Normally on Thanksgiving, I will give a shout out to some folks that I am more than thankful for. This year, while I am still blessed and so thankful for so many in my life, I’ll just save my thanks for one team of […]Read More
Dude note: As I’m writing this post, I just popped open a pre-Walking Dead Experimental Ale from the good folks at Ground Breaker. All I can say is…oh my. Anyway…I’ve had celiac disease 7 years now (yay me!) In those 7 years, I have […]Read More
Mrs. Dude and I had the honor of being invited to a wedding in Brooklyn, NY this past weekend. The drive in was simple but as we were approaching Brooklyn, it dawned on me that I forgot to pack any pants and I thought…well […]Read More
So today I was gonna post an email I received recently about a fellow celiac who is really struggling. But it’s a heavy email and I thought, “C’mon Dude, it’s Friday. Let’s end the week on a somewhat humorous note.” But what could I […]Read More
So I’m at the doctor’s office last week filling out the usual 37 pages of forms that I’ve filled out 83 times before. In the waiting room, The Chew is showing on the TV. I don’t pay too much attention to it…until I hear […]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.
