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.
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 […]Read More
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 […]Read More
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, […]Read More

Kudos to the gluten-free community once again. After Hoda completely insulted the entire gluten-free community, our community rose to the occasion and absolutely bombarded The Today Show on Twitter and on Facebook. The comments on their Facebook page were exceptionally gratifying. Whereas Disney had […]Read More
The Today Show has done it again. Their infatuation with, and their alienation of, the gluten free community continues. We’ve got a target on our backs folks. First, they called celiac disease trendy. Then they called us picky eaters. Then…well…they did this. And now, […]Read More
Two emails I received yesterday regarding the Disney and Chelsea Handler debacles really hit home. Here’s the first one: That people howl with laughter at skits portraying pancakes being thrown at someone whining “Gluten! Gluten!” is so deeply disturbing, I find it hard to […]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.
