Month: May 2013
As we wind down Celiac Awareness Month (and what a month it’s been!), there is one aspect of our disease that seems to get overlooked far too often: the role the medical community plays. Or perhaps I should say the lack of the role […]Read More
Kudos to the gluten-free community once again. After Hoda completely insulted the entire gluten-free community, our community rose to the occasion and absolutely bombarded The Today Show on Twitter and on Facebook. The comments on their Facebook page were exceptionally gratifying. Whereas Disney had […]Read More
The Today Show has done it again. Their infatuation with, and their alienation of, the gluten free community continues. We’ve got a target on our backs folks. First, they called celiac disease trendy. Then they called us picky eaters. Then…well…they did this. And now, […]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.
