Why is everything suddenly Gluten-free?
There is an actual medical condition, Celiac or Coeliac Disease, which is very serious, although fairly rare - only about 1% of people have it. People with that condition really cannot eat gluten because they have a strong immune reaction to it.
Gluten-free products are a blessing to these people, who would otherwise need to monitor their diet very carefully.
But since industry has now created all of these gluten-free products, why not make an extra buck on them by selling to people who don’t really need it? So they created a fad. And that is, most probably, what you are seeing.
It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
