June 1, 2012 | 159 Comments

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.
