That’s right…it’s time for my first recipe post EVER. We celebrated our first Thanksgiving yesterday. Why yesterday? Long story short: Mrs. Dude is Jewish and I’m Catholic so the tradition has always been we spend Thanksgiving with her family and Christmas with mine. But […]

What are the Legal Options When a Divorced Father Intentionally Feeds His Celiac Child Gluten?

November 22, 2013 | 39 Comments

Divorce is ugly. I get it. But I never understood why any parent would ever, and I mean EVER, take it out on his or her own children. When you become a parent, your number one job is to protect that child. Period. Which […]

Another day…another blog post where I need to defend my fellow celiacs from the media whores who keep piling on. Watch the video above (or here). This may be about as bad as I’ve seen. And I didn’t want to do this today. I’m […]

November 19, 2013 | 213 Comments

I had a dream last night. I was at a gluten-free convention. This one booth had two different rice dishes set up for people to taste. I grabbed a fork and excitedly took a few bites of one of the dishes. Only after I […]

Mrs. Dude turns XX today. We are celebrating by taking our Dudette, who broke her arm on Wednesday, in for elbow surgery. Yeah…good times. But I didn’t want the day to pass without Mrs. Dude knowing that I’d be lost without her. That my […]

Let's Name Our Glutened Alter-Ego. Hi…I'm Hank. What's Your Name??

November 11, 2013 | 52 Comments

For years, Mrs. Dude has been trying to come up with a name for me when I get glutened (besides the typical curse words she deservedly calls me under her breath). Well…after convincing her that Breaking Bad is the best thing since sliced bread […]

Dear Media: Please Shut the Hell Up

November 8, 2013 | 46 Comments

It’s official…we’re a punchline. We’re whiny. We’re difficult. We’re privileged. But most of all…we’re a joke. Gluten-free is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Who to blame? Where do I start??? I blame the idiotic marketing companies who have turned gluten-free into a […]

Gluten Dude: Your passport to safe gluten-free dining worldwide. Every restaurant vetted.

Discover the joy of safe and easy dining on your travels, with restaurants that prioritize gluten-free safety as much as you do. Enjoy more. Worry less.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

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.
