Choose raw almonds and almond butter
Choose raw almonds and almond butter. The benefits can be experienced in their pure form, and hence not when roasted. When almonds are roasted they lose many of the healing properties of the omega oils that they are so rich in. Almonds are rich in:
omega 6’s that lower LDL, the bad cholesterol, and have been shown in a myriad of studies to reduce the risk of heart disease.
vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant needed for many functions of the human body.
copper, which amongst other things, is said to thwart the growth of gray hairs. not sure it’s working in my case.
Thank you for this enlightening class! Delicious and fun. I so rarely cook fish – but am off to Citarella for a branzino for the kids today!
See you again soon.
Thank you for all the love & laughter you put in to our cooking class! It was a truly great night and I’m so appreciative of your passion and energy for food and your ability to bring people together!
Elana, thank you so much for last night! It was so much fun and I can’t wait to make the dinner for my hubby. He is the cook in our family and I can’t wait to impress him. You made it fun and not intimidating for all of us.

Had an incredible dinner party and made the steak and “potato sticks”… All raved about the meal! Delicious! Can’t wait to have you in the OC!
My husband couldn’t stop eating your Persian lamb meatballs! Your recipes make my whole family so happy. Thank you Elana
It was such an eye opening and amazing night. Your recipes are to die for. I can’t even imagine what else we can cook up with you! We’ll see you again!
We had a choice to go to couples therapy or couples cooking classes so we chose Meal and A Spiel. We’re happy and going on 28 years!

I love cooking with Elana because she’s educating me about how to live a better, healthier, life.
I’ve only been to one or two classes, but you’ve changed my life.
Thanks again Elana. We are so glad we all could hang out and make/eat delicious food together.
