the gluten dude blog
I started this blog in October of 2011. Why? I had a lot to say about living with celiac disease. And what I was mostly finding online did not align with my feelings and experiences of being gluten-free and dealing with the trials and tribulations of our fun little autoimmune disease. And while it took me a bit of time, I found my voice and an awesome community.
Over 700 blog posts and 35,000 comments later, while I may have slowed down my pace a bit, the journey continues. You can select a category or month below, use the search icon above or just browse around. Either way...enjoy and I hope it helps you in your journey.
So I was on Twitter last week when I came across a post by my friends at Celiac.com. (Note: They’re not my friends. And yes…I know Twitter is a cesspool, but it allows me to stay in touch with the celiac community.) The post […]Read More
Update on the below post. Perhaps I should have done more research before posting it. I believe in science. Dinosaurs: real. Climate change: real. Vaccines needed: real. You get the point. I try my best never to be swayed by public opinion. I’m also […]Read More
Maybe it’s just me…or perhaps it’s today’s political culture…but I just don’t find it difficult to tell the truth. More than that, I find it almost impossible to lie. Here’s an example: Dude, how old are you? I’m 43. Really? I’m 53. See? That […]Read More
They say that common etiquette means not talking about sex, religion or politics. Hmmm…I’ve already talked about sex drive, if sperm is gluten free, and gluten-free sex for only $27. I’ve also discussed if you can pray your celiac away and if a church […]Read More
There is a Twitter account called Endless Screaming. Every time he or she tweets, it’s simply: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! That’s exactly my reaction to a fellow celiac suing a Las Vegas restaurant $100,000 for causing “permanent injury” after getting glutened. I’ll say it again: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Here’s […]Read More
Dude note that has nothing to do with this post: I’m sitting at a Starbucks on the corner of 57th and 10th, watching the bevy of activity outside and just absolutely digging living in NYC. —- So one of my Dudette’s is a sophomore […]Read More
So I’ve written about beer a lot on my little website here. Search for beer on my site (https://glutendude.com/?s=beer) and you’ll find lots and lots of articles. You may say I have a writing about drinking problem. (Get it? Instead of a drinking problem? […]Read More
So I haven’t been sleeping. Like…at all. Went to bed last night at 11. Finally, at 6AM, after zero sleep, I gave up and went to work. What does this have to do with oats? Absolutely nothing. I’m just tired. Ok…oats and celiac disease. […]Read More
Hey everyone. I got the following email a few days ago. Being a teenager can be tough enough without dealing with a misunderstood disease like celiac. She’s feeling anger, frustration and even guilt that her sister was also just diagnosed. Please take a read […]Read More
So I kinda suck at self-promotion. When I was a kid, I had zero self-esteem. I mean…get rid of ALL of the self-esteem in the world, and that’s how much I had. “Why is Scott always so quiet?” “Why is Scott so shy?” Little […]Read More
Last week, I shared one of my daughter’s stories on the healing power of food. Now it’s time for my other Dudette’s story. She has had a real tough go of it since she was eight years old. Anxiety, OCD, Emetophobia (intense fear of […]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.
