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.

If the above title were reversed, this post would actually be about sadomasochism…and wouldn’t that be a nice change of pace? But alas, we are instead talking about celiac disease. So last week was a good week in the fun department. Wednesday night, my […]

A Weak Moment: How Hunger Clouded My Judgement

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.
