I hate celiac. You hate celiac. We all hate celiac. With all that pent up anger, people need a place to vent. Well…I invite you to lie on the Dude’s couch (figuratively speaking) and spew away. I’m starting a new feature called “Celiac Rant […]Read More
So last week, I met with a doctor who is now my primary care physician. Gave her my recent symptoms: exhaustion, headaches, stomach aches, etc. But also went over my medical history (celiac, bladder cancer, pulmonary embolisms) and she was quite perplexed as to […]Read More
Ok…The Gluten Dude is jumping into the product review business. Well, I wouldn’t really call it a business ’cause, you know, I’m not making any money on it or anything. But lately I’ve been getting samples sent to me. It’s pretty cool. But I […]Read More
I was more than blessed enough to be married already when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I can’t imagine dating while dealing with the food issues we’ve got to deal with. As Mrs. Dude says jokingly (I think)…”Good luck finding somebody who will […]Read More

Who I am. And who I'm not.
I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.
I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
