Let me start off by saying that it’s 10:17 in the morning, this is going to be a long article (but so worth it), and I’ve had 3 cups of coffee and a smoothie. So if I don’t post this for a couple of […]

If you’ve got celiac disease, and since you are reading this post, I will assume you do, you most likely have eaten Pamela’s products at some point in your gluten-free life. If not eaten them, at least seen them on the store shelves. Here’s […]

It’s a rare afternoon blog post but my head is about to explode and writing about it not only defuses my brain cells but will help answer this question: How can a company use gluten and still label their product gluten-free and not get […]

March 23, 2022 | 4 Comments

Ok…3 things right off the bat: Remember when I used to blog 2 to 3 times per week? Yeah…so do I. So where have I been? Busy. Real busy. Most of my “celiac” time is now put toward my mobile app, social media and […]

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

December 4, 2020 | 34 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 | 5 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 […]

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

Gluten Dude: Your passport to safe gluten-free dining worldwide. Every restaurant vetted.

Discover the joy of safe and easy dining on your travels, with restaurants that prioritize gluten-free safety as much as you do. Enjoy more. Worry less.

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.
