    Well, this would be AWESOME to win. Seeing as how I live right across the street from BYL! We love those ladies and would love free goodies even more.

  167. Amanda Flanigan says

    Benefit Your Life has been a Godsend for me! Since I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2007 at the age of 27, I had given up hope of enjoying the food and fellowship I had previously enjoyed. My husband took me to the market back when it was still divided into the store and small cafe area next door. I’ve been back quite frequently to say the least and I’m always excited to see what’s new. Love your products and your staff! Keep up the wonderful work you all are doing. You really are making a difference in people’s lives.

  168. Leah says

    Having Celiac, this basket looks like an amazing opportunity to try cooking new gluten free foods!

    Hi Elana,

    I stumbled on your website after researching foods that are gluten, dairy and sugar free. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, had surgery in November and chose not to go through the radiation and drugs suggested. I’m using food as my medicine along with the help of a holostic doctor. I visit your website every day to see what is new! I have a terrible sweet tooth and trying to give up sugar was a challenge. I love your recipes and have tried many. You have made my journey a little sweeter;). Thank you for all the time and effort and sharing with people like me who are on the road to better health,

    Warm regards,


  196. Karalee says
