At the time I was working at a group home for intellectually disabled clients, and there were several dietary restrictions including gluten and dairy sensitivities. One of my individuals wanted cookies and milk, but due to the dietary restriction could not have them. One night I was talking to my Mimi about how I wanted to make sure he had the opportunity to enjoy homeade cookies and milk like his house mates. We had brought store brought gluten free cookies, and he didn’t like them. In fact at one time he told me he hated me, because he couldn’t have the cookies he wanted.
