Wow. Seriously…just wow. I’ve been railing against the media for four years on this blog. You’d think in those four years, things would get better. You’d think the media would realize that celiac disease is serious shit and gluten-free is nothing to make fun […]Read More
There are weeks when being a celiac advocate, or any kind of advocate I would think, can be a total drag. You put yourself out there and get very little in return. And there are weeks like this one, when it ain’t so bad. […]Read More
First things first today. Happy Birthday Bruce!!! 66 and going strong. My dad had one foot in the grave at 66 and yet Bruce is still playing 3 hour concerts. It goes to show that taking care of your body and doing something you […]Read More

Jerk: a contemptibly naive, fatuous, foolish, or inconsequential person. Given the two options above, would you rather be considered a) […]Read More
A rare Sunday post I know. But did you know that today is Celiac Awareness Day? No…really…there’s such a thing. Pretty cool. Anyway, I couldn’t let the day go by without acknowledging this thing called celiac disease. But rather than me blather on and […]Read More
What a bizarre and uncomfortable night out I had last Friday. Let me rephrase that. I had a great time with the people I was with, but as far as the celiac stuff is concerned? Total Twilight Zone. Before the night started, Mrs. Dude […]Read More
Life is all about balance. We work hard, we play hard. We eat, we exercise. You break the law, you pay the consequences (right Kim Davis.) We have Democrats and Republicans. Peanut butter and jelly. Tom and Jerry. Elliot and Mr. Robot. Tyler Durden […]Read More
You better believe I put the question marks after the word “love” in my post title. Do I love my disease? Heck no. I pretty much detest it. It’s a constant unwanted companion in my life. That being said, it’s time to shed some […]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.
