Barilla makes gluten-free pasta. Barilla offers 1,000 other products. Barilla employs 8,000 people. Barilla owns 30 production facilities in 9 countries. How can such a large, successful company be run by such a boneheaded CEO?? Just a quick recap: Guido Barilla (their CEO) made […]Read More
So much anger in the world. Much of it justified. Let’s face it…the world is a mess out there. But sometimes…well, the anger is just misguided and misdirected. I blog so I am fair game for push back. You don’t like my Twinkies post […]Read More
I have a few recurring dreams. One is that it’s time for my final exam and I realize that I haven’t gone to class all year and I’m in full blown panic mode. This is odd in and of itself but add to it […]Read More
Today’s post is all about throwing our support behind Casey. She did not ask me to do this, but when I read her blog post yesterday (and please read it if you have a minute), I wanted to make sure she knew that there […]Read More
Did you hear the joke about the girl with cancer who may have to have one of her breasts removed? Or how about the one about the guy with MS who lost his vision in one eye? And of course there is always the […]Read More
Hi Bob. It’s me…Gluten Dude. I hope you had a nice summer. How’s the family? Business good? Ok…enough small talk. I am writing to you because I am concerned. As I’m sure you are more than aware by now, one of your products, the […]Read More
Did you know that today is Celiac Awareness Day? That’s right…our disease is so big that we get our own special day to try to spread awareness. Heck, we even get our own month, which happens to be the month of May. (And yes…there […]Read More
It’s time. It’s been a great summer. Lots of fun. Lots of friends. Lots of wining. Lots of dining. But at some point, you need to listen to your body. And mine is saying “Enough Dude!” As of yesterday, I am once again on […]Read More
Holy moly…is my inbox overstuffed. Lots of rants and lots of questions. My sincere apologies to all those who have reached out to me for help/advice and have gotten nothing but silence in return. Bad Gluten Dude. Well…really just ungodly busy Gluten Dude. But […]Read More
I’m not sure if I should laugh at this one or cry. There is a doctor…yes an actual doctor…who has written an article titled “The Home Cure for Celiac Disease”. Here is the link. The doctor’s name is Scott Saunders. He sounds quite educated […]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.
