Spend More Money with Your Gluten-Free Lifestyle

Tyler Coates and Mikala Bierma have three hot tips for living a gluten-free lifestyle (they are great, and you will laugh).

But just because they’re having the time of their lives, please know that life without gluten is not all fun and games. Billfold BFF and anti-glutite Matt Powers explains: “When you’re gluten-free you pay way more for things that taste way worse.” LIKE WHAT? “I don’t even know how much a six-pack of Budweiser costs [LS: like, $6-ish], but the gluten-free equivalent is 11 bucks.” AND YOU DRINK THAT? “Everyday after work! You still get that nice alcohol tang, the crisp freshness, but it tastes like terrible college beer. Young college beer.” WHAT ABOUT PIZZA? “If you can find a place that does slices, it’s like $4. Otherwise you’re paying $17 for a little personal pan pizza.” IS IT DELICIOUS? “The best slice of gluten-free pizza I’ve ever had, I took one bite and I thought it was so incredible, and then the person who was with me, who could eat gluten, took a bite and said it was terrible.”

Several years back I had a roommate that was gluten-intolerant and if we went shopping together the grocery bill was pretty steep, though we did manage to find some tasty offerings. A loaf of bread might run $7 or $8 (from the gloriously-named Silly Yak bakery) but the greatest product I came across was RP’s gluten free pasta.

One of my closest friends has celiac disease. Her favorite gluten-free snack is hummus and apples. It sounds so strange, I know, but it really is delicious! Also, gluten-free beer is revolting.

I blame the Mesopotamians. What were they even thinking, domesticating wheat like that.
