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.
Remember Elissa Goodman? Elissa is a well-known nutritionist who (supposedly) has celiac disease. She was on a podcast with Maria Menounos in August and stated emphatically that you can indeed eat gluten again even if you have celiac disease. All you need to do […]Read More
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 […]Read More
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.” […]Read More
Let me take you back in time. The year is 2014 and the month is November. A company called 6 Sensor Labs reached out to me about a product they were developing. At the time, it was simply called the Portable Gluten Sensor. I […]Read More
Let me just clarify what this is about right away. This is not about who makes the best gluten-free bread. It’s not just about the “horror” of the holes in Udi’s bread. That’s been discussed here and here. Yeah…I know there are much worse […]Read More
Dude note: This article appears in the current issue of Simply Gluten-Free Magazine, where I have my own column. It’s a good magazine run by good people. Heck…they even turned down an advertising opportunity from Cheerios. And until March 31, get $6 off a […]Read More
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 […]Read More
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 […]Read More
[Quick Dude note: I’ll be at Jennifer’s Way Bakery this Saturday morning hanging with the wonderful Jennifer E. If you’re in town, stop by for a bagel or two and say hello.] So two nights ago, laying in bed thinking about where my life […]Read More
Wow…what a dirtbag. I really tried to give Lou Reyes the benefit of the doubt. It’s just who I am. Deep down, I want to believe people are good. But after the wave of emails I’ve received in the past week about this guy, […]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.
