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.
Well this is ugly. The Spectator magazine, around since 1828 with a paid circulation of 72,000 and a popular website, recently ran an article by one Melissa Kite titled “The dietary obnoxiousness of the Catholic Church”, with a lovely byline that reads “Gluten-free Eucharist? […]Read More
So…the Emmy’s were on last night. Did I watch them? Nope. No interest. It’s just a big celebrity circle-jerk. Jimmy Kimmel was the host. Kimmel has a history of making fun of gluten-free people. But I figured the gluten jokes have gotten old and […]Read More
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 […]Read More
Dude note: This article appears in the current issue of Simply Gluten-Free Magazine, where I have my own column. It’s a good magazine run by good people. Heck…they even turned down an advertising opportunity from Cheerios. And until March 31, get $6 off a […]Read More
Wow. Seriously…just wow. I’ve been railing against the media for four years on this blog. You’d think in those four years, things would get better. You’d think the media would realize that celiac disease is serious shit and gluten-free is nothing to make fun […]Read More

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 […]Read More
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 […]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.
