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.

The Media’s Assault on the Gluten-Free Movement

July 8, 2015 | 33 Comments

I’m warning you ahead of time. This post will be a mish-mash of possibly incoherent thoughts. But I’ll give it a shot just the same. The media sucks. You know that. I know that. Too many of them care only about clicks and ratings […]

Fear and Misinformation – Brought to You by Udi’s

June 24, 2015 | 53 Comments

I have nothing against Udi’s. Honestly. But I do wonder who is running the show over there because they simply cannot get their sh*t together. First, they can’t seem to fix the holes in their bread so it doesn’t look like swiss cheese. Then […]

Finally…Gluten-Free Humor Done Right

May 14, 2015 | 22 Comments

Jimmy Kimmel has tried. And failed. Jimmy Fallon has tried. And failed. Joy Behar? I have no idea what she was striving to accomplish. But she definitely failed (and made herself look like a jackass to boot). Seth Myers. Jennifer Lawrence. Rachael Ray. Ryan […]

Lessons Learned…

February 5, 2015 | 44 Comments

Seven days have passed since I posted about the NASCAR Super Bowl ad. What a surreal week it has been. I have seen the good, the bad and holy crap, have I seen the ugly. With all the craziness starting to simmer down, let’s […]

A Call to NBC to Remove Their NASCAR Super Bowl Ad

January 28, 2015 | 251 Comments

This is not a rant. This is not a rave. For this post, I am using my quiet voice. Yes…I have a quiet voice. A fellow celiac notified me that NBC was running a Super Bowl ad immediately following the end of the game […]

Joy Behar: An Absolute Gluten-Free Train Wreck

January 21, 2015 | 104 Comments

My friends…there is no JOY in celiac-ville today. We will not be taking any JOY rides this week. The Morning Joe show is no longer my pride and JOY (not that it ever was.) I will not be singing JOY to the World any […]

The Worst Article Ever on Celiac Disease

November 26, 2014 | 35 Comments

Normally on Thanksgiving, I will give a shout out to some folks that I am more than thankful for. This year, while I am still blessed and so thankful for so many in my life, I’ll just save my thanks for one team of […]

You Think Gluten-Free Automatically Means Healthy? Chew on This.

November 11, 2014 | 38 Comments

So I’m at the doctor’s office last week filling out the usual 37 pages of forms that I’ve filled out 83 times before. In the waiting room, The Chew is showing on the TV. I don’t pay too much attention to it…until I hear […]

Celiac Disease. It's All in Your Head.

October 13, 2014 | 56 Comments

See what I did there? I wrote the headline to make it look like celiac disease isn’t real when I’m really talking about how celiac affects the brain. This way, we’ll see if anybody reacts to just reading the headline. I know…you don’t have […]

Enough With the Gluten-Free Haters!!

July 7, 2014 | 103 Comments

I think it’s time for a good old-fashioned “Gluten Dude Take Down”. It’s been awhile and I’m a bit out of practice, but after a month of holding my tongue as the gluten-free community got mocked, doubted and trampled upon, I can hold it […]

The Gluten Dude App: For a Better Gluten-free Life

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

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.
