Month: April 2013
Every so often, Mrs. Dude will come home from the store with a special gluten-free treat for me. She knows I try to stay away from a lot of the processed gluten-free crap, but she also knows I’m human and I occasionally miss eating […]Read More
It’s six o’clock in the morning and Mrs. Dude just pulled an embedded tick out of my scalp. Fun way to start the day. Anyway…moving on. Celiac Awareness Month does not officially start for another two days but our community has done themselves proud […]Read More
I think most of us will agree that the medical community is just a tad behind when it comes to fully understanding celiac disease symptoms. We have heard plenty of doctor horror stories to attest to this. And the internet can make things just […]Read More
Ok folks…you have got to see this. This is so bad it’s almost comical. Except it’s not. It’s one thing when The Today Show gets celiac disease totally wrong. They are so inept it’s almost to be expected at this point. But if there […]Read More
Gluten Dude has gone Hollywood. Ok…maybe not. It’s New York City but I’ll take it. I had the pleasure and the honor of being invited to Jennifer Esposito’s grand opening party of her Jennifer’s Way Bakery. It was few months back and it was […]Read More
This Gluten Free Love Story was lovingly submitted by Sue My sweetheart and I have known each other for 32 years, when I was a young mother, working as a teachers aide and he was my principal, twice my age. I had the biggest […]Read More
What a week. What a long, long week. The kind that on one side makes you weep for humanity. And yet on the other side, be amazed at our ability to deal with the worst of situations, look evil and stupidity in the eye, […]Read More
To all of you crappy media outlets out there, here’s a tip for you. If you can’t even pronounce the word “celiac” correctly, you aren’t remotely qualified to talk about our disease. So please stop. Effective immediately. You have turned gluten-free and celiac disease […]Read More
Yesterday was another day that shook me to my core. I’ve realized that my kids will never grow up in the same world that I did. And I have this sinking feeling that the aggressive nature of mankind will eventually destroy this beautiful planet […]Read More
Dude note on 04/24/15: Udi’s bread has gotten worse. Much worse. Read about it here. Last week, Gluten Free Jenna, a fellow celiac, posted the above picture of a loaf of Udi’s bread she had just bought (without the Udi’s inset…that was my special […]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
