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.

Dear Elle: About Your Awful Gluten-Free Cartoon…

May 25, 2016 | 57 Comments

Dude Update: So after 9 hours of getting SLAMMED by the celiac community (take a bow folks), Elle has completely removed the post from both their Instagram and Facebook accounts (so my links below probably won’t work now). Seen by millions and yet no […]

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 […]

The Gluten Dude App: Gluten-free just got easier!

Eat out with less stress. Find GF options at airports. Save money on gluten-free food. Locate glute-free beer. Get support, make connections and more.

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.
