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.

Dear Gluten Dude: I am Gluten Intolerant. What Should I do When Eating Out?

June 8, 2012 | 29 Comments

First, a quick Dude health update: I went to see my GI yesterday. He says something is definitely going on, but it is not necessarily the celiac. My blood work from a few months back showed no gluten antibodies, so it’s not hidden gluten […]

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.
