Not Gluten Free
This one hurt. This one felt personal. They warned me. Never develop an emotional relationship with gluten-free brands. But dang…Canyon Bakehouse. Really?! Sure…we’ve had recalls before. Who can forget the Cheerios sh*tstorm, when 1.8 million boxes of gluten-free Cheerios were recalled because of wheat […]Read More
Lots to discuss this week. Some uplifting (my mobile app!), some misleading (the FDA and gluten free labeling) and some downright frustrating. And that’s where we’ll kick things off. First…a little background. Little Beet Table opened as a 100% gluten-free restaurant in 2014. I […]Read More
Who can argue with something being friendly, right? If something is user-friendly, it’s easy to use. If something is environmentally-friendly, it can help save our planet. If an apartment complex is dog-friendly, yay…my puppies are allowed! Now let’s take a look at the official […]Read More
Well…2020 is off to a nice start. We have already seen a number of products on the market that are labeled gluten-free…yet contain gluten. The FDA is ignoring everyone’s tweets regarding the situation (blog post to come). And now we have Lisa Ensor, who […]Read More
Update on the below post. Perhaps I should have done more research before posting it. I believe in science. Dinosaurs: real. Climate change: real. Vaccines needed: real. You get the point. I try my best never to be swayed by public opinion. I’m also […]Read More
So I’ve written about beer a lot on my little website here. Search for beer on my site (https://glutendude.com/?s=beer) and you’ll find lots and lots of articles. You may say I have a writing about drinking problem. (Get it? Instead of a drinking problem? […]Read More
So I haven’t been sleeping. Like…at all. Went to bed last night at 11. Finally, at 6AM, after zero sleep, I gave up and went to work. What does this have to do with oats? Absolutely nothing. I’m just tired. Ok…oats and celiac disease. […]Read More
First watch this (sorry about the crappy quality; not nearly as crappy as the quality of Dr. Oz’s show I assure you.) (Can’t see the video. Click here.) Now repeat after me: Spelt is NOT gluten-free. Spelt is NOT gluten-free. Spelt is NOT gluten-free. […]Read More
(Dude note: The following appears in the current issue of Simply Gluten-Free magazine, a magazine that will not take Cheerios’ advertising dollars. Please check them out.) When I was diagnosed will celiac disease in 2007, I had never heard of the word “gluten” before. […]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.
