What? You were expecting a post about why I’m thankful I have celiac disease? I’m thankful for a lot of things in my life…having celiac is not one of them. But there has been a silver lining in this disease. It has put me […]

To All Those Saying Celiacs Must Go Without on Thanksgiving…I Say "Stuff It"

November 25, 2013 | 29 Comments

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 […]

November 20, 2013 | 122 Comments

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 […]

Happy Birthday to the Amazing Mrs. Dude

November 15, 2013 | 20 Comments

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 […]

I received the following message yesterday. She is in a place that most of us have been at one time or another. Celiac can be a frustrating, isolating, never-ending disease. And when it’s got you by the throat, it can seem like there is […]

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 […]

Do NOT Do Business with Lou Reyes and the Gluten-Free Awareness Tour

November 5, 2013 | 32 Comments

Wow…what a dirtbag. I really tried to give Lou Reyes the benefit of the doubt. It’s just who I am. Deep down, I want to believe people are good. But after the wave of emails I’ve received in the past week about this guy, […]

The Gluten Dude App: Gluten-free just got easier!

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

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.
