Which Meal Delivery Services Offer Gluten-free Food? And are they Celiac-Safe?

July 23, 2021 | 22 Comments

I use to love dinner time as a kid. I’d come home from school wondering what my mom had planned (this is before she got a job when I was 13). If I smelled spaghetti sauce, I was in high heaven. If I smelled […]

The Canyon Bakehouse recall. What happened & what’s next?

December 4, 2020 | 32 Comments

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 […]

Little Beet Table’s New ‘Food Philosophy’

August 24, 2020 | 4 Comments

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 […]

what does gluten-friendly mean?

Gluten-FRIENDLY Brownie Mix? Gluten-FRIENDLY Biscuits? No GM. Just No.

February 5, 2020 | 6 Comments

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 […]

No Lisa…European Flour is NOT Celiac-Safe

January 9, 2020 | 9 Comments

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 […]

Pizza, GF Influencers & the Celiac Community

June 28, 2019 | 9 Comments

Two quick notes regarding the title of this post: 1) It took me way to long to come up with it…and I still think it stinks. 2) The word “influencers” makes my skin crawl. Can we proceed now? Great. Today we are talking about […]

Cheerios, Weed Killer and Putting the Customer First

June 13, 2019 | 5 Comments

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 […]

Tests Reveal: Gluten-removed Beer is NOT SAFE FOR THOSE WITH CELIAC DISEASE

January 14, 2019 | 15 Comments

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? […]

Stop Eating (Non Certified Gluten-Free) Oats! Here is Why…

January 11, 2019 | 17 Comments

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. […]

April 13, 2018 | 8 Comments

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. […]

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.
