Karma and Gluten Free Desserts in NYC

By January 14, 2015December 15th, 2015Everything Autism

Orsay in the Upper East Side have the most incredible desserts. My favourite, lychee butter cream, fresh raspberries and a rose petal meringue macaroon. It’s so delicious I had it twice in a row. But most importantly it’s GLUTEN FREE. I was diagnosed with Celiac two years

ago which means I can not eat anything that contains gluten or even use shampoos or creams that have wheat protein. My first knowledge of a ‘Gluten Free Diet’ was almost eight years ago when I was working with young children with Autism many of whom were on a gluten and casein free diet. ‘Oh it’s only a biscuit nothing terrible is going to happen’. Well Karma caught up with me and ‘It’s only a biscuit’ leads to abdominal discomfort, bloating, dark circles under the eyes, joint pain and depression. If you are a little one with Autism that will definitely be a setting event which will affect how you do that day in therapy. Did my life change? Yes absolutely and for the better.
