always comes with its challenges, but one place where you can often feel pretty alone is at work. Lunches ordered by non-GF office managers, birthday cake, and plenty of other foods that can make you feel just a little left out. Well we feel you. Check out this list of faces that you’ve probably made at the office more than once.
1. When someone brings in doughnuts for the whole office and you can’t have one.
Great. I hope you enjoy that.
2. When your boss decides to get pizza for lunch on Friday and forgets to order one with gluten-free crust.
It’s okay. I don’t need food. Or whatever.
3. When you bring in muffins for your department and no one realizes they’re gluten-free.
Use this Simple Mills Muffin and Cake Almond Flour Mix and you too can be as cool as Ash.
4. When you realize the quiet guy in IT is gluten-free too.
Instant go-to snack buddy.
5. When your work BFF makes you cookies for your birthday and remembered to make them gluten-free.
ALL THE HUGS.
6. When 5 p.m. hits and everyone decides to celebrate with a drink…and all they have is wheat beer.
Now not only do I get to watch YOU all get drunk, but I can’t have anything to make it less embarrassing.
7. When the annual company party comes around and you get the email asking what meal you want…and there’s no gluten-free option.
So I guess that’s a turkey sandwich made of turkey and lettuce and tomato then.
8. When your cute co-worker in accounting offers you the banana bread they made because they remembered you liked bananas and you have to say no.
We could have had it AAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL
9. When you start seeing gluten-free snacks in the office kitchen.
Someone’s looking to get a great peer review. You got it.
Or you could be that person – just order literally anything from here.
10. When you realize that just because you might be outnumbered, being on a gluten free diet in an office doesn’t have to suck.
