Number 7: Develop Empathy
Develop Empathy! You discover what it feels like to be in the minority when you decline the restaurant rolls, birthday cupcakes, “Casual Friday” office pizza, game-day beer or doughnuts. It results in the determination to be inclusive in a variety of situations, not all relating to food.
It’s funny…I’ve been gluten free for about 9 years, but my friends just now started to notice. I feel much less in the minority since gluten-free has gone mainstream.
