When it comes to celiac disease, you need a support system. I am stunned of all of the emails I get from people who just don’t have it. Spouses not caring, parents not taking precautions; friends intentionally glutening people cause they don’t “believe” in celiac disease. It makes me sad.
“There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of humans, are created, strengthened and maintained.” – Winston Churchill I am doubly blessed when it comes to family life. I was […]Read More
Sorry for the delay folks. We’ve been in polar vortex hell. The last ice storm knocked out power out for 5 days. It got to 38 degrees INSIDE the Dude Ranch. Grateful for friends and family for the hot food, cold beer and warm […]Read More
While I love being a sounding board for people’s celiac rants, it saddens me that I still receive so many of these. Today’s rant comes from a fellow celiac whose ill father simply doesn’t give any credence to our disease. Now where have we […]Read More
Hey folks. Sorry for the five day layoff. The last thing I remember is gnawing on a turkey leg Thanksgiving evening, feeling the tryptophan kick in and the next thing I know…it’s Tuesday. Just a little levity to start a serious topic. Last November […]Read More
Divorce is ugly. I get it. But I never understood why any parent would ever, and I mean EVER, take it out on his or her own children. When you become a parent, your number one job is to protect that child. Period. Which […]Read More

Did you know that today is Celiac Awareness Day? That’s right…our disease is so big that we get our own special day to try to spread awareness. Heck, we even get our own month, which happens to be the month of May. (And yes…there […]Read More
I received the following email and if nothing else, I thought we could help a fellow celiac out and have some fun at the same time. Hey Gluten Dude…I am a 33 year old Type 1 diabetic, Mom to 2 beautiful munchkins, and a […]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.

I'm all ears
