As much as I (we) hate having celiac disease, I’m happy to at least have some diagnosis that explains my issues. Well…most of my issues anyway 🙂 But there are tons of people out there who do not have the benefit of a celiac […]Read More
Question: What do Dr. Suess and Dr. Drew have in common? Answer: One of them is a fictional character that has no concept of what celiac disease is…and the other one is Dr. Suess. Just when I started to give the media credit for […]Read More
I always rail on the media when it comes to…well…pretty much everything. But in this case, they got it right. Mostly right anyway. Above is an episode of Fox Files from a few weeks back that highlighted Jennifer Esposito’s battle with celiac disease. Here’s […]Read More
You’ll get a few things from watching the following video. One…a good amount of adult language (you’ve been warned). Two…a great laugh. Three…a sense of how I’ve been the past 4 days. Yes, I got glutened. Yes, it was during my weekend in the […]Read More
Sometimes it’s hard for a celiac to feel thankful. I get emails…every day…from fellow celiacs who I know aren’t feeling very thankful. They’re angry. They’re resentful. They just want their life back the way it was. I get it. I’ve been there. We’ve all […]Read More
I love Mrs. Dude’s birthday…more than my own even. On my birthday, I simply get older. But on her birthday, we’ve made it an unofficial annual tradition to go to one of my favorite places in the world for the weekend: New York City. […]Read More
How can a night be so delightful yet so sucky? It’s simple. I have celiac disease. Yesterday was Mrs. Dude’s birthday and we wanted to do something different. As much as we love our favorite sushi restaurant, going to the same place time after […]Read More
The general population just doesn’t understand celiac disease and what it can do to those inflicted. Not that I blame them. It doesn’t get the media coverage that other diseases get and because the disease itself is food-related, many on the outside don’t take […]Read More
If the above title were reversed, this post would actually be about sadomasochism…and wouldn’t that be a nice change of pace? But alas, we are instead talking about celiac disease. So last week was a good week in the fun department. Wednesday night, my […]Read More
Life is very good. But life is also hard. Life can be stressful. And life is just way too busy! We only rent our time on this planet and yet I find most of my energy put toward “dealing” with life more so than […]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.

I'm all ears
