I’ve had celiac disease for over 14 years and I am still susceptible to bad judgment. I don’t know if that says a lot about the disease, or a lot about me. But let me set the stage for what happened this past weekend. […]Read More
I know. I know. I can already hear the comments I’ll be getting on this post. So I’ll save some of you the time and energy and say them myself: “Dude…lighten up. It’s a joke.” “You are what’s wrong with this country.” “You’re so […]Read More
I posted about Glory Days Grill last week and how they have changed some things in their kitchen to the possible detriment to the celiac community. You can read that post HERE. But here is a quick summary. In the past few weeks, I […]Read More
True Story: I had a friend was a big baseball player back in high school. He could throw that speedball by you, make you look like a fool boy. Saw him the other night at this roadside bar I was walking in, he was […]Read More
Another story of a “gluten-free” company putting profit over people. Color me surprised. This time it is Real Good Foods. Who is Real Good Foods you say? Let’s start with their mission statement, taken directly from their website: “Founded in 2016, Real Good Foods […]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.
