Lady Gaga May be Gluten-Free…But Baby I Was Born This Way

August 19, 2012 | 110 Comments

Yeah…that’s right. I went there. The lamest blog post title EVER. And theoretically, I wasn’t “born” gluten-free. I was born with the celiac gene. And I haven’t been gluten-free since birth; only the last five years. So really, the title makes no sense whatsoever. […]

The Gluten Dude App: For a Better Gluten-free Life

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

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.
