What Happened to Celiac.com?

November 1, 2019 | 23 Comments

How the mighty have fallen. Flashback: I was diagnosed with celiac disease in (…trying to remember the exact date/month…) September of 2007. I was sick as a dog. I was confused. I was angry. And I was lost. No…I wasn’t lost in the flood. […]

Remember when Domino’s came out with a gluten-free crust in 2012? Refresh your memory here. They marketed it to the gluten-free/celiac communities, but then added a disclaimer that it may not be safe. But then the National Foundation for Celiac Disease partnered with them […]

Did I Overreact to this ‘Gluten-Free Insurance’ Press Release?

July 23, 2019 | 20 Comments

So I was on Twitter last week when I came across a post by my friends at Celiac.com. (Note: They’re not my friends. And yes…I know Twitter is a cesspool, but it allows me to stay in touch with the celiac community.) The post […]

Pizza, GF Influencers & the Celiac Community

June 28, 2019 | 9 Comments

Two quick notes regarding the title of this post: 1) It took me way to long to come up with it…and I still think it stinks. 2) The word “influencers” makes my skin crawl. Can we proceed now? Great. Today we are talking about […]

Update on the below post. Perhaps I should have done more research before posting it. I believe in science. Dinosaurs: real. Climate change: real. Vaccines needed: real. You get the point. I try my best never to be swayed by public opinion. I’m also […]

What Recourse Do We Have When a Restaurant Lies to Us?

June 6, 2019 | 11 Comments

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.
