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.
Can I get a Woot Woot for the gluten-free community? C’mon…let me hear it. Woot Woot!!! And that my friends is the sweet sound of a small victory. See…we are making a difference in our gluten-free corner of the world. Rachael Ray has issued […]Read More
Dear Gluten Dude, First off, and I know you get this a lot, I like your blog. I don’t know what else to say……it helps me a bunch though. Anyway, I am a college student now and I’ve had celiac for the past few […]Read More
So a few days ago, we talked about Gluten-Free Love Stories and since then I’ve received some fantastic, heartwarming stories of how celiac/gluten has brought people together. I can’t wait to post them next month. But today, we have something quite the opposite. It […]Read More
We all get angry at celiac disease at times. That’s why I allow people to send in their celiac rants. I think it’s real important not to keep things bottled up inside. The idea is to let them vent and then hopefully they can […]Read More
Wow…check out the following email I received yesterday. It is honest, sad and scary all wrapped into one. It is from a long-time restaurant server who spent years not taking celiac disease seriously for her customers. She is now being tested for celiac disease. […]Read More

First of all, I apologize for being so far behind to everyone who has reached out to me for guidance. My inbox is overflowing and I’m doing my best to keep up. This blog is my labor of love, but sometimes it has to […]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.

I'm all ears
