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.

Extremes are bad. In pretty much any situation, they’re bad. Extreme religion? The cause of too many wars and unnecessary deaths. Extreme politics? The cause of a dysfunctional congress. Extreme weather? The cause of much global destruction. Which brings us to today’s post. Everybody […]Read More

For the most part, it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to find out if something is gluten free or not. A scan of the ingredients usually will give you the answer. If there are some unknown chemicals or additives or colorings or flavorings […]Read More
That’s right. The Gluten Dude is taking a vacation! (Put away your tears…I’ll still be posting while I’m away.) That’s the good news. The other side of the coin is that it’s my first real vacation since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. And […]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.
