Let Them Eat Cake
Just because we care about what we put in our bodies (or are told to care based on some snarky allergy) doesn’t mean we should give up all the fun and yuminess. Boulder’s Lillabee Baking believes this whole-heartedly, and has taken “allergy friendly baking” to new, and adorable, heights. Founder and second-generation Italian-American Indea Leo has an undeniable knack for baking that would send any sweet-toothed gal’s heart soaring. Yet diagnosed with a variety of food allergies in her early 20s, she quickly learned that her penchant for sweet treats didn’t mesh with her myriad dietary restrictions. With that, Indea was in the kitchen, mixing, blending and baking her heart out in search of a combination that would satisfy her sugar carvings, without compromising her health. The result is Boulder’s Lillabee Baking, the sweet little business that Indea runs with husband Jared Lovenduski. Lillabee dishes up a wide variety of baking mixes that are 100% allergy friendly and free of wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, oats and nuts. Choose from a Fudgy Brownie Mix, Yellow Cake Mix, Pancake Mix or Muffin Mix. What’s more, Lillabee mixes are made with all-natural, sustainably sourced ingredients that make the authentic taste possible (i.e. you won’t feel like you are eating cardboard). Available at Alfalfa’s Market, Lucky’s Market and Dish Gourmet in Boulder, Lillabee’s packaging is almost as sweet as its flavors, and will grace your ho-hum pantry shelves with undeniable style and charm.
