enough about gluten free

We need more focus on the disease and less on the diet

January 13, 2023 | 14 Comments

Did you know that today is National Gluten-Free Day? No really…it’s a thing. So what is on my FB and IG feeds, where I follow a lot of folks/groups with celiac disease? Same as every other day: food, food, food and more food. Except […]

What? A Gluten Dude blog post??? Yeah…sarcasm duly noted and warranted. While I have still been an active advocate on social media, my blogging has been sh*t. Time and focus have been an issue the past year for various reasons. But I’m back…and hopefully […]

If you were looking for a follow up to the Elissa Goodman podcast catastrophe, not to worry. I’m not done with her by a long shot. But this post takes precedence. I actually should have written about this topic weeks ago but between my […]

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

Eat out with less stress. Find GF options at airports. Save money on gluten-free food. Locate glute-free beer. Get support, make connections and more.

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.
