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.
As I clear some St. Patty’s Day cobwebs, thought it might be a good day for a Dear Gluten Dude. Today’s letter comes from a fellow celiac who has moved to Hawaii with her husband and they are having a hard time making friends […]Read More
Dear Gluten Dude, First off, and I know you get this a lot, I like your blog. I don’t know what else to say……it helps me a bunch though. Anyway, I am a college student now and I’ve had celiac for the past few […]Read More
So a few days ago, we talked about Gluten-Free Love Stories and since then I’ve received some fantastic, heartwarming stories of how celiac/gluten has brought people together. I can’t wait to post them next month. But today, we have something quite the opposite. It […]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.
