    The following comment was shared on Instagram:

    A celiac reaction will likely cause 48 hours of diarrhea, cramping, dehydration, and/or vomiting. Extreme weakness, headaches, body aches, hives, etc….it’s like the flu + food poisoning.

    The “D” is extreme & impossible to control. My child and husband are both Celiac. We have had to pull over on the side of the road, it’s awful.

    Here is what would be helpful:
    1) Offer gift certificates instead of providing food.
    2) reduce cost of
    Event and do not serve food.
    3) compile a list of local restaurants that offer gluten free menus and keep handy.

    Here are some reliable GFree options (from Rome, Ga):
    1) Jimmy John’s lettuce wrap sub
    2) Mexican restaurants with corn tortillas (no chips due to cross contamination 🙁
    3) Chik Fil A grilled chicken w/ Gluten Free bun
    4) Outback steak &
    salad, no seasonings on steak and no salad dressing.

    Hope that is helpful!
