A gluten-free diet won't stop Elisabeth Hasselbeck from learning the family recipes.

"My grandmother was giving me her meatball-and-sauce recipe," The View co-host, 31, says in an upcoming issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. "When she got to the part about adding breadcrumbs, she looked up at me and said, 'Elisabeth, you can add whatever you want here.' I thought, if my Italian grandmother can understand being G-free, anyone can."

It's been a struggle for Hasselbeck to live gluten-free since she was diagnosed with celiac disease seven years ago. Now, though, she's written her own book, The G Free Diet, a guide for those who want to live gluten-free.

Even her family is getting in on the act. Daughter Grace, 4, "eats anything," but Hasselbeck's son Taylor, who's almost 18 months, is a little picky. "He actually throws his food at me – it's like I'm playing defense with him. Maybe it means he'll be an NFL great!"
