When we go out to eat, my wife’s choices are limited… she has gluten sensitivity challenges.
If a restaurant has gluten-free options, there are few. And they may not be marked as such.
We also get to pay double for the pleasure of knowing that the half-size pizza does not contain heavily-processed wheat flour.
Living in Clarendon, Texas (population 1,857) would cause even more limitations for someone with gluten issues.
Vegan? I won’t even go into that realm, but you see that the same issues apply. (There is no Ruth’s Chris Tofu House.)
Live with a wheelchair? There are not many off-the-shelf choices in the Ferrari line that will allow you to drive.
Is there a solution?
One might be for a Clarendon resident to move to the big city.
The big city resident might move closer to a Whole Foods supermarket and adjust their budget accordingly.
But basically, it’s just not fair if you fall outside the mainstream.
