It might sound like I'm heading out on a picnic with the kids, but no. I'm heading to Citronelle for dinner.
A year ago, I had to give up all dairy products, along with some other foods, to keep from getting sick. Now, I approach dining out like I'm about to be dropped by helicopter into a desolate wilderness and forced to survive on my own wits. And Twizzlers.
Instead of Man vs. Wild, it's Man (er, Woman) vs. Menu.
Every day, more adults learn they have food sensitivities that, while not necessarily life-threatening, can have debilitating consequences. It's hard to alter lifelong eating habits. Before, I rarely gave a thought to the laundry list of possible ingredients in restaurant food. I found picky eaters annoying. Now, I'm one of them. A killjoy.
