Quite a "View" of the GF Elisabeth Hasselbeckby thegspot
Oh, wait …. (Just jokes, E.H.)
What we meant to say was this: No matter your opinion of Elisabeth Hasselbeck and her viewpoints on various subjects, there is one very undeniable truth about the gal — she's workin' it to get the message our about a gluten-free lifestyle.
In a recent interview on Good Morning America, Hasselbeck talked about her experience with transitioning into a gluten-free lifestyle as a result of a Celiac disease diagnosis and shared an excerpt from her book, The G-Free Diet. With a motto like, "A diet for anyone who wants to lead a healthier lifestyle," Hasselbeck focuses more on gluten-free eating as a way of life than solely addressing Celiac disease. This seems to have peeved a few Celiacs, but we disagree. Is eating gluten-free tough? Absolutely. Does it mean that other people can't reap the rewards of leading a GF lifestyle just because they won't start convulsing if flour spends a minute on their lips? No. Sure, it's a tad bit irritating when some people take what is a necessary life decision for others and make it a fad, but who are we to judge? We're too busy enjoying our gluten-free chocolate chip cookies anyway …
So, take a peek at the video, and, of course, the book. And better yet, download this just-launched nifty app which includes tools for finding GF restaurants, what to avoid in terms of menu speak and how to make a request to a server to ensure your meal is gluten-free. Love it!
