July 29, 2021 | 0 Comments

Yes…a rare late afternoon blog post. Two cups of coffee and an espresso and I’m UP! I’ll make it a quick one. So on my mobile app for the celiac community, we have a restaurant directory of over 2,600 restaurants (with more added every […]

Which Meal Delivery Services Offer Gluten-free Food? And are they Celiac-Safe?

July 23, 2021 | 21 Comments

I use to love dinner time as a kid. I’d come home from school wondering what my mom had planned (this is before she got a job when I was 13). If I smelled spaghetti sauce, I was in high heaven. If I smelled […]

More Celiac Snake Oil…from a ‘Longevity Coach’ (seriously)

June 30, 2021 | 2 Comments

I’m going to start this rare night-time post with a disclaimer: I’m in a beyond pissy mood. Nothing seems to be going my way lately, and today I hit peak frustration. So my post may be more “colorful” than usual. You’ve been warned. I […]

‘Glutened’: A short film about celiac disease (that I love!)

May 21, 2021 | 21 Comments

This is cool. Like really, really cool. Not only do we have a film that gives a realistic look at celiac (coeliac) disease, but it’s done in a creative, artistic way. The name of the film is Glutened and it is described by Hayley […]

Celiac Disease: Doctor Horror Stories

May 13, 2021 | 17 Comments

In 2007, after a year of constant stomach pain and losing 15 pounds on an already pretty slim fit, I finally listened to Mrs. Dude and went to see a GI. (The lesson as usual? Mrs. Dude is always right and me…not so much.) After speaking […]

not eating out as a celiac

Eating Out with Celiac? It’s ok NOT TO EAT. Really.

May 10, 2021 | 32 Comments

First of all, a belated Happy Celiac Awareness month. I do believe we’ve made progress in the past years of 1) getting our disease out in the open more; and 2) reducing the number of idiotic gluten-free jokes. I had a friend come visit […]

Kudos to Wawa for their gluten free honesty. Just a few questions…

March 30, 2021 | 14 Comments

If you are on Twitter, you know there are a number of ads placed within your feed. It’s crazy (and when I say crazy, I mean scary) how tailored the ads are to their audiences. Must be the chip implanted in me when I […]

Celiac Disease: The Cycle from Hell

March 25, 2021 | 14 Comments

Celiac is such a strange little disease. You can go stretches where you feel totally fine and you find yourself thinking that you’ve got it all figured out. You’re like “Finally!” But then you get hit by god knows what and you become a […]

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.
