Dear Gluten Dude

I get emails. Lots and lots of emails. People looking for answers. People sharing their stories. People asking if I’m single. Just kidding about that last one. I do my best to reply to every email and I post ones that may ring a chord with the community.

Dear Gluten Dude: Please Help My Parents Understand My Celiac Disease

Dear Gluten Dude: Where Do I Look For Hidden Gluten??

March 26, 2013 | 85 Comments

One of the many, many frustrating things about celiac disease is that you can get glutened and you can have no friggin’ idea where it came from. It happened to me last month and though I’m almost recovered, I still have no idea how […]

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

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.
