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.
Gluten Dude has gone Hollywood. Ok…maybe not. It’s New York City but I’ll take it. I had the pleasure and the honor of being invited to Jennifer Esposito’s grand opening party of her Jennifer’s Way Bakery. It was few months back and it was […]Read More

After last week’s major media fail, it’s oh so nice when it’s done right. In the video above, Dr. Sanjay Gupta discusses the facts about gluten and celiac disease (yeah, I know, facts…what a concept) and talks about why the wrong people are going […]Read More
I took an awesome yoga class tonight. At the end of the class we did some deep breathing and were instructed to “inhale love and exhale gratitude.” I love that. Inhale love and exhale gratitude. Imagine if we could all do that all day […]Read More
23,000,000. That’s the number of book sales for the original South Beach Diet by Dr. Arthur Agatston. Not too shabby. I once wrote a book called The Bartender’s Handbook: Making Drinks and Making Money. I think it had about 23 sales. Very shabby. I […]Read More
So many gluten-free things we could discuss today. Should we talk about how Gwyneth Paltrow consistently talks about gluten-free, releases a gluten-free cookbook and then says she and her family eat bread and pasta? Should we talk about how 1 in 3 people are […]Read More

One step forward and two steps back. One step forward and two GIANT steps back. The story of a celiac’s life. The gluten-free “trend” has picked up some serious steam in 2013 and once again, it’s our crappy, do-anything-for-a-buck media leading the charge. This […]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.
