Eating 100% gluten-free can be hard: both mentally and physically. Sadly, that makes us ripe for scammers telling us bad info for their own gains. What a world we live in.

It’s 2020 and Yeah…Udi’s Still Sux

October 29, 2020 | 12 Comments

So I used to have a bit of an infatuation with Udi’s. And not in a good way. I wrote about them in 2013 about the god-awful holes in their bread. Their response? “We are aware of the issue and we are fixing it.” […]

Is There an Accurate Test for Gluten Sensitivity?

November 28, 2015 | 14 Comments

Dude note: The holidays are all about giving. So I thought I’d take the 14 days after Thanksgiving and answer 14 emails I’ve received from my fellow celiacs asking for guidance. And I’d like this to be a communal effort. My advice, shocking as […]

Gluten Cutter…Profiting Off Your Weakness

I hate Gluten Cutter. I mean, I really, really detest everything about it. If you haven’t heard of this ridiculous product, they claim it allows you to eat gluten and not suffer the consequences. Does Gluten Cutter work? Now that’s funny. I would explain […]

The Gluten Dude App: For a Better Gluten-free Life

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

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.
