Gluten-free is so 2010.

Gluten-free is soooo 2010. If you’re not gluten-free by now, you’re not cool. Even Domino’s has a gluten-free pizza crust. Get with the program.

You have to go out of your way to find something at the supermarket that has gluten in it. Let’s be honest; you are purposely trying to find gluten and put it into your cart just to be a rebel.

Would you like me to send you a fax instead of an email next?

Since everything from Cheerios to Pasta is already marked ‘gluten-free’, perhaps there should be a ‘CONTAINS REAL WHEAT GLUTEN!’ marking.

Business opportunity: create a certification with a ‘CRWG’ symbol, making it easier, and hopefully trendier, for gluten-eating holdouts to stand united.

No, gluten-free is mainstream now. It’s old news.

At this point, if you want to be seen as trendy or hip in the health and wellness scene, you can’t even be Paleo anymore, because Paleo and Crossfit have been around for too long. They have Fortune 500 corporate sponsors.

You’ll need to either go Keto, or Plant Based.

Except, they’re not really new, either; Keto has been around since at least the 1920’s. Plant Based used to be called Vegan in the 1990’s. Remember that?

Maybe it would be cool to try and bring back Atkins. I think that was ‘high fat – low carb’. Didn’t that work for awhile?

Wait, isn’t that the same thing as Paleo? And Keto?

This is very confusing. Now I don’t even know what’s cool.


I hope the above made you chuckle a bit. That was not dietary advice. Just having some fun today.

For almost ten years, I have enjoyed being the subject of a few gluten-free jokes. They usually come paired with love or curiosity. Today was just my turn 🙂

Your health is of the utmost importance to me, you, your family, and community. It is quite the serious matter, but it should definitely not make you miserable or bored. You can laugh about it a little.

About trends:

The common threads between all nutrition trends are that: they’ve been around for longer than they’ve been trendy; they all work for a significantly sized group of people; they all work for people who are going from zero to one; and, finally, you may – or may not – fit into one of those groups.

Don’t follow trends. Follow your gut.
