Eating “gluten-free” may not be enough when it comes to your celiac disease. I discovered this the hard way after suffering for many years after my diagnosis, even though I was 100% GF. Feeling the same way? This section is for you.
First of all, a belated Happy Celiac Awareness month. I do believe we’ve made progress in the past years of 1) getting our disease out in the open more; and 2) reducing the number of idiotic gluten-free jokes. I had a friend come visit […]Read More
Last week, I shared one of my daughter’s stories on the healing power of food. Now it’s time for my other Dudette’s story. She has had a real tough go of it since she was eight years old. Anxiety, OCD, Emetophobia (intense fear of […]Read More
Two things you need to know up front: This may be a long post, but it’s important so please stick with me. (Even if you’re not interested, it took me about 5 hours to write so just humor me.) The Celiac Disease Foundation is […]Read More
Time for some serious changes. Why? Let me explain, self-interview style. Dude…what’s going on? I had a really fun summer. It’s October. Could you let me finish? Sorry…carry on. As I was saying…I had a really fun summer. But it wasn’t the healthiest of […]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.
