What I’m missing

I was shopping at Mariano’s yesterday.  There is an abundance of choices at this grocery store.  What I’m missing is an offering of gluten-free prepared foods that is satisfying.  I realize that the grocery stores can only offer items that are in the marketplace, but I would hope the choices would be expanded soon.

The freezer case has a variety of Mexican and Indian and other ethnic dishes, usually with a fairly low calorie count.  A hearty spaghetti and meat balls or chili mac has escaped my notice.  I know that there are many gluten free pastas, so I find it surprising that there aren’t more pasta-based dishes.  Lasagnas are usually made with spinach.  Is this because the food manufacturers are trying to provide people who are both gluten free and vegetarian?  I’m guessing there would be a good market for gluten free foods prepared with meat.  Or for people with a heartier appetite.

I’m hoping I’ll be able to attend the next gluten free expo and get some input from the food manufacturers.
