Eating Out

Eating out with celiac disease can be an adventure in fear and trepidation. And many restaurants don’t make it any easier. Is this section, I cover who does it right, who does it wrong and everything in between.

Eating Out with Celiac? It’s ok NOT TO EAT. Really.

May 10, 2021 | 32 Comments

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 […]

If you are on Twitter, you know there are a number of ads placed within your feed. It’s crazy (and when I say crazy, I mean scary) how tailored the ads are to their audiences. Must be the chip implanted in me when I […]

Remember when Domino’s came out with a gluten-free crust in 2012? Refresh your memory here. They marketed it to the gluten-free/celiac communities, but then added a disclaimer that it may not be safe. But then the National Foundation for Celiac Disease partnered with them […]

What Recourse Do We Have When a Restaurant Lies to Us?

June 6, 2019 | 11 Comments

Maybe it’s just me…or perhaps it’s today’s political culture…but I just don’t find it difficult to tell the truth. More than that, I find it almost impossible to lie. Here’s an example: Dude, how old are you? I’m 43. Really? I’m 53. See? That […]

I've Got an App

I've Also Got a Book

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.
