    The Gluten Dude app is the ONLY APP that vets restaurants before they get listed, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself. No fast food or large chain restaurants listed. Our goal is not more options but SAFER options.

    Find Gluten-free Options at Airports

    Traveling with celiac disease is a challenge to say the least. Finding GF food at airports just adds to that stress. The Gluten Dude app has over 100 international airports and the GF options at each so you won't fly hungry anymore.

  • icon-lets-connect

    Make Connections

    Celiac can be a lonely and misunderstood disease. The Gluten Dude app allows you to privately connect with others who have celiac disease, so you can make new friends and become part of a community of people who “get it”.

Let's Support

The Challenge
Getting the right answers to your questions.

The Solution
A forum where discussion is encouraged but fear-mongering and misinformation will not be. The internet is littered with falsehoods and dangerous information regarding celiac disease. You deserve to get honest answers from those who have been in your shoes.

Let's Connect

The Challenge
Isolation and feeling like you're alone in your gluten-free journey.

The Solution
Live chat. The app will connect you with others in the celiac/GF community, allowing one on one private chats. You’ll even have the option of providing your zip code, allowing people to search for others by location. People can connect when they’re traveling to a new town and get local help, but also they can make new friends in their own area, plan GF play-dates with other parents of GF kids, etc. There is also the option to block users from contacting you if you wish.

Let's Drink

The Challenge
Locating gluten-free beer.

The Solution
Beer, sadly, is not gluten-free. The most popular "gluten-free" beers on the market today are actually "gluten-removed" and are not safe to drink. There are a handful of amazing 100% gluten-free beers out there, but they can be difficult to find. The Gluten Dude app shows more than 17,000 stores, bars and restaurants where you can purchase gluten-free beer.

Who is Gluten Dude?

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.

Oh...and I wrote a book, which is available on Amazon.
