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 So Sorry Our Disease is Such an Inconvenience For You

February 20, 2014 | 201 Comments

It never ends. It seriously never ends. The constant ignorance out there and the constant need to defend ourselves about our disease and other food intolerances. What set me off this time? An utterly ridiculous article on Huff Post titled “Why Do Your Kid’s […]

Hey Rachael Ray…On a 30 Minute Gluten-Free Cooking Show, Couldn't You Have Mentioned Celiac Disease Just Once?

January 27, 2014 | 65 Comments

Here’s a question for you: How much responsibility does the media bear in promoting celiac awareness? Maybe “promoting celiac awareness” is the wrong terminology. Maybe it should be “how much responsibility does the media bear in connecting gluten-free to a serious health issue?” Gluten-free […]

Are You Sick of "Gluten-Free"?

December 29, 2013 | 51 Comments

Gluten-free is everywhere. You know that. I know that. It’s quite the buzzword. Frankly…I’m sick of the word. Oh…I love it in the sense that it keeps us safe. I love seeing it on the back of a package when I’m scrambling for something […]

Who says we’re not making a difference! It’s so cool not only when we make our voices heard, but when we can generate a complete shift in attitude from one of the largest companies in the world. Here’s a quick recap for those not […]

Are We Hurting Our Own Cause?

December 18, 2013 | 77 Comments

This is not a call to digital arms. I don’t want everyone swarming Jimmy Kimmel’s Facebook and Twitter pages with angry messages. (But if you still want to hit Fallon’s for his idiotic skit, I’m all for it.) This post is not about him…it’s […]

Jimmy Fallon…What Did We Ever Do To You?

November 20, 2013 | 122 Comments

Another day…another blog post where I need to defend my fellow celiacs from the media whores who keep piling on. Watch the video above (or here). This may be about as bad as I’ve seen. And I didn’t want to do this today. I’m […]

Dear Media: Please Shut the Hell Up

November 8, 2013 | 46 Comments

It’s official…we’re a punchline. We’re whiny. We’re difficult. We’re privileged. But most of all…we’re a joke. Gluten-free is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Who to blame? Where do I start??? I blame the idiotic marketing companies who have turned gluten-free into a […]

Celiacs Are All Nuts Folks

October 22, 2013 | 51 Comments

I thought long and hard about writing this post, as it deals with another “celiac isn’t a real disease” article somebody on Facebook sent to me. I’m very aware of linking too much negativity with our disease and the last thing I want to […]

Barilla Makes Gluten Free Pasta. They Also Just Made a Huge Mistake.

September 27, 2013 | 79 Comments

Barilla makes gluten-free pasta. Barilla offers 1,000 other products. Barilla employs 8,000 people. Barilla owns 30 production facilities in 9 countries. How can such a large, successful company be run by such a boneheaded CEO?? Just a quick recap: Guido Barilla (their CEO) made […]

Who's a Better Celiac Spokesperson: Elizabeth Hasselbeck or Dr. Peter Green?

July 19, 2013 | 36 Comments

Just watch the following video and you tell me who you’d rather be representing the celiac community. Elizabeth Hasselbeck says gluten-free is good for everyone and we should be “replacing” our old diet with the same gluten-free foods. Dr. Peter Green, noted celiac expert, […]

I've Also Got a Book

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.
