When I was diagnosed, my doc told me I had celiac disease (I had what???) and then politely showed me the door with the advice of “don’t eat gluten” (don’t eat what???). No literature. No guidance. No follow up. And mind you…I liked my […]Read More
The biggest lie in the world of celiac disease is that you’ll feel better immediately once you begin your gluten-free diet. It sure as hell didn’t happen to me and my guess is you also did not have those results. And it did not […]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.

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.
