My Gluten-Free Christmas Wish List

gluten free christmas

Yeah…I know it’s late to be making a Christmas wish list. But I spoke to Santa directly (via Skype actually) and he said if I get my list in by the 24th, we’re cool. He also said I’ve been a good Dude this year; well at least all of my naughty stuff was kept behind closed doors. So basically…I’m in.

So Santa…here is my gluten free wish list. Thanks in advance. And if you want some awesome gluten-free cookies, I will leave them on the mantle for you, along with a nice Glutenberg IPA. Cheers my old, fat and hairy friend.

I wish for a healthy year for Mrs. Dude.

I wish for more free time.

I wish for a government that actually works FOR the people.

I wish for all of the success Jennifer’s Way Bakery deserves.

I wish for all “gluten-removed” beers to stop labeling their beers gluten-free.

I wish for the gluten jokes to cease and desist.

I wish for celiac disease to get the recognition and respect it deserves.

I wish to get my forums up and running so people can get the answers they need more quickly.

I wish for THE gfJules to have an amazing year after all of the crap she endured last year.

I wish for a year of joy for my wonderful Dudettes.

I wish for less exhaustion.

I wish for more Dark and Stormy’s.

I wish for less chaos in the world. We live in crazy times right now.

I wish for my book “Celiac: The User’s Manual” to be written and released as soon as humanly possible.

I wish for my weekends off to actually be weekends OFF.

I wish for my blog, my business and my new start up to skyrocket in 2015.

I wish for a healthy back.

I wish for a healthy front.

I wish for a healthy bottom (tushy-wise).

I wish for another year of great communication with the celiac community.

I wish for a cell phone that doesn’t begin to suck as soon as my warranty is up yet way before it’s eligible for an upgrade.

I wish for more creativity in the kitchen. (And not scrambled eggs 87 times per week.)

I wish for my guitar not to collect so much dust between the times I pick it up.

I wish for at least one of my New York sports teams to not be so putrid next year.

I wish for a rockin’ year for InsipredRD, one of my favorite celiacs.

I wish for more compassion, empathy and understanding and a lot less anger and divisiveness, no matter what side of the political aisle you sit on.

I wish for the Kardashians to live the rest of their lives in seclusion, where there is absolutely no connection with the outside world.

I wish for there to be no competition between the gluten-free bloggers. We all want the same thing: money…I mean awareness.

I wish for you all to have the happiest and healthiest of holidays. I so appreciate each and every one of you and may all of your wishes come to fruition.

Merry Christmas everyone. Take it away Bruce…

  1. Now that’s a darn good list – so ditto!

    And I have to add for me “let my intestines heal sooner than later so the weight loss/malasorption stops” – cause it’s scaring me to look like the 3rd world malnutrition images. 🙁

  2. Sounds good. I feel like the harder we work as a community, the better things will get in 2015 and beyond. Have a happy, Dude. Best to Mrs. Dude and the Dudettes.

  3. Best of luck Cindi. Hang in there and keep fighting the good fight. You WILL feel better!

    I too wish that my guitars weren’t collecting so much dust. Dude, if you’re ever in Nashvegas, look me up. I’ll brush up on my Springsteen and maybe we can have a little jam session.

  4. Merry Christmas! Your list is spot-on. I’m wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Thank you for your commitment to the celiac cause, and the community.

  5. I’ve been reading your posts without commenting since my celiac diagnosis back in October, but I just wanted to say, thanks so much Gluten Dude and I hope you get everything on your wishlist.

    I too am hoping for more kitchen creativity and less scrambled eggs in 2015.

      1. Necessity being the mother of invention, being forced to go GF is what led to my discovery of shakshuka. And a lot of other great NATURALLY GF (the best kind of GF) stuff from the Old World. Unfortunately it seems on our transatlantic trek, we in North America abandoned perhaps too much of the old culinary ways.

        Best holiday wishes to one and all!

  6. And to you too buddy.

    Can i add- I wish to find this magical little pill you take to make it safe to eat gluten. (You know, the one everyone who knows nothing about celiac asks why you dont take.)

    Merry Christmas and a safe dinner to you all.

  7. I think the world can rest easy that I won’t be picking up my accordion any time soon. But that doesn’t mean I’ve lost hope FDA will get off its unreasonable keister about 0333 and 0842. Know what I mean Drs. Hamburg and Woodcock?

    Wishing GD and everyone a “happy new one” this year!

  8. Merry Merry Christmas to the Dude family and community! Got me a new phone, so now your site works for me on the mobile again. Yay!

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.
