When I am inundated with emails from the community, it becomes mailbag time.
It’s 2021 (or the 14th month of 2020 depending how you look at it) and we still have doctors who have their head up their arse when it comes to celiac disease. How far up you ask? Here’s an email I received the other […]Read More
To summarize the end of Celiac Awareness Month (the good, the bad, the ugly – and as always, there was all three), I was going to write a poem. Why? I like writing poems. I wrote one to summarize CAW a few years back […]Read More
Dude note: Five emails per day for four days. Here’s part 4. ——- I sit crying from cross contamination again. Hershey syrup made me sick. Most my co-workers don’t get it. My husband is dairy intolerant, he doesn’t fully get it. I have celiac, […]Read More
Dude note: Five emails per day for four days. Here’s part 3. ——- Soooooooooooooooooooo, I was diagnosed with celiac in late October 2016. I spent the next 6 months receiving treatment from a naturopath. I went and had my colonoscopy/endoscopy and the internist didn’t […]Read More
Dude note: Five emails per day for four days. Here’s part 2. ——- Dude…I am freaking out. I was diagnosed with celiac 3 years ago. My 14 yr old daughter is traveling to Atlanta from Washington state for a school competition. I am going […]Read More
Dude note: I’m overwhelmed with all of your emails asking for support. I mean that in both a good way and a bad way. I’m overwhelmed that you would feel comfortable reaching out to me. But I’m overwhelmed in the sense that I now […]Read More
What does an envelope say when you lick it? Nothing. It just shuts up. Did you hear the one about the letter without any stamps? You wouldn’t get it. What starts with a P, ends with an E, and has a million letters in […]Read More
I currently have 4,203 emails in my Gluten Dude inbox. No…these are not all reader emails (but a lot of them are!). I also get an email whenever someone leaves a comment on my site. And oddly enough, my inbox also includes one from […]Read More

It’s six in the morning and I’ve been up for 4 hours already. Yeah…sleep has not been my friend lately. Before I go grab my 13th cup of coffee, let’s do a quick mailbag. Hey Dude! (You ROCK!!) I am your redheaded Celiac sister […]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
