Dude note added 11/02/13: It seems the Celiac Awareness Tour is in the habit of ripping people off. Please think twice before engaging with them. Read about it here. This is not one of those things that will keep me up at night. I […]Read More
It’s been a great summer. Lots of fun. Lots of friends. And even though it’s gone by so quickly…at the same time it’s been a long summer. My health has kinda sucked. And as the summer winds down, I’m dealing with some guilt about […]Read More
The following note, which was sent to me privately and posted with the Mom’s permission, needs no introduction. Please just read it and share it. This is the side of celiac disease the public eye does not see. And we need them to see […]Read More
Yes…I just went there. No…I am not curious for my own behalf (not that there’s anything wrong with it). The request came from somebody on my Facebook page. Her name is…oh wait…I probably shouldn’t share her name. 😉 Anyway, here is how the conversation […]Read More
A few days ago I wrote a blog post titled “Dear Bart & Judy: Your Cookies Aren’t Gluten-Free“. The essence of the post was that they labeled their cookies gluten-free and then added “May contain wheat” on the back of the package because they […]Read More
We need to be our own best advocates. I’ve been saying that for years. We simply cannot trust that the doctors word is final. Because far too often…it’s wrong. Especially when it comes to celiac disease. If you have not already, check out the […]Read More
I love how our community calls BS out. And I love that fact that they notify me so I can notify the masses. Case in point…I received the following message the other day from a fellow celiac: Hi Dude – I know you’ve had […]Read More
I’ve got a laundry list of items I want to blog about. I haven’t touched upon the FDA ruling yet. There’s the new gluten-free dating site. A new “Gluten Free Vodka” is being marketed…even though all vodka is gluten free. The Today Show AGAIN […]Read More
Still having that occasional slice of bread? Can’t resist having that cookie “just this one time”? Have you convinced yourself that a “gluten-removed beer” is just as safe as a “gluten-free beer“? Well then step right up. You’re now officially a prime candidate for […]Read More
Where oh where does the time go? It’s been many months since I posted a reader’s celiac rant. I know somebody who has a friend with celiac disease. But they still eat gluten sometimes because “she must not have it as bad as you […]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
