    Thanks for doing another giveaway! I’ve always wanted a Vitamix (who doesn’t??). I have been following your blog for a long time. Didn’t know you were on FB so thanks for sharing that link! I was just telling a newbie GF friend of mine about your blog. Her first GF baking attempt she used Almond flour and it flopped. I told her about your blog and all the amazing recipes!!

  9. Marcia

    I’ve always wanted a vitamix, but I have made your recipes with my processor.
    I am especially fond of your breakfast bars, since I cannot find energy or breakfast bars with ingredients that I not allergic to!
    Thanks for inspiring me to bake again.

  10. Elena Colletti

    Thanks for your amazing recipes…We are having an Elana’s thanksgiving this year :) Would love a vitamix to make it easier ;)

  11. Alida

    LOVE your thoughtful and clearly explained recipes. I need a days base recipe app since I refer to them so often. A Vitamix would be a wonderful addition to helping improve my health. Thank you.

  12. My number one gift wish is a Vitamix. Winning one would make my dream come true and save me a bit of $$$ in the coming months.

  13. hedy

    You share recipes that are healthful as well as gluten-free. I enjoy getting your emails.

  14. Maryalicia Verdecchia

    wow! almost 10k likes! you are a popular lady but I know why- same reason I follow you!

  15. Susan

    I feel sad and left out. I do not do facebook. Is there another way to enter?

  16. Sandi Echelle

    Hi Elana,

    I am always eager to read your blog and follow your creative healthy recipes. I recently discovered, while on a shopping trip to Costco, the almond flour your recommend for many recipes at a good price. So I thought your readers would like to know they can snag a bargain too.
    Costco also sells Vitamix, but it’s still a luxury item even at the Costco price-point.
    To that end, I’d love to have the convenience of a Vitamix and hope that I might be the lucky one!
    Keep up your mission and the good work that supports it.
    Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Chanukah too.

    I love your recipes. They are easy and delicious! I am feeling left out too because I am not on facebook since my account got hacked into.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  21. Stephanie

  29. steve danielson

    People think they are increasing their business by using facebook … they just don’t realize how many of us they alienate by this type of offering. Giving things to people on Facebook and not making that available to those of us who can’t stand facebook is rude and inconsiderate!

    Would love to win but not on Facebook, thanks for the giveaway

  36. Marybeth

    Squeeeeee!!!! I hope I win! I want a vitamin so badly. We recently discovered our daughter has gluten& dairy allergies so I’ve been having to get more creative with cooking& soups have been a lifesaver- I’ve heard this is amazing for making soups in. *crosses fingers* *and toes* *and ears*

  37. Cyn

    Believe it or not, not everyone is on Facebook. I read your posts, recommend your recipes, and would love to win a Vitamix, but apparently do not qualify due to my computer habits.

Sorry, but comments are temporarily disabled for maintenance.

I'll update everyone shortly, but until then feel free to reach out on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!
Comments are greatly appreciated! Unfortunately Elana is not able to answer substitution questions, as the only way to know if something works is to test it, and she does not provide this service.
