Ugh…the media. What a disaster of a ride it’s been with them when it comes to celiac disease. From Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Oz to Disney to the Today Show and on and on and on. Here…I do my best to take them all to task with the ultimate goal of getting people to take our disease more seriously.
I’m aware that the following post may come across as petty to some of you. No…not Lori Petty. And no…not Richard Petty either. But written out of jealousy or to get a pat on the back. I assure you this is absolutely true. Just […]Read More
I know. I know. I can already hear the comments I’ll be getting on this post. So I’ll save some of you the time and energy and say them myself: “Dude…lighten up. It’s a joke.” “You are what’s wrong with this country.” “You’re so […]Read More
Remember Elissa Goodman? Elissa is a well-known nutritionist who (supposedly) has celiac disease. She was on a podcast with Maria Menounos in August and stated emphatically that you can indeed eat gluten again even if you have celiac disease. All you need to do […]Read More
Q: What do the following 3 items have in common? I’m the mother of an 8 year old son who was diagnosed with Celiac. He was very sick by the time they figured out it was Celiac. Hair loss, neuropathy in his hands and […]Read More
I’d like to start this post by saying to Elissa that this not personal. From what I’ve read, you’ve gone through some tough times and shown real resilience so kudos to you for that. Ok…moving on. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! You […]Read More
It was a Friday afternoon and my work week was wrapping up. I was looking forward to sipping a few tequilas with friends. And then someone sent me this f***ing thing: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) (Here’s […]Read More
Saturday Kitchen is (yet another) cooking show based in the UK where viewers get to vote on which recipe will be prepared for the guest at the end of the episode. It ‘stars” chef Matt Tebbutt (I so wanted to call him Matt Tebbutthead, […]Read More
Yes…a rare late afternoon blog post. Two cups of coffee and an espresso and I’m UP! I’ll make it a quick one. So on my mobile app for the celiac community, we have a restaurant directory of over 2,600 restaurants (with more added every […]Read More
I’m going to start this rare night-time post with a disclaimer: I’m in a beyond pissy mood. Nothing seems to be going my way lately, and today I hit peak frustration. So my post may be more “colorful” than usual. You’ve been warned. I […]Read More
This is cool. Like really, really cool. Not only do we have a film that gives a realistic look at celiac (coeliac) disease, but it’s done in a creative, artistic way. The name of the film is Glutened and it is described by Hayley […]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.
